There’s something good waiting in the desert at CES — and you won’t need an interesting vision quest to find it. Archos has announced its 70b Internet Tablet, the company’s first Honeycomb-based slate for less than two hundred bucks ($199, to be exact). The 70b IT will be lightweight (though we’re not sure exactly how lightweight), and ship with a 1.2 GHz processor, 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen, 8 gigs of flash storage, 512MB of RAM and WiFi connectivity. There’s also Android Market access, unlike with some tablets, along with HDMI output and a microSD slot. Are you sold? You’ll need wait only a few more weeks to take one home — the 70b is expected to hit stores in January, and those of you lucky enough to be trekking out to Vegas next month can check it out at the company’s booth at CES. Jump past the break for the full PR.
