Agreed. I have a desire for a decent tablet sub-200. What are some alternatives? :X
I am with Charbax on this. All four of the ideas he listed seem reasonable. (and the reason for the delay may be two of these reasons, not just one. )
But the good news is that in any of the cases, it still seems likely that Archos/Arnova will release one or more updated Arnovas very soon. At this point, it seems clear that they are waiting for the June gen 9 event.
I'm not buying any tablet from anyone until the Archos event! It is worth the wait.
FWIW, I have never owned any Android tablet, I am new to this. But I read news and blogs about many tablets and PMPs, from many different perspectives. Looking at all the data, I have come to trust Charbax's analysis of the situation.
Also, even though I have not yet purchased a tablet, Charbax has convinced me that when you compare how much product you get for the dollar (or Euro), Archos is the best value out there. Don't get me wrong, I love the work by some other companies. The Samsung galaxy Tab is fantastic, and a fairly good deal, and Apple's iPad 2 really is impressive. But they are not the best value. For the same amount of money, you get more from Archos.- Robert
