$199.00 Archos 70b vs $124.00 Ainol Novo 7 Elf II
Archos 70b IT is $149 and fully available at all major resellers in Europe and the USA, like Amazon, Best Buy, NewEgg, B&H, Adorama, J&R, Toysrus, Buy.com etc etc etc etc etc
Ainol is NOT for sale anywhere outside of China. And exporting Ainol out of China means $30+ shipping and upwards $40+ for the conpulsory import duty.
$199.00 Archos 70b vs $199.00 Nexus 7
Nexus win. No doubt about it.
Archos 70b is $149 and has things like kick-stand, MicroSD, HDMI output, USB Host that make it still more interesting for many.
But anyways you have to compare these:
Arnova 7 G3 available for $99 in all the major stores including Amazon, TigerDirect, B&H, Sears, NewEgg, e-Cost etc.
Nexus 7 16GB supposedly available for $249, that is the only one and already not available anymore, out of stock at Sears, Adorama, B&H, it's not available anywhere.
Archos wins by far. Who wants to pay $249 for a Jelly Bean Tablet without a kick-stand, without MicroSD and HDMI when you can have one with MicroSD and HDMI for $99 from Archos under the Arnova brand?
Archos wins big.
Next up in the next 2-3 months Archos also has these weapons:
Archos G10 OMAP4470 with upgraded performance, features and designs yet still $199-$299
Archos Elements RK3066 with specs close to Asus Nexus7, specs better than iPad2 and prices $99-$199
Arnova G3 and G4 RK2918/2906 with specs better than a Samsung Galaxy Tab, fully running any latest Jelly Bean Android and priced $49-$99.
