Archos 101 now shipping, Android tablet game really heating up


We were really digging this 10-inch Android tablet when we spotted it back in August, and now it’s shipping for a totally palatable $300 pricetag. It’s powerful enough to play 720p video, has a 1024 x 600 screen, HDMI out, 802.11n WiFi and even a front facing camera. Plus there’s even the somewhat comforting notion that this isn’t Archos’ first time to the Android tablet rodeo. Of course, the big drawback is the lack of Android Market, but there are always hacks to solve that, and Archos preloads some good apps to get you started. The tablet is shipping with Android 2.1, but Archos pinky swears it’ll be getting 2.2 by the end of the month. Can’t handle 10 whole inches of Android? Try the 7-incher Archos 70 on for size. You can’t say they aren’t trying.

HP Photosmart eStation C510 printer / Android tablet now on sale


An HP Slate it isn’t, but if you plop down $399.99 for the eStation C510, you’ll also bring home a detachable 7-inch Android 2.1 tablet that’s designed to act as a “wireless digital companion and control panel for remote printing.” We’ll point you to the source link if you’re actually interested in the printer specs, and you can head right over here for a hands-on preview of the (admittedly lackluster) tablet. But do us a favor — don’t buy this thing for the slate alone, okay? Okay.
