I normally don’t post press releases over here but this one I think is an exception. Archos just announced the ArcBook which is running Android and it has a 10.1inch touchscreen, full keyboard and access to Google Play and it’s only $170..
Here’s the PR:
ARCHOS, a pioneer in Android™ devices, unveils the ARCHOS ArcBook, the first Android netbook with touchscreen designed with productivity and value in mind. The ARCHOS ArcBook offers students and mobile professionals the convenience of a keyboard and trackpad and the superb user-experience and mobility of an Android tablet at a budget-friendly price.
Available for $169.99, the ARCHOS ArcBook is the ultimate value-packed, on-the-go productivity machine running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It is preinstalled with Office suite Pro 6, making creating and editing Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF files easy.
It allows access to all Google services, including the Google Play application store, Google Chrome web browser and other Google Apps such as YouTube, Gmail, Translate and more. It also comes with 15 GB of free Google Drive cloud storage, enough to store a plethora of documents.
The ARCHOS ArcBook has a 10.1-inch touchscreen with a full keyboard and integrated Android shortcuts keys to maximize typing speed. Connectivity and expandability have been boosted thanks to a full USB host port and it has enough battery power for more than 10 hours of continuous use.
