Not 4G

Most tablets that have been available for more than two years are not 4G. The Archos 70b is no exception to this as it too is not 4G.

Chart Edit

Not 3G

The Archos 70b is not 3G, although it is worth noting that most of the other tablet computers of this age and spec are also not 3G.

Chart Edit

The Archos 70b supports a newer Bluetooth version than most tablet computers of a comparable age and spec to it. This tablet computer supports a 2.1 bluetooth version, whereas most tablets of this age and type support a 4 bluetooth version.

4 Other reasons to consider the Archos 70b

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when Archos released the 70b.

Average Processor Frequency

At 1.2 gigahertz, the Archos 70b has a relatively average processor frequency compared to most of the other tablet computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Average Display Diagonal

The Archos 70b has a pretty average display diagonal (7 inches) compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for more than two years.

Tablet computers with a larger display diagonal that might also be worth looking at include the Visual Land Prestige 10[plb_2104121_price] (10" and higher rated).

Average Internal Storage Capacity

With an internal storage capacity of 8 gigabytes, the Archos 70b has a fairly standard internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been around for a similar time to the 70b.

If this tablet internal storage capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to consider the Visual Land Prestige 10[plb_2104121_price] (16GB) which also has a higher rating.
