After the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet came out, we suspected we'd start to see the price of Android tablets shift downward, and it looks like we were right — Archos just announced the 70b Internet Tablet, a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet that costs just $199. It may be cheap, but the spec list is solid: 1.2GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a 7-inch, 1024 x 600 capacitive multitouch display. Archos also says it's the first sub-$200 tablet to run Android 3.2, though there are other Honeycomb-running tablets like the $199 T-Mobile SpringBoard. Of course, Archos hasn't made a name for itself with great tablet hardware and Honeycomb still feels somewhat incomplete, but at $199 it's possible we could forgive and forget. The 70b will hit stores in January, but by then its price tag might not be so special — we're betting on a flood of cheap tablets at CES in a few weeks.
