Archos 70b looks into pre ordersThe Archos 70b that visited the FCC earlier this month is finally available for pre-order, and this e-book reader won’t really break the bank either. It seems to cater towards the entry-level market, boasting a 7-inch WVGA touchscrene display, 4GB of internal memory to hold all of your favorite digital tomes, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connectivity that helps you surf the Internet as well as download your e-books – no 3G support here, so you might just have to live it out in public places with Wi-Fi networks or at home instead. An SD memory card slot is there for future expansion purposes, powered by a 10-hour battery life. Would you fork out €99.99 for this? Well, it is expected to hit the market in Q1 next year, which is three months at the very latest. We don’t forsee this making a huge splash in the e-book reader market anytime soon, but it might be a good primer for those who are getting started.
