We took a look at the Arnova 9 G2 just last week, and here we are with yet another budget friendly tablet from Archos, where it comes in the form of the Arnova 8b G2. Yes sir, this particular model will offer several tweaks to the Arnova 8 G2 which has already made its way to store shelves for a fair number of months already. As for the Arnova 8b G2, what is slightly different would be an altered case design, and you will also find the physical home, back, menu, and search buttons to be missing. I guess this keeps in line with many other modern Android-powered devices these days, although to see Android 2.3 Gingerbread accompany the Arnova 8b G2 is not exactly an encouragement, as we would have preferred to work with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Perhaps it is just a precursor of better things to come? Hopefully Archos will outline their plans for Ice Cream Sandwich, since that version does not require the missing hardware buttons mentioned.
Hardware specifications of the Arnova 8b G2 include a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 single core processor, an 8″ 800 x 600 pixel capacitive multitouch display, anywhere from 4GB to 8GB of internal memory and 512MB RAM. You can expand its storage space via a microSD memory card slot, while Wi-Fi connectivity ensures you can surf wherever you are without having to rely on expensive data plans with a 3G account.
