While Archos announced many new models during the MWC 2014 event, we were still missing a few unannounced ones. One of them was the 70b Cobalt tablet and today, we are happy to share more information with you. Archos Cobalt range of tablets is all about offering tablets with complete access to the Google mobile applications and Archos multimedia applications(which are now also ported to all Android 4.1+ devices) combined with the maximum in affordability. Basically, 70b Cobalt is just another budget tablet from Archos and there is nothing revolutionary. Compared to the 70 Cobalt, the bezel is slightly smaller on the sides, the front camera and the physical buttons are moved and there is a different SoC installed inside. 70bcobalt-nowrmk
