With the Arnova 7b G2 Dual Touch, Arnova is starting to offer a cheaper version of the Arnova 7 G2 Android Tablet. The major difference is a Dual Touch 7 inches resistive screen instead of the capacitive one on the Arnova 7 G2. The new tablet case breaks from the old habits of the Archos 7HT heritage, with a new case inspired by the older Archos 70 IT model, slightly modified (plastic only backside structure and no kickstand)

The device keeps most of the other attributes from the Arnova 7 G2, such as the Rockchip 2918 CPU running at
1 GHz, a camera and Android 2.3 Gingerbread
system which is setup to support 3G wireless networks with the aid of Archos 3G Stick.

This Archos 7b G2 Dual Touch seems to have a quite agressive pricing, being available as low as 99 euros in France.

99 euros for the 4 Gb, quite a good price.

Very strabge box in the first post. I've bought 7b G2 tablet, it's realy has capacitive screen, I tryed to use it with stylus, but it recognized only fingers, and it's written on my box. And it has 256 mb ram vs 512 7 G2, it's true;

Thanks for the picture, we'll clarify in the BLOG the article, as Arnova seems to use the same Arnova 7b G2 reference for the capacitive and resistive. 

The resistive should be identified with the "Dual Touch" info, which is not written on your box.

Also 8 Gb storage on the capacitive vs 4 Gb on the resistive model.

Thanks again for the info 😉
