    com and we are taking a look at some of the hottest new Android powered devices on the market today. And this is brand-new from Archos, it's the Archos 7, it's a 7 inch tablet with a very high resolution screen. The screen is absolutely gorgeous, very responsive touch screen. It's extremely thin; it's extremely light and has some really-really incredible features onboard, like a front facing cameras. So you can use this to do video conferencing wirelessly with the built-in wireless, that's right in here. It does have built-in Wi-Fi, it has built-in Bluetooth. It has some features that you don't find on the other tablets, like say, an HDMI port, so you can plug this directly in to your high definition big screen television. It also has USB ports as well, so you can use any of your external storage devices or supported USB accessories. And one little thing you're going to find in this, that you don't find in other tablets, that makes it quite handy, built-in kickstand, that allows it to sit right up. So if you are on a plane or you're sitting at a desk and you are watching a movie, you can just prop it right up there without needing any other accessories. And of course, it does all the stuff you expect Android to do. You can browse the Web, check your email, play games, watch videos, look at all of your photos; it's all available right here on this extremely thin tablet device. Now these come in around the $300 range, but you're getting a lot of tablet for the price. It's fast, it's thin, it's light. This is really where the future of tablets is going, right here.
