Archos announces 3 new Android Tablets and two portable players.

Not one but 5. Impressive. Actually they are not all tablets as two of the announced devices have 2.8 and 3.2 inches of display and they are probably the first Android portable music players ever built. The players will be available sometimes this month at prices starting at $99. The other three devices are the ones that have our attention. Those are the real tablets with screen size from 4.3" to 10.1". The latter is more like a netbook, without Windows, Linux and a physical keyboard.

The Archos 43 is priced at $199. Powered by Froyo, the device sports a 1GHz processor, 8GB storage, a resistive touchscreen, WiFi, HDMI output, USB host etc.

The Archos 70 will sell for $274. Also powered by Froyo, it has more or less the same specs as the Archos 43, with the exception of a larger 7" inch screen which is also Capacitive; 16 & 250 GB and a webcam for video calls. Unfortunately, the Archos 70 is a WiFi only device.

The Archos 101 offers 8 and 16 GB of storage and a 10" capacitive. Here again, no other wireless connections besides WiFi. Price: $299.

These devices will reach online stores from mid-September to mid-October.
