Archos 70c Color eReader On Presale

Archos has a new Android-based color eReader on presale called the Archos 70c.

Engadget reports: “The Android 2.1-powered book substitute with a 7-inch 800 x 480 TFT display has popped up for pre-order on JR.com. No picture (although we assume it’s pretty much the same as the 70b), a $149.99 price tag, and no definitive release date. Resistive touch screen, 600MHz CPU, 4GB Storage, WiFi, SD slot, and a 10-hour untethered lifeline.”

Archos’ eReaders support various eBook formats including: TXT, PDF, ePUB, PDB, FB2, HTML, RTF, MOBI, and Adobe DRM epub and PDF formats. Users can use the tablet to buy eBooks through the Kobo Bookstore, eBooks.com, WH Smith UK, as well as various free eBook sites such as Project Gutenberg and FreeeBooks.net.
