Plus, unlike previous Archos tablets with resistive touch panels, the ARNOVA 7b G3 is adorned with a 7" capacitive multi-touch screen. Operating with effortless ease, the 800 x 480 pixel display inspires creativity and innovation. It's also visually stimulating, as it supports H.264 high-definition 1080p video playback. It supports avi, mp4, mkv, mov and flv videos with the proper codecs. For audio, the tablet supports WAV, MP3, APE, OGG and FLAC formats. It even supports four different photo formats for maximum flexibility, which are JPEG, BMP, GIF and PNG. Since storing plenty of media on your tablet is a must, the 7b G3 is equipped with 8GB of flash storage. If that's not enough, the MicroSD (SDHC) card reader affords plenty of storage expansion with up to 32GB.
It's well-known that Archos tablets excel as digital media players. You'd be hard-pressed to find a media format that this tablet doesn't support. However, the 7b G3 is overflowing with apps as well. Not only does it afford access to the Android AppsLib, it already comes preloaded with helpful connection applications including a web browser and an email app. For users that like to put a little bit of themselves into their technology, the 7b G3 supports advanced personalization. You can choose your user-interface from five different home screens and you can also create widgets for your apps, which lets you appropriate home screen space for the apps you use the most.
The 7b G3 is designed to give you a fulfilling Internet experience as well.

Plus, the tablet's 800 x 480 native resolution and 7" display support full-page web browsing. This means that you'll be able to scroll through websites without incessantly zooming in and out. Another Internet highlight is the 7b G3 has Flash 11 support, which lets you experience the full web - including Flash games and videos. There are also apps for all your favorite social networking sites from YouTube to Facebook.
