"How do you tablet?" Oh yes, that's Archos' new tag line when it comes to its growing number of Android tablets. Good timing since, you know, it just went ahead and released a quintuplet of new gadgets. The offerings range from small PMP-like devices with 2.8- and 3.4-inch screens to higher-end 4.3-, 7- and 10.1-inch tablets. All will ship with Android 2.2 "Froyo" and will include accelerometers, while only some have capacitive touchscreens, front-facing cameras and 1GHz processors. There's a lot more to them all -- we're talking five different devices, of course -- so we suggest hitting the break for a short rundown of each of them along with our early impressions. And don't forget to check out the the gallery of hands-on pictures and videos below.

I can't believe the Archos 28 and 32 have an ARM Cortex A8!!! Christ...Perhaps I'll be getting rid of my WITS A81. The Archos 70 has much better specs at only slightly more. I mean, accelerometer, camera + mic, capacitive multitouch screen (!!!), faster A8 Cortex, 16 GB of internal memory (!!!)... At only $275. Only thing lacking is GPS which I don't need really.
