According to Archos, the 70 will sport the same 1GHz A8 Cortex processor found in the Archos 43, but with various other additions such as a HDMI-out port, a MicroSD card reader (selected versions only), a webcam and a front VGA camera.
In addition, the Archos 70 also comes in two variants: one version contains onboard Flash storage at up to a maximum capability of 8GB of built-in Flash memory. It is also this version which will have the aforementioned MicroSD card reader; the other variant will sport an internal 250GB hard disk.
As its name suggests, the Archos 101 sports a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen capable of outputting a resolution of 1024 x 600 (WXVGA), while its internal hardware is almost identical to those found in the Archos 70. Ironically, despite it being larger, the Archos 101 loses the option to come bundled with an internal hard disk, thus forcing users to rely on either the onboard Flash storage or MicroSD cards for additional storage capacity.
