Background and Identification
Building on the idea that smaller is better, many companies decided that even a laptop could be made more portable, and the era of tablets was born. While most tablets have a few buttons, they tend to utilize touch-screen technology. Tablet computers come in a range of sizes and are manufactured by many different companies.
Arnova tablets are sold by Archos, a French multinational electronics company that manufactures tablets, smartphones, portable media players, and portable data storage devices. The Arnova line of tablets was released in 2011 as a series of low-cost Android tablets. The official Android Market is not included on Arnova tablets out of the box, but the Android Market can be installed on the tablets by users.
A sure-fire way to identify that you are holding a tablet in your hands is by checking to see if it is able to be held in your hands. Tablets are generally bigger than mobile cellular devices, with screens in the 7-inch to 11-inch range, but smaller than laptops and without the folding capabilities.
Android tablets incapsulate any tablet computers running on the Android OS operating system. Tablets occupy the weird space in between phones and computers, functioning as larger mobile devices that rely primarily on touch input, although some models have the functionality to attach additional peripherals. Android tablets can be largely identified as any tablet computer not using either Windows OS or iOS.
Arnova tablets include the name “Arnova” in capital letters in the center of their bottom bezel. The tablet’s model name is sometimes printed next to the “Arnova” name.
