Archos has announced five Android-based tablets due for the fall ranging in price between $100 and $349, with screen sizes between 2.8 inches and 10.1 inches.

The two smallest devices, the Archos 28 and the Archos 32, are both Wi-Fi connected portable media players for listening to music and watching movies. The 28 features a 2.8-inch touchscreen, 4GB of storage, web browser, and downloadable applications with a price tag of $100. The 32 features a slightly larger 3.2-inch touchscreen, 8GB of storage, built-in video camera, and is capable of playing back high definition videos at a price of $150.

The Archos 43 sports many of the same features as its little brothers, but features a 4.3-inch 854×480 touchscreen, kickstand, HD video recording, 8GB of storage, and a price tag of $200.

Stepping up into the full tablets, the Archos 70 features a 7-inch 800×480 touchscreen, Wi-Fi, kickstand, front-facing VGA webcam, and two storage options: an 8GB model for $275 and a 250GB model for $350.

Finally, the Archos 101 features a 10.1-inch 1024×600 touchscreen, a thickness of less than half an inch, and a weight of just over one pound. Like the 70, this one’s got a front-facing VGA webcam and kickstand, but adds support for storage upgrades via microSD cards. It’ll be available in an 8GB model for $300 and a 16GB model for $350.

All of the tablets feature Android 2.2, with the two smallest tablets running on an 800 MHz processor, while the three larger ones leverage a 1 GHz processor. None of them appear to have access to the Android Market, instead relying upon Archos’ own “AppsLib” repository.

No word on a firm release date, though the “fall” timeframe indicates they’ll be here before the holidays.
