Affordable Archos 97 Carbon with Android 4.0 ICS announced for US and UK
If you’ve missed Archos and its Android devices, you should be happy to find out that the French company has announced a brand new tablet, dubbed Archos 97 Carbon.
The 97 Carbon is the first from a new series of entry-level tablets called Archos Elements. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and comes with “an elegant aluminum finish.” The tablet features a 9.7 inch IPS display with 1024 x 768 pixels, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 2MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, HDMI-out port, full-sized USB port, 1GHz single-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support.
The Archos 97 Carbon will be available starting this month in the US, for $249.99, and in the UK for £219.99. These are certainly good prices, and the 97 Carbon should appeal to anyone who wants an ICS tablet that’s not high-end.
