Cheap Archos 9.7 Carbon Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet launched in the US and UK
Officially announced earlier this month, the Archos 9.7 Carbon is available for purchase now both in the US, and the UK.
Part of Archos’ new Element series of tablets, the 9.7 Carbon features a 9.7 inch IPS display with 1024 x 768 pixels, aluminum case, Wi-Fi, GPS, 1GB of RAM, 1GHz single-core processor, VGA front-facing camera, 2MP rear camera, stereo speakers, micro HDMI, full USB port, 16GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. It’s certainly not a bad device for its price point, but it still can’t compete with Google’s Nexus 7, which costs $199.99, and features a quad-core processor, plus a display of higher resolution (7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixels).
Archos didn’t say if it plans to update the 9.7 Carbon to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (it probably will though).
