After releasing the 97 Carbon a few days ago, Archos is ready for its next Android adventure. The French company will unveil its latest flagship tablet in about three weeks. That’s straight from the horse’s mouth, since it’s been said on its official Facebook page.
It’s almost certain that we’re talking about a 10.1-inch device here, probably named 101xs G10. Judging by the ‘xs’ in that name, it should be considerably slimmer than past efforts from Archos. And it will look like this:
What isn’t very clear is whether there will be just one G10 tablet (this one), or more. The previous generation, G9, had two members – the 101 G9 (10.1-inch) and the 80 G9 (8-inch). These were announced last June and started shipping a few months later with what was then a pretty unbeatable price/features ratio.
So we’re hoping that the G10 tablet (or tablets) have that too. However, today the tablet space has changed a bit in the past few months, since we have $199 quad-core devices already available (cough… Nexus 7). So Archos needs to double down on that price effectiveness if it wants its tenth generation tablets to be highly regarded.
