The latest semi-budget tablet from ARCHOS is now available to buy direct from the maker, with the ARCHOS 97 Carbon up for order on its site for £229. For that money you get a 9.7″ 4:3 aspect ratio tablet using IPS display tech and running at 1024×768 resolution, official Play Store access, SD card support, H.264 video playback and Android 4.0 as the OS.
It’s powered by a 1GHz processor, mind, so might not be the hottest performer around, but ARCHOS does claim 8 hours of battery life for video use, so that’s the benefit of a low power machine.
Dual cameras, too. The full tech specs of the 97 Carbon can be ploughed through over on the ARCHOS site.
