Archos 97 Carbon

Archos today announced a new entry-level line of tablets, known as "Elements." The first device in the series is the Archos 97 Carbon, with a 9.7-inch IPS display running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It's got 16GB of internal storage and can take up to a 32GB microSD card, or a flash drive in its full-size USB port. It's also got a 1GHz processor (Archos didn't say what kind) and 1GB of RAM, along with front and rear cameras (again, Archos hasn't given exact specs). But we do know it weighs 21.8 ounces and is 0.45 inches thick. 

In addition to the Carbon 97, Archos says we can expect 7- and 8-inch tablets as well.

The Archos Carbon 97 will be available sometime this month (Archos didn't say when) for between $229.99 and $249.99 in the U.S., while British prices will start at £219.99 (~$340).
