Archos introduces its new ELEMENTS series of entry-level Android tablets. The first model to be released is the 9.7-inch 97 Carbon, and the company will launch 7-inch and 8-inch models later. The device runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It is capable of Full HD 1080p video playback.
The 97 Carbon comes with a 9.7-inch IPS LCD touchscreen with 5 point multitouch and 1024×768 resolution, a 2 Megapixel main camera and a 0.3 Megapixel front-facing camera. It has HDMI output for showing media content on a HDTV. The 9.7-inch Android device supports WiFi 802.11n connectivity and has USB 2.0 port.
