    The Archos 97 Carbon Tablet Now Available for $250


    Archos just launched their newest tablet called the 97 Carbon. The tablet has some decent specs especially for a 10-inch tab, and a price tag of only $249.99. It actually compares fairly favorably against the Nexus 7, since it is a 10-inch tablet with 16GB of storage at the same price point as the 16GB Nexus 7. Unfortunately the obvious exceptions are that the Nexus 7 has Jelly Bean, whereas this tablet still comes with ICS, and the 97 Carbon only has a single-core processor. It is posible that it may get an upgrade to Jelly Bean in the future, but there has been no official statement regarding this, so we can't count on it. The Archos 97 Carbon comes with the following specs:
    • 1 GHz single core ARM Cortex A8 CPU
    • 1 GB RAM
    • 16 GB Storage
    • microSD card slot as well
    • 9.7 inch IPS display having a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels
    • Android 4.0 ICS
    • USB port
    • Access to the Google Play Store.

    What do you guys think? Does this look like a good bargain for a 10-inch tablet?

    "The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?"

    Yup, ditto. Don't think I would ever buy a 10" tab with less than what the N7 has. It would be just too slow. The JB+N7 combo has spoiled me and I seriously think these other tab manufacturers need to wake up and start developing the next N7 killer.

    What does the N7 have? What is low end and top end as far as tablet CPU's? I've been considering getting a tablet.
    So MattyP how do you get all the ladies??
    'MattyP' I just offer classes on upgrading their OS...
    Really?? That's it??
    'MattyP' yeah, the chicks love it when you give em an upgrade...

    The N7 has a QUAD CORE processor. (Advantage N7)
    This has a SINGLE core which is considered the low end.
    The N7 doesn't have a SD card slot. (Advantage: every other Android tablet).

    I think this is still a great deal. I'd say the first good 10" tablet at a sweet price point. If I didn't already get a Refurb Thrive for $209 a few weeks ago, I'd get this.
    Still... would be a much more attractive tab to the more demanding folks out there if it had at least a dual core. Most would agree a dual is the minimum you should buy. A few of us would consider a single at the right price... which I think this is.

    First ive heard of Lepan2. Looks good.
    Except Ive never heard of that company. Not a deal breaker though at that pricepoint.
