The 8-inch Archos 80 XS will cost Ä200, thus competing head-to-head with the Asus-made Google Nexus 7 which was just made available in Germany, France, and Spain for the exact same price. Archosí advantage will, of course, be the bigger screen and (for some) the 4:3 aspect ratio. The 80 XS will arrive by the end of the year, and the coverboard may not be included in the box in the cheapest version (unlike what the case is with the 101 XS, which effectively canít be bought without Archosí magnetic keyboard dock).
The Archos 97 XS, again coming with a 4:3 aspect ratio (which is rare in the Android world, but mimics the iPads) and an IPS touchscreen, will be on the market in early November, with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean preinstalled. It will be sold for Ä399 (so Ä20 more than the 101 XS, oddly). This high(er) price may have something to do with the screen, but we canít be sure for now.
The prices quoted above may of course change between now and the release date for each tablet. Like their names imply, all of these will be very thin, in a similar fashion to the already announced 101 XS. If we go by past events, do expect the entire G10/XS lineup to be powered by the same TI OMAP 4470 dual-core processor too.
