Archos Announces Archos 97 Xenon, A 9,7 Inch Low-End Slate


The Android tablet market is growing as we speak. Day by day, it’s getting bigger and bigger, with more tablets available to choose from. There are some big players who rule the market, like Asus, Acer and Samsung, but there’s still place for the smaller ones to show what they are made of. A pure example is Archos. It’s not what we call a leading tablet manufacturer, but it offers some pretty good low-end tablets for the right price. And it’s not afraid to announce its newest tablet, the Archos 97 Xenon. Its medium of choice was its Facebook page. In other words:

Say hello to the ARCHOS 97 Xenon – a 3G connected 9.7 inch IPS tablet – the second device in the ARCHOS Elements range.
