Archos may not sell tablets the same way as Apple and Samsung do but there’s no stopping the company from releasing Android tablets. Honestly, I respect Archos for the products its been releasing lately.
The latest Android tablet to be added to its extensive list is this Archo Gen10 XS. This tablet features a 10.1-inch screen, ultra-thin design, a keyboard dock, and is powered unknown but fast graphics processor.
The Archos 101XS runs Ice Cream Sandwich. It comes with magnets that can keep the tablet and keyboard together when in closed position. Open up the tablet and you have something like an ultrabook.
In “open” position, a simple mechanism keeps the tablet up. Note that the connection between the keyboard and tablet is a physical one. There is no Bluetooth involved and there is no need to charge the keyboard. Although the tablet can be charged while connected to the keyboard, there is no integrated battery in the keyboard, so this is different from the ASUS transformer series. Of course, given the $399 price for the combo, it would be impossible for Archos to include additional battery capacity.
