Archos has two Elements tablets up for sale, the 9.7-inch Carbon and the similarly-sized Xenon. A third slate is ready to join the collection.
The name of the new Android 4.0 tablet is Archos 80 Cobalt
. The size of the tablet is 8 inches in LCD diagonal.
The screen does not have the 16:9 cinematic aspect ratio, but 4:3. On that note, the native resolution is of 1024 x 768 pixels. A bit on the low side but, then again, despite what Apple and Samsung would have one believe, super resolutions on small tablet screens don't really matter overmuch.
After all, there is a reason regular monitors aren't going beyond Full HD quality very often. There is only so much detail the human eye can take before it can't make the difference anymore.
At any rate, the 80 Cobalt tablet has a thickness of 12 mm / 0.48 inches and a weight of 470 grams. The price of under $200 / 200 Euro accounts for everything mentioned so far, as well as two cameras (2 MP back, 0.3 MP front), USB 2.0 (one port), a speaker and 8 GB of storage.
Finally, the dual-core 1.6 GHz CPU, the quad-core GPU and 1 GB of RAM can play everything up to Full HD video, from the on-board storage or microSDHC memory card (up to 64 GB).
Update November 1, 2012:
