Archos 97 Carbon

Remember that super-affordable Archos 97 Carbon that we talked about a couple of weeks ago? Well, the $249 Ice Cream Sandwich-powered tablet is now on sale. As a refresher, the 97 Carbon sports a 9.7-inch IPS display with 1024 x 768 resolution. It ships with 16GB of storage, upgradeable to 48GB with a 32GB microSD card. You'll find a 1 GHz processor and 1 GB RAM powering this slate, which is good enough to decode full 1080p video and output it to an HDTV with the built-in HDMI port. Shipping is free from Archos.

Archos Carbon 97 tablet: 9.7-inch display, Android 4.0, $249.99

Archos Carbon 97 tablet

Archos has announced the Carbon 97, a new, 9.7-inch tablet that ships running Android 4.0  Ice Cream Sandwich. The IPS display has a resolution of 1024 x 768, and it packs a 1 GHz ARM processor and 1 GB RAM on the inside. You get front- and rear-facing cameras and 16 GB of storage space (which you can expand with a microSD card, if you'd like.) The most surprising part of this, though, is the fact that the Archos Carbon 97 will sell for just $249.99. To put that in perspective, that's the price you'd pay for a Nexus 7 tablet, and the Carbon 97 has a much larger display. You'll be able to pick one up later this month.

Archos Clipper: Another addition to the MP3 Player marketSure, Apple has the , Creative has the Zen Stone, Sansa has the Clip, and it appears that Archos has entered this mini-MP3 Player market with the Clipper. 

There is not much that can be said about this particular MP3 Player except what we have seen before in similar minimalist Portable Media Players (PMPs).  That is, a simple downloading of audio files via USB, and minimal buttons for less complications.  As usual, the memory is about 2GB, and the price is low at $30.

American Airlines to Test Personal Media Players on Flights

Archos on American Airlines

Hmmmm….we’re secretly beginning to wonder if someone at American Airlines has been reading Gear Live. If so, maybe our stories on iPod connectivity on airplanes and the Archos 704 were the inspiration for their latest venture. Soon, the airline will offer the 704 to transcontinental passengers, filled with 12 feature films, over a dozen hours of TV and news shows, MP3s, music videos, and audio channels. The PMP will be a free rental for first class folks, but coach-dwellers must pay a small fee. Hmph! Domestic flyers get some PMP love too, as flyers from LA to Chicago will get to sample the Archos 605, loaded with the same content as the 704, but will also include fun stuff for the kids. The test runs began May 1, and will last 4 months.

Archos Intros Latest Multimedia Player, Archos 704 WiFi

Archos 704 WiFi

You’ve gotta love Archos. For years their innovative multimedia players have played second fiddle to anything Apple releases—yet they continue to push the envelope. Case in point: the Archos 704 WiFi, which seems to do it ALL. Watch (or stream) video. Play music. View photos. Record and watch TV shows or movies (we loved this feature in a previous Archos player we owned). Plus, you can surf the web, thanks to the device’s 802.11g WiFi connection. Oh, and did we mention the 7” touch screen? Battery life is impressive too, with 25 hours for music playback and 5.5 hours for video. iPod, the gauntlet has been thrown down! Currently available for $550 USD by preorder, with a ship date of March 22.
