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.
