After sailing on the winds of the low-cost TN-display tablet for a while, Archos has decided to launch its own budget imitation iPad. It's a 9.7" slate with a 4:3 IPS display, like so many you see nowadays sprouting up on retailer websites in unfamiliar ad banners. The Archos 97 Carbon is the entry-level/mid-range tablet in the French company's Elements series. Unlike Archos' G9 Turbo series, with its dual-core 1.5 GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4460, the 97 Carbon decidedly does not feature a popular, new processor. Here, hidden beneath the 1024 x 768 IPS panel, we have a "lowly" single-core processor clocked at 1 GHz, using ARM Cortex A8 technology. It does, however, have 1 GB of RAM, which isn't nothing, plus 16 GB of storage. Like most of Archos' devices, it has a potpourri of ports: mini-HDMI, USB 2.0 Host, 3.5 mm audio, micro-USB and the power supply. It has a front-facing VGA webcam, a rear-facing 2-Megapixel photo/video sensor and Wi-Fi b/g/n, but no Bluetooth. The Archos 97 Carbon will be going on sale at the recommended price of £219. At first glance, the 97 Carbon looks quite fetching. At 9.7" with a 4:3 aspect ratio, it has more or less copied the dimensions of the ever-relevant iPad.
