Archos 97 Carbon ICS tablet goes for sale for $250
The 9.7-inch tablet comes with a screen with the same resolution as the iPad, and with the pixel density of last year’s iPad 2 - 1024x768 pixels. It also packs 16GB of internal storage and 1GB of RAM, so it’s definitely far from being underpowered.
As a bonus, you get an HDMI-out port to stream content to an HD TV and a full-sized USB port to easily hook up external hard drives and other accessories. Both a rear and front facing camera are included which is nice.
What’s even better is that Archos right now is offering the tablet for $20 less than the original price at $230. That seems like quite a steal for such a device, doesn’t it? Hit the source link below to learn all the tiny details and order yours.

Pretty nice for a budget tablet.
I'd still rather have my Infinity though. ;D

Not really that great... You can easily find a Tegra 2 Tab (original GT10.1/ Original Transformer) for the same price.
And the Nexus 7 has just about the same res screen for less.

Please check the chipset that powers the tablet before saying something like "it’s definitely far from being underpowered".
It's actually a 1GHz CPU which name they don't even mention, not to comment they don't even tell you the GPU of the chip. So it can be laggy as hell with such a resolution and probaly an old Adreno 205 behind the GPU.
And for that price you can get the Google Nexus 7 with a 4 core CPU Tegra 3 and ULP GeForce with 12 cores. In my opinion there is nothing to decide there.
