Archos expects to introduce the 8 inch Archos 80 Xenon
tablet in June, priced at $199. The 8 inch screen offers resolution of 1024 x 768 and the tablet is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor under the hood. While 1GB of RAM is on board, the slate has just 4GB of native storage although that can be expanded by use of the 64GB capacity microSD slot. There is a 2MP rear-facing camera with a front-facing 'webcam' for self-portraits and video chat.
The Archos 80 Xenon is 11.3mm thick, weighs 440 grams and features 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity. No, there is no LTE connectivity
on this tablet. What there is though, is Android 4.1 pre-installed out of the box which means it will run smoothly thanks to Project Butter, give usable information with Google Now, and let users answer emails and view pictures and video directly from the notification screen with actionable notifications.
