Affordable Archos Diamond Tab coming soon, LTE and Android Lollipop on board

Affrodable Arhcos Diamond Tab coming soon, LTE and Android Lollipop on board
Not long after announcing the Windows 10 Mobile-based 50 Cesium and the Lollipop-based Diamond S smartphones, Archos today unveiled a brand new tablet. Called Archos Diamond Tab, this is an affordable slate that offers LTE connectivity (in addition to dual band Wi-Fi), and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Presented as "a flagship product of the Archos brand", the Diamond Tab sports a 7.9-inch IPS display with 1536 x 2048 pixels, weighs 380 grams, and is 7.8mm-thin. The tablet is powered by a 64-bit, octa-core Mediatek MT8752 processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, further featuring 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 4800 mAh battery. On the back, the Archos Diamond Tab has a 5 MP camera, while its front-facing camera is a 2 MP one.

Archos will showcase the Diamond Tab next week at IFA 2015 in Berlin, alongside the Diamond S and 50 Cesium smartphones. The new tablet will be released in October, and it's going to cost £179 in the UK (which probably means it will be sold for around $250 in the US). Any buyers here?
