overwhelmed by the current wave of 7-inch tablets flooding into the market? we guess it is time to shift the spotlight back to the size that started it all: 10-inch and Archos has just one that will be joining the tablet party and it is called the Archos 97 Titanium HD Tablet. on the look department, do not expect anything out of the ordinary (unless it is anything but rectangular or perhaps embark on a bezel-less route) but as for the specs, worthy mentions include a 1.6GHz dual-core A9 processor with 1GB of RAM, Mali 400 quad-core GPU, 8GB of onboard storage – expandable up to 64GB via micro SD card slot, a 9.7-inch 10-point capacitive multitouch IPS panel with 2,048 by 1,536 pixels (equivalent to Apple’s fourth-gen iPad), a 5.0-megapixel main shooter with autofocus, a 2.0-megapixel front-facing camera, stereo speakers, and the usual stuff like built-in microphone, WiFi (naturally), G-sensor and the likes. out of the box, it will come installed with Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and the real kicker for Android purists, it is reportedly going to be on stock Android OS. i.e. no fancy manufacturer’s UI to hamper your true Android experience. really? well. that sounds like fun to us and also sounds like a serious competition for the iPad, though no word on the pricing or availability but judging from Archos previous offerings, it shouldn’t cost an arm or a leg. head past the jump for a few more look.
