This time around, Archos is debuting an all new tablet, affordable priced and packing both 3G and WiFi capabilities. The ARCHOS 80 Xenon is the company’s latest, priced at an affordable $200. Let’s take a look at the specs.

  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 quad-core CPU
  • 8-inch IPS 1024×768 resolution display

  • 4GB internal storage
  • 2MP rear/.3(?)MP front facing cameras

All in all, not a bad low-end tablet for a such a reasonable price. The Archos 80 Xenon will be available for purchase this June, and we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as it hits Amazon. Anyone thinking this could be a great tablet for the kiddos?

    ehh, good price, good CPU but lack of internal memory will kill it for people who need the space

    • guitarist5122

      Pretty sure the that’s what the sd card slot is for.

      • Shawn_Locke

        Since Android version 4.0 you can no longer install apps directly onto external SD memory.

  • John Toxworthy

    Might as well just get the N7.

    • Lennatron

      The Nexus 7 > every other $200 tablet.

  • Babs Oyed

    4GB internal storage? This thing is a piece of junk. If you can’t come up with a useful device why bother

  • scoter man1

    Lolwut? I think they missed the memo. There is this thing called the nexus 7… yeah it came out a year ago and it’s still better.

  • Michael Tran

    I believe they forgot to list the micro sd slot

    • Tony Lai

      It has microSD.

  • slicingtaco

    Seriously.. WTF Archos

    What happened to the Platinum series tablets you promised back in March?????????

    • Jeffrey Evans

      Still waiting for the Platinum 97, supposed to be a great tablet now that they were using the hi res screen.

  • Pedro

    will it support Google Play?

  • Derrick

    Wonder if it would work on tmobile

  • Tony Lai

    If only it was 1080p, it will get my money! lol

    • scoter man1

      It would probably barely churn 30fps if it was powering a 1080p screen.

  • Art Of Your Mind

    Still feel a 10 incher (e.g. TF101, TF300) a better tablet for doing tablet-y stuff. Reading PDF, Pulse news, browsing recipes, some Angry Birds. Going from 7 inch to 10 inch, or vice versa, you’ll see what I mean if you tried it.

    Also consider the brand new Icoo 7GS – 3G — with a 7″ HD Screen… available on line through T ablet S print- – this new 7 Inch Android tablet compares to the current $300 Nexus 7 3G edition, with most of the same features, but is priced about $200 and offers one of the latest Rockchip Quad Core processors, WiFi, an 1280X800 display, Bluetooth, Google Play store, and 3G HSPA+ with internet & phone call connection through any GSM network carrier, including AT&T and T-Mobile- worth reviewing
