Archos 97 Carbon Now Up For Purchase For $249.99, Single-core And $50 More

Archos unveiled the 97 Carbon earlier this month and now they’re finally bringing it to market at the low price of $249.99. Sounds like a deal, huh? Well, with it’s lackluster spec sheet and other competition on the market (*cough* Nexus 7 *cough*), it’s going to be a hard sell. Here’s a full rundown of the specs:

  • 1GHz single-core ARM Cortex A8 processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 21.8 ounces
  • 0.45″ thick
  • 9.7″ IPS display
  • 16GB of internal flash memory
  • microSD card slot
  • Google app access, including the Play Store
  • Android 4.0


The Archos 97 Carbon would have been a great buy for customers in the spring but now that the quad-core Nexus 7 is released at a lower price point, it really doesn’t have much of a chance. I mean, single-core? Anyways, are any of you interested in picking one of these up even though the Nexus 7 far out classes it?

Android Police, Archos
