The ARCHOS 97 Carbon gets knocked down to a “still expensive”, $250!
When I first saw this device a while back, I was interested. It was a good tablet for a beginner, or someone who did not need a lot of power. But when I scrolled down to the, “Add to cart” option, I laughed hysterically.
The ARCHOS 97 Carbon is the same ballpark as an iPhone in my opinion. Mediocre specs, for a drastic price. With a recent web store update, ARCHOS has knocked the tablet down to $250, which is still a lot for what you “actually get”.
Here are some of the specs:
A 1GHz single-core processor 1GB of RAM 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich 16GB of internal memory, with SD card expansion up to 48GB And basic Google apps
For this price, you can snatch the popular Nexus 7, with a quad-core processor! I guess the days of cheap tablets from the company are over, at least for now. But you do get a USB port and SD card compatibly on the 97 Carbon.
