If you’re in the market for a new tablet then you might want to take a look at the new Archos 97b which has been announced today. The tablet features a 9.7 inch IPS LCD and will be driven by a 1.6 GHz Dual Core CPU / Quad Core GPU.
Admittedly the tablet is priced a little high at £199.99 but in honesty a dual core cpu and quad-core gpu on a device which has an IPS screen is perfect for today’s modern Android games. Of course all that is dependent on the build quality which seems to plague Archos more than frequently.
It’s also worth noting that this is exclusive to Dixon’s and cannot be bought anywhere else just now.
