Earlier tonight, we were in Paris (the home turf of Archos) to attend the unveiling of the Archos G10 XS, a new tablet that is built with “paper-thin” steel, rather than aluminum, to ensure the rigidity of the frame. Archos didn’t dive deep into the “specs” as it is trying to focus the public’s attention on the new design that took 3 years of R&D we’ve been told. To give you an idea of how thin, the G10 XS is, it’s about 7.6mm thick, which is much thinner than the new iPad (9.39mm). The Archos G10 XS also has a keyboard dock, which makes it a potential competitor of the Asus Transformer Prime in some ways. Finally, Archos has confirmed that this device would come with Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich for a price ranging from 200 to 300 Euros, depending on the model.
