Archos announce the latest devices in their Elements range: The 80 Xenon!

   It was only a couple of days ago that Archos were announcing their beautiful ChefPad for those of you who love to cook, but today they're back with another tablet, this time it's a device which slots into their elements range!
   The Archos 80 Xenon is an 8" tablet with a surprisingly large amount going for it. It's 8" display has a 1024x768p resolution and it's an IPS display which should offer good viewing angles. That display will be powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and it'll be running on a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.2Ghz which is paired with an Andreno 203 GPU! On the memory front there's 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage which thankfully is microSD expandable and
there's support for cards up to 64GB in size on this device. There's two cameras here; the rear one is 2MP and the front one Archos didn't assign a resolution to, but they did say that it was a 'webcam' so we would assume that it's VGA!

   One extra bonus which this tablet has is that there is both WiFi and 3G connectivity options on board, which means that you can plug in a SIM card and get your data on 3G assuming your carrier uses the 2100 MHz band and there's 2G connectivity on 850/950/1800 and 1900 which means you'll get 2G in basically every place you go!

   The real highlight here though is that all of this can be yours for very reasonable prices. Depending on where you are this will set you back either €169,99, £159.99 or $199.99, all of which are great prices and it puts the device right into a sweet spot just below the £180 Asus ask for their FonePad which has a lesser processor, but slightly better screen!
