The product will be available in a few weeks and it comes with an IPS display panel with a 1024 x 768 pixel resolution and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the OS.

Specs also include 4 GB of storage, a microSD card slot with support for cards up to 64 GB in size, GPS, a front camera and a 2 megapixel rear camera.
On the connectivity side, we get WiFi, Bluetooth and also GSM and WCDMA. The Jelly Bean experience is stock here and the Play Store is present as well. Archos also brings media center applications for music and video. The price tag of the device is $199.99 and it’s coming in June.
