French company Archos is ready to launch yet another tablet from the Arnova series, the 97 G4. The Arnova series stands for low cost and good components and this will be a 9.7 inch device with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board.


There’s also a Rockchip RK3066 processor inside and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the OS. The product is expected to hit the market in the second quarter of the year and from what I understood the first orders are already available. The 9.7 inch newcomer has already been tested at the FCC and it’s even available in some online stores for preorder.


Arnova 9 G4 will be sold as the Arnova 97 G4, that may pack an IPS screen with 1024 x 768 pixel resolution, a Cortex A9 processor at 1.6 GHz and Mali 400 GPU. There’s also 1 GB of RAM packed here, 8 GB of storage, a microSD card slot, a mini HDMI port and a microUSB 2.0 port. The list is completed by WiFi and a 8000 mAh battery. And now comes the price, which is 190 euros, but we expect a cut when the product hits the stores.

    This is a very outdated tablet and it’s not even launched.

    There is a similar product, looks the same, has same specs and it’s called Yarvik Xenta.
    What’s wrong with Archos? I mean, competition already has prepared 2048 pixels screens at same price.
