Archos establishes itself in the tablet marketplace with the 97 Platinum HD 9.7" IPS Quad-Core tablet. This full-featured tablet includes amenities like a powerful 1.2 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM and an 8" capacitive multitouch display. The Retina-like 2048 x 1536, 4:3 ratio IPS display ensures wider viewing angles and less glare than non-IPS screens when outside, and the 5-point multitouch will help to make all those Android apps more fun to tinker with. The display is powered by an eight-core PowerVR SGX 544 graphics processor.

The 97 Platinum HD also features two integrated stereo speakers, a microphone, and a G-Sensor. It includes front- and rear-facing cameras (the 2MP rear-facing camera has auto-focus) for face-to-face social networking and even an HDMI output to hook your tablet up to a larger monitor or HDTV. A micro USB port allows for added peripherals.

No battery life is specified with this device - battery life is totally dependent on usage and performance criteria, so it will vary greatly by user. The tablet runs on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, with updates as they become available at the Archos website.

    Comments about Archos 97 Platinum HD 9.7" IPS Quad-Core Tablet:

    I returned this product back after a few days. First I wanted to play some movies on it. For some reason 2 movies played out of 10 loaded on micro SD card. All same format. Then I decided to just use it as an e-book, well guess what, the book is not showing up on the screen either. The book is about 1000 pages. First 100 pages worked very slow and the rest is not showing up at all. First it took about 15-20 seconds for my e-book to load, and then when I switch a page it lags. This is suppose to have been an HD tablet with a Quad Core. It is slower than my iPhone. When you scroll through the page on internet explorer you can see that it is not smooth at all. Would not recommend this product.

    Comments about Archos 97 Platinum HD 9.7" IPS Quad-Core Tablet:

    This tablet is basically a cheap version of the iPad2, as it has the same screen size, with the same definition ("Retina"). It is running Android.

    Pros: its affordability, and build construction feels good. The screen is beautiful.

    Cons: can be slow for a couple of minutes after coming back up. I had a problem with the power adapter but Archos technical support is efficient.
