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.
