It is 19.7x13.4x.7cm and weights 315grams. The viewable screen is 12x16cm. The unit is cream in colour with a silver back. An Android Tablet with an added plus it can be used when Wi-Fi is not available so it can be a phone or with the correct service with Mobile Data. So what does this recent offering from French company have to offer the user?

If you’re looking for Apple styling but with a much lower price-tag, the Archos 79 Xenon could be the slate for you, but for the price, you’d be better served by the higher-res and higher-spec Nexus 7, which is just £30 more and nets you double the storage, a better screen and faster guts under the hood. If you want a true iPad mini, you’ll have to fork out the premium for it. The 79 Xenon is a nice attempt by Archos to imitate Apple’s tiny tablet, but it just doesn’t measure up - and we’d much rather see an original effort rather than a copycat.
