Known tablet maker Archos’ brand-new Archos A10 has reportedly crossed Federal Communications Commission (FCC) successfully – as reported by Wireless Goodness. The 10.1-inch tablet is the almost same as the Android 2.2 enabled Archos 101 internet tablet unveiled by the company in the earlier half of this September, barring a few minor updates.

The A10 sports a 10.1-inch TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, Archos also throws in 16GB of flash memory. Processing duties would be taken care of by a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor. This RISC processor from the British company ARM Holdings has become quite famous among the Smartphone and tablet manufacturers being one of the first reduced instruction set computer processors to have a massive 1GB processing memory.  

The device would also come bundled with a VGA webcam, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a USB port and HDMI output.

Pricing wise the Archos A10 provides a reason to rejoice with its 16GB version being cheaper than the 16GB Wi-Fi only Apple iPad, which is $150 dearer than the former. Archos is planning to strategically position itself in the market with the Archos A10 entering the market at $300 for the 8GB version and $350 for double the memory i.e. 16GB. Watch out for this latest offering from Archos, coming up soon.
