The French manufacturer Archos has added a new tablet, called 80 Cobalt, to its Elements Series of portable devices. Apparently, the slate PC is based on an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, which is a bit obsolete given that there’s Jelly Bean and that the upcoming Nexus 10 runs on an even newer Android 4.2 OS.  The Igny-headquartered company has yet to disclose pricing details or an official release date.

According to Archos, users will be provided with an 8-inch LED-backlit capacitive multitouch-enabled display (4:3 aspect ratio) that has a native resolution of 1024-by-768 pixels. Furthermore, the tablet is powered by an unspecified Dual-Core central processing unit clocked at 1.6GHz and a Quad-Core graphics card.

Beneath the screen, the mobile device offers 1GB of RAM and 8GB of flash memory that is expandable by up to 64GB through the built-in micro SDHC card reader slot. In addition, the Cobalt reportedly measures 11.5mm (0.45-in) at its thickest point, weighs 470g and is equipped with a Wireless LAN module, one USB 2.0 port and two integrated cameras- a 0.3MP front-facing web camera for video conferencing and a 2MP shooter on the back.

Other features supposedly include a G-sensor, built-in mono speaker, 3.5mm audio jack and a Full HD (1080p) video playback capability.
