Archos to launch the 7.6mm thin G10 XS tablet

The slate will reportedly become available later this year with a starting price of €200 to €300 (depending on the model)

At an event in Paris yesterday, the French tech manufacturer Archos has announced it will be launching a new tablet, dubbed G10 XS that runs an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The short preview video (below) obviously focuses on the design of the slate, which according to a report from Ubergizmo, took the company three years to research and develop. 

Not much is known about the technical specifications of G10 XS at this stage. The reason is possibly because the maker is trying to get us all excited about the tablet’s slim design. Archos says this upcoming product will measure just 7.6mm (0.3-inch) at its thickest point making it about 0.1mm thinner than the Toshiba AT200, let alone the new iPad (9.39mm).

Another interesting feature of the XS model is that it will supposedly come with a QWERTY keyboard dock, which means it will be competing for your money alongside the Transformer Prime.
