Those worried that Archos hasn't introduced a line of low-cost Android tablets in a while have reason to breathe a collective sigh of relief. The company's gearing up for the launch of its "Elements" series, beginning with this month's release of the 97 Carbon. No chipmunks this time out, sadly, but the Ice Cream Sandwich slate does sport a 9.7-inch IPS display, a 1GHz processor, HDMI out and a full-sized USB port. Also on-board are two cameras, 16GB of storage and a microSD slot, packed into a 0.45-inch thick aluminum body. The 97 Carbon runs $230 to $250. Archos is promising more entries in the "entry-level" Elements lineup, measuring seven, eight and 9.7 inches. Press info on this particular model can be found after the break.
