Today saw the launch announcement for the new XS range of Android tablets from Archos. We had some hands-on with the 101 XS tablet and accessories.

The 101 XS Tablet

The 101 XS tablet has a 10.1 inch screen which is very clear, with a resolution of 1280 x 800. It also has a microSD slot that currently supports up to 64GB of expansion but Archos tell us it will also support up to 128GB too. It also has HDMI out for connecting to a television or monitor, and the quality is excellent (the presentation we were given was using this feature). There are also all the usual ports you would expect.

The Coverboard

The Coverboard is light-weight and easy to use and is only 5mm thick. The keyboard is very nice and easy to use and it feels very natural. It is a proper Android keyboard with Android shortcut keys rather than just a keyboard Archos has added. It is magnetic and feels very sturdy and secure.
