Archos 80 Xenon Android Tablet: Unlocked 3G Wireless & GPS on the Cheap

by Shane McGlaun

Archos has been making Android tablets for almost as long as Android has been around. The company has unveiled a new tablet called the Archos 80 Xenon that promises some nice features in a very portable form factor.


Archos says the $200 tablet was specifically designed for on-the-go access and experience and offers integrated Wi-Fi and 3G mobile network support. The tablet is designed to accept any 3G SIM card with no provider restrictions. That should mean you can pop your SIM card out of your existing device and plug it right into this tablet to get online while traveling.


The Android 4.1-based tablet features a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon CPU and and 1GB system memory. Its eight-inch multitouch IPS screen has a resolution of 1024 x 768. The tablet also comes preloaded with media center applications and can run most of the popular Android applications out there. Internal storage is 4 GB and a MicroSD memory card slot is available for expansion up to 64GB. The tablet also has integrated GPS/A-GPS capability with full support for Google Maps.

    One similar Android tablet with 3G HSPA+ and most of the same features is the new Ramos X10 Pro Mini-3G which is priced at $210 through a site called Tablet Sprint – however, the new Ramos model offers a few advantages, including 16GB Memory and two high quality cameras – a 2 MegaPixel Webcam and 5 MegaPixel rear camera with autofocus. The Ramos X10 Pro Mini also features one of the newest Quad-core processors with better graphics (MT8389 A7 1.2 GHZ / PowerVR SGX544 MP2 GPU) 1GB DDR3; along with built in GPS that works great with use of the new Google Maps App; and also features Bluetooth, WiFi, MicroSD, a 4200 mAh Battery with 6+ hours of use, and HDMI. Internet connection other than WiFi is the biggest advantage to 3G capable devices, and the Ramos tablet provides both internet and telephone calling through any GSM carrier, including AT&T & T-Mobile in the U.S — the online site Tablet Sprint also offers a few other new Android tablets worth checking out that launch over the next few weeks–
