Archos has unveiled their new Gen 10 XS tablet line that includes three models: the 80 XS, 97 XS, and the 10-inch 101 XS that they previewed earlier this month. The tablet’s form factor will be the defining feature for the new line, with all three featuring slim and light frames that’s designed to pair with a keyboard that works as the tablet’s cover and stand.
The Archos 101 XS will be released first in September, offering a 10.1-inch screen with a 1280 x 800 resolution, an OMAP 4470 processor, PowerVR SGX544 graphics, and 16GB of built-in storage wrapped inside a 0.31-inch thick, 21-ounce frame. Other features include Wi-fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a microSD card slot, as well as micro USB and Mini HDMI ports.
The new Coverboard accessory is a 0.2-inch thick cover that sports a matching keyboard on the flipside. Alignment and attachment with the tablet is done with built-in magnets, while a magnetic kickstand that unfolds from the back to hold the slate up. Other accessories for the Gen 10 XS line include a speaker dock, and a docking station that adds USB and audio ports.
The 101 XS will ship running on Android 4.0, with an update to Android 4.1 coming later this year. Priced at $400, the tablet will also come preinstalled with OfficeSuite Pro 6. Archos didn’t release details for the 80 XS and 97 XS, but they’re set to follow in late-2012.
