Perhaps, you are unfamilier with Archos's tablets, but you must know Archos's media player very mush. It was established in 1988 by Henri Crohas. So far, Archos has brought lots of portable media players and data storage devices for us. Actually, Archos had released its tablets before. unfortunately, none of them has really taken off.

G10 XS runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It will be a keyboard dock that will make the tablet-keyboard combination look very much like the Asus Eee Pad Slider. Even with the keyboard dock attached the tablet will still only be 12mm thick. Pricing for the G10 XS is estimated to be around 199€ or $260 USD.

7 and 8 inch variants will also become available that will reportedly have the same 7.6 waistline and should be a available for 129€ and 149€ respectively.

Except the above data, there is currently no official word on availability. Even we don't know other more details about this thin tablet, we can also find a good way to view powerpoint on Archos G10 XS, an android tablet, like Asus Transformer Prime.
