In 2011, Archos put out two lines of tablets: the low end (and lesser relevant) Arnova line, and the higher-end G9 series - its first to receive Google certification (which is required in order to offer the Play Store). This year, we can expect a bit more rearranging from the company, as it will offer three lines of tablet: the low-end Arnova, mid-range Elements, and high-end G10xs series.

The company today unveiled some details about the G10xs series, revealing that it will be intro-ing three new high-end devices this year, including 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch models. All of the aforementioned models are said to come in at a shockingly thin 7.6mm and include an optional Transformer-like keyboard dock, as well as the all-important Google certification.

There's no word on when this new line will ship, but they should be available in both the U.S. and Europe.

    I can't say I've ever wanted an Archos Tablet unless it was free. The few I've played with feel cheap, even the G9. I have low hopes for this one too.

    Has to be cheaper than that Asus TF101, with the dock. And bring some reasonable specs without the bloat and custom skins. Oh wait, I should just get the Asus!

      Bloat? Never heard Archos accused of that before... it's not like they normally add very much at all - except things like support for VOB playback and 5.1 audio, which is usually considered a selling point...

    I have had an Archos tablet and a Motorola XOOM. The only difference between the two is the build quality. If they improve on this then they will be on for a winner.

    You're mixing things up a bit. The Archos Elements comes in 7" $129, 8" $149 and 10.1" $199, Archos has not yet announced the sizes for the G10 Series to be released later.
