Archos is hoping to challenge the success of Asus with its Transformer line of Android tablets that caught consumer attention thanks to an innovative keyboard dock. The company posted a teaser image of its slim G10XS tablet stating that the launch will be happening in just 3 short weeks. The social media teaser did not include any specifics about the device.
According to Engadget, we can expect to see Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich onboard for the launch, along with microSD, mini HDMI, and a keyboard dock connector for an optional keyboard dock similar to Asus’ Transformer tablets.
In addition with competing with Asus upon launch, the Archos G10XS will also be competing with the recently launched Lenovo IdeaPad tablet that has the same keyboard dock accessory. When Windows 8 and Windows RT launches later this year, a number of manufacturers have committed to that OS with designs shown at the Computex trade show with a slate-based design and an optional keyboard docking accessory.
