    Archos has been on a roll lately trying hard to break out of their budget-friendly image. They recently announced their new and fairly intriguing Archos 101 XS, with the fairly innovative Coverboard idea (a keyboard dock that duals as a hard cover for the display). Today we got wind of a new tablet they are planning for early next year. It's called the Archos 116 XS, and it will be an 11.6-inch Full HD display (1920x1200). According to the intel, the tablet will come from the factory with Android 4.1/Jelly Bean (which is unsurprising considering it won't come out until next year). It too will come with the clever Coverboard concept that Archos hopes will differentiate them from the crowd. The company plans to keep the pricing on the tablet below €500. We will keep an eye out in the future for this one.

    Additionally, the source of this info also shared the pricing details on the rest of the XS Series of tablets from Archos. Here's a quote with more details,

    Share if you are intrigued by these new designs. Do you think Archos will be able to claw their way upwards and elevate themselves beyond their current status?
