Archos 97 Carbon leaked out (ARM Cortex A8@1Ghz, 9.7″ IPS screen, HDMI, dual camera, Google Play)

While during the last weeks, some of the Archos Elements tablets passed the FCC, by the conference pictures, we knew that more of them were going to be released. And today we got pictures and specs of another element tablet, named 97 Carbon. Actually, it looks a lot like the Arnova 9 G3 which has been released a month ago, but with addition of official Google Apps support, a back camera and HDMI-output.
