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.
By looking at the pictures of the back, we come to know it will be one of the Archos tablets to feature a camera on the back.
On the right side of the tablet, the volume and home buttons are located.
