Thin, light and strong
ARCHOS Internet Tablets are the thinnest and lightest around thanks to a patented process of plastic overmolding. Through the binding of high-tensile strength stainless steel and an injected plastic enclosure, Archos Internet tablets have a stylish look that doesn't compromise between weight and strength.
