Archos attempts to strengthen its Element series of tablets by announcing the 97 Titanium HD. The 9.7-inch tablet will ship with Android 4.1 and a promising 2,048x1,536-pixel IPS display. This matches the resolution of the current-generation iPad.

The tablet houses a 1.6GHz dual-core A9 processor, a quad-core Mali 400 MP4 GPU, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. Other features include a microSD expansion slot, Micro-USB port, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

The Archos 97 Titanium pricing is set at $249 but a release date has yet to be announced. Archos has yet to release some of its previously announced tablets that were scheduled for a 2012 release, so look back to CNET for updates on the 97 Titanium HD and other Archos tablet news.
