Android is easily the most dominant operating system in the world of smartphones, but outside of the Samsung Galaxy range Android tablets haven't caught on in the same way. Their big advantage over Apple's iPad tablet is the price, but there isn't much else about the Archos 101 Oxygen that might take your breath away.

Following on from the eight-core Archos 50C Oxygen smartphone revealed earlier this year, the 101 Oxygen tablet hits shop shelves in October. It will cost €200 in Europe, £200 in the UK, and $250 in the US.

Movies and games have room to breathe thanks to a 10-inch, full HD 1080p screen. The 101 Oxygen is powered by an ARM Cortex A17 quad-core processor backed with 1.5GB of RAM. There's 16GB of internal storage to save your music, movies, photos and more.

The 101 Oxygen Android table arrives in the Archos lineup along with the new 50b Platinum Android smartphone , the 40 Cesium Windows Phone smartphone and the 80 Cesium Windows tablet.

These new phones and tablets make their debut at IFA, the Berlin-based technology trade show, where we'll be on hand to bring you the first pictures, videos and hands-on first impressions of the coolest kit heading your way in the next few months.
