While the iPad may be getting all the attention in the tablet world, the ARCHOS 101 XS pad certainly has a few eye-catching details of its own. The ultra-thin and light design is aesthetically beautiful yet capable of handling day-to-day usage.

Not all consumers are a fan of the touchscreen movement quite yet, which is where additions like the magnetic coverboard come into play. The slim cover serves as a protective shield, dutiful dock and external keyboard. This multi-functional case doesn't take away from the sleek minimalist design of the ARCHOS 101 XS. Powered by the Android Ice Cream Sandwich software, the elegant tablet can access all the features of Google's operating platform.

Set to release November 2012, the ARCHOS 101 XS may give Apple a run for its money in the fast-paced tablet market.
