PLEASE DON'T ORDER THIS. IT WAS A DEBENHAMS MISTAKE AND IS ACTUALLY THE 7" VERSION NOT 9.7"

APOLOGIES TO ANYONE WHO ORDERED.

Cheapest I can find this anywhere else is £129.99 at PC World.

The 8 GB Archos 97 Cobalt 9.7" Tablet is a thing of beauty, with a large high-quality screen, active processor and a design that feels great in your hands.

Handy Android

Feel the easy-to-use benefits of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean platform, an operating system that's both gorgeously designed and ideal for tablet use. Revel in a complete web experience that's great for on-the-go web browsing, communicating and using apps.

With its Android OS, the Archos 97 Cobalt allows you full access to the Google Play store to download Android apps, books, magazines, music, TV shows and movies. More than 600,000 apps and games, millions of sounds, thousands of films and shows and a plethora of written publications await – there's something for everyone.

Leading Google apps include Gmail, Google Talk and Google+, as well as the highly practical Google Maps, Google Currents and more. Android 4.1 makes multitasking easier and better, allowing you to open and alternate apps with the flick of a finger – or close them with a simple swipe.

Dual processing power

The Archos 97 Cobalt 9.7" Tablet is powered by an impressive 1.6 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex™ A9 processor that allows you to be more productive and stay seamlessly entertained.

Its quad-core MALI-400 graphics processor lets you watch films, view photos and browse the Internet in stunningly clear and colourful style, plus it's got enough muscle to run those exciting 3D games in their full glory.

Two integrated stereo speakers provide quality audio that can be appreciated out loud or over headphones to perfectly complement all your media.

The view from here

It's always a pleasure to wander through the web, catch a movie or play with games and apps on the tablet's 9.7” HD screen. With multi-touch capabilities, it's a constant pleasure to effortlessly gesture your way through apps to get results in double quick time.

Both front and back cameras have been installed on the Archos Cobalt 97, so you can capture brilliant moments with friends and family or once-in-a-lifetime events in all their glory. Chat online while you're on the go using this great built-in imaging facility and the built-in microphone.

Making connections with your tablet

As well as allowing you to connect with the world thanks to its 802.11 b/g/n WiFi facility, the tablet is equipped with a microSD slot to read media recorded on other devices, and there's a USB 2.0 port for simple, versatile peripheral hook-ups.

Connect the Archos 97 Cobalt Tablet to a compatible TV or monitor using the HDMI interface, providing a great way to share and enjoy content of all kinds in a larger format.

Consider mobile broadband

If you love to travel or live in an area with poor internet connectivity, mobile broadband is the best way to get online.

Mobile broadband gives you a hot spot in your pocket by connecting to the internet via 3G of 4G - similar to the way your smartphone does when you're away from home.

Ask one of our knowledgeable colleagues in store for more information about how to get your tablet online when you're out and about.

EDIT: This has been confirmed as the 9.7" screen by a HUKD member who has emailed Debenhams for clarification.

This is a 7 inch tab.

yes 7 inch not 9.7

Take care and read all the details the OP has posted, as this is a 7" tablet. A bit misleading that they call it Cobalt 9.7"

Description on site must be wrong all ARCHOS product have the size in the name cobalt 80 is 8" cobalt 97 is 9.7" etc

Looking in archos website this looks to have a 9.7" display at 1024x768

Conflicting reports all round. I actually saw it in Dixons yesterday, but have never had a tablet before, so didn't really notice if it was 7" or 9.7"

This says it's 9.7"

Been posted on here before, with one user giving a good review.

The Dixons description seems to suggest it's 9.7" as well as the Archos website

Nope. Pretty sure it's 9.7"

Look at the pics of other models next to it on the Archos website. It's a lot bigger than the 8"

Not 3G but can use a 3/4g dongle plugging into the USB port. Or off course as with any Android device just tether it with to your android phone.

It's not the 70. I don't know why you persist with this other than for being a troll. Look at the pic I posted above.

Risk it if you want to but Debenhams Plus will send you the 70 in my opinion.

Clarification needed from Debenhams about this.
Too much confliction in description/photo on their website as to whether they are actually selling the 7" or 9.7"

That is possible of course, but their description is pretty explicit as to what they're selling. Though it is extrememly cheap compared to other shops.

Been onto Debs its def the 9.7 that's for sale and you will receive if you buy, and they are going to update the photo

That's good info and it should be in White according to other websites.
At least they have confirmed their mistake.

Going to place an order.Great price and thanks for doing that.


Design

The ARCHOS 97 Cobalt features a 9.7 inch (1024 x 768 pixel) screen so your Android experience will never look better.

Nice, may get one for mum.

This was going so well until I noticed it was made by Archos.

Should be hotter!

Tfs op!! Hope its still in stock after an hr..

So this is a seven inch just checked the specs

Archos

^ different product. that review is for the 'Titanium' variant, a (significantly) superior version - not this one.

also, this one's screen will be horrible - 122 PPI
