Hi,
i want to buy this new Archos tablet, but i need to know if there are these features:

-GPS embedded
-3g module embedded (or can be plugged with 3g archos usb stick)
-IPS display
-usb connection (to connect pc)
-micro sd card reader
-android 4.x

If not, is there an archos tablet that has all these requirements?
Thanks

You can find the specs here:

The Platinum series does have IPS display, Micro USB 2.0 (yes, it can connect to your computer), a MicroSD slot, and Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Its not a phone, so it has no 3g nor GPS in and of itself (it comes with WiFi support). You can link it to your phone, or a standalone GPS device to use those features.

If you want to make a backward step, the gen 9 devices had 3g support - the gen 10 devices are far superior though and for the sake of 3g, which is easily overcome with mifi or even wifi or bt tethering to your phone - and maybe 3g support will be added by firmware update, it's only a case of adding drivers for the popular makes of dongle, the higher end devices have embedded gps chips, and they seam to work well enough.

The XS's have GPS and come with Android 4.0/4.1. Like paulus said if you want 3g you should consider tethering it to a phone. If you go looking for a straight 3g tablet you'll be limited to what your cell carrier offers, and you'll be paying an obnoxious monthly fee.
