Was just wondering about this myself after reading this article:
https://mashable.com/2012/07/05/archos-carbon/

The article claims it will be available "later this month for $249.99".

I've had one for about 24 hours now, and I'm pretty disappointed. Had a G9 101 which broke, so bought this with 25% discount from Archos (I was on a pretty tight budget too).
So far, it's rubbish. It lacks the Archos media player which has swayed me in the past, and which streamed media off my home network so effectively. There are loads of apps which aren't compatible with the device, including a few Google ones (Chrome, Google Sky Map) and the main Twitter app, and also you can't set it to run unknown sources. There are some real restrictions with this machine. I'm kinda regretting buying it now, should've just saved a bit more and bought a better model.
