Archos is the French answer to low-cost consumer electronics makers like Coby, focusing on media players and tablets. The coming FamilyPad is a 13.3-inch (1280 x 800) Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet with a single-core 1 GHz Cortex-A8 chip, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB of storage and front and rear 2 megapixel cameras. Weak specs in this day and age, but expect a sub-$200 price to entice customers at the Walmart.

Fujitsu is the Lenovo of Europe - a firm enterprise vendor who never stopped making convertible tablet/laptops. Their Stylistic Q702 is their entry in the high-end Windows 8 category - 11.6-inch (1920x1080) screen and a Core i3/i5 chip in a 1.88 lb. package. Like the Lenovo X230T, the Stylistic comes with a bunch of enterprise management and security features, and its touchscreen supports 10-point multitouch as well as a stylus. Expect enterprise-type prices.
