French tablet maker Archos has added a few new tablets to its Titanium range, and for the first time the company has revealed prices, as well as exactly what it is that earns a tablet the right to be called Titanium.
All 4 of the company’s new Titanium tablets have IPS displays, 1.6 GHz Rockchip RK3066 dual core processors, ARM Mali 400 quad-core graphics, and aluminum cases. They’re also Google certified devices running Android 4.1 and featuring the Play Store as well as Archos Media Center software.
Here’s a run-down of the new tablet family:
- Archos 70 Titanium 7 inch tablet – $119
- Archos 80 Titanium 8 inch tablet – $169
- Archos 101 Titanium 10.1 inch tablet – $199
- Archos 97 Titanium HD 9.7 inch tablet with 2048 x 1536 pixel display – $249
The new tablets aren’t live on the Archos website yet, but the fact that the press release only spells out the resolution for the HD model suggests that the rest feature 1280 x 800 or 1024 x 600 pixel displays.
All told, the new models have an iPad-like look and feel, and look a lot like the new quad-core Platinum tablets Archos is showing off this week.
At $249, the Archos 97 Titanium HD is one of the cheapest tablets I’ve seen to feature an iPad-like display resolution. The Archos 70 Titanium also looks like an interesting alternative to a Kindle Fire or NOOK Tablet for someone looking for an inexpensive device that offers the full Android experience rather than a custom UI and a proprietary app store.
