French electronics company Archos has released dozens of low-cost Android tablets over the past few years. Now the company’s launching its first budget Windows tablet.
The company unveiled plans to launch an 8 inch Windows tablet called the Archos 80 Cesium this summer. It’s not available for purchase yet, but Archos has posted more details about the Archos 80 Cesium on its website.
The tablet features an 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, an Intel Atom Z3735G Bay Trail quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
It has a microSD card slot for up to 128GB of removable storage, features a 2MP rear camera and 0.3Mp front-facing camera, a 4000mAh battery, WiFi and Bluetooth and a micro HDMI port.
Like many other small Windows tablets, the Archos 80 Cesium comes with a 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 which means you can run Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and other Office apps and use up to 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage.
When Archos first introduced the tablet in August the company said it’d be coming soon for $149. But now that HP, Toshiba, and a number of other companies offer Windows tablets for $100 (or less), I wouldn’t be surprised if Archos decides to cuts the price a bit before selling the Archos 80 Cesium.
