CES: FRENCH TABLET MAKER Archos unveiled a line of Android tablets at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas today, dubbed the Titanium range.
Arriving in 7in, 8in, 9.7in and 10.1in sizes, the Titanium line will feature four tablets, each with a dual-core 1.6 GHz CPU coupled with a quad-core graphics processor and 1GB of DDR3 RAM.
Android fans will be pleased to hear that the Titanium line will run Google's latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system.
Detailed specifications for these devices are so far thin on the ground, but we know that the tablets will all have a "slim" aluminium chassis with an HD IPS capacitive multi-touch screen along with at least 8GB of flash storage.
Connectivity options include a microUSB 2.0 port to connect external devices, a 3.5mm audio jack, a microSD slot supporting cards up to 64GB and an HDMI output port. WiFi connectivity will be built in as standard. Each tablet also features front and rear-facing cameras.
Archos has yet to announce further details as to when the line will reach the UK, but said the Archos 70 Titanium will be priced at £99, the Archos 80 Titanium £149 and the Archos 101 Titanium £169. The Archos 97 Titanium HD 9.7in model is unlike the rest in the range, and is more expensive due to its touchscreen's 2048x1536 resolution. It will be priced at £199, and aims to be "an alternative to the new iPad for half the price". µ
