FRENCH ELECTRONICS SELLER Archos has unveiled another line of Android tablets with metal themed branding, dubbed the Platinum range.

Arriving in 8in, 9.7in and 11.6in sizes, each tablet in the Platinum line features an HD IPS display with a capacitive multi-touch screen, a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU along with an eight-core GPU, 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

Powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the tablets unsurprisingly aren't made from platinum, but instead feature aluminium casings with front and back cameras and miniHDMI and microSD ports.

Archos claims that each tablet delivers "true vivid colours, sharper text and amazingly fast performance".

The 8in model, named the Archos 80 Platinum features a 1024x768 resolution display, measures 200x153x9.8mm, weighs 480g and is available at the firm's website for £179.

The a 9.7in tablet, the Archos 97 Platinum HD, features a 2048x1536 resolution screen, which the firm says is comparable to the Retina display found in the iPad "but 40 percent less expensive". Measuring 242x187x9.8mm and weighing 670g, the tablet is also available from the website and costs £249.

The largest tablet in the range, the Archos 116 Platinum, won't be available until April but when it does arrive, it will bring a 1920x1080 resolution IPS display, a feature that Archos claims is "unlike anything currently on the market". Measurements and weight are yet to be revealed by Archos for the largest of the three Platinum tablets, but we do know it will set you back £299. µ
