Archos announces Titanium line of Android tablets

Our friends at Archos decided to wait a bit after all the CES madness has died down to announce its latest line of tablets. The Archos Titanium line comes in 7 inch, 8 inch, 9.7 inch and 10.1 inch flavors for $119, $169, $249 and $199, respectively. The 9.7 inch version costs more than the 10.1 inch version due to its very nice 2048 x 1536 resolution. The resolution for the other versions weren’t mentioned just yet, but all of them will be HD IPS displays

All the tablets feature a 1.6GHz dual-core processor with a quad-core GPU backing that up. These things are made out of metal, but they’re not necessarily made out of titanium. The aluminum chassis it comes in doesn’t sound like a bad deal, though, and should make for a nice weight and sleek design. As with most of the devices we’ve seen this week Archos hasn’t announced a release date just yet, but we would be surprised to see it come any later than the first half of the year. Read on for full press details.

      • guitarist5122

        how so? because i think they are trying to make tablets that look like ipads?

      • Victor Corthals

        they released their first tablets before the ipad and the tablets are totaly different !

  • Jim__R

    I’ve read some negative comments re Archos and updates. Is lack of updates the experience of any Archoes owners here?

  • Lennatron

    Archos seems to be coming out with decent tablets at great prices. Spec sheets only tell half the story but this seems like something to keep your eyes on.

    • shonangreg

      Specs — and updates and openness. Any manufacturer of tablets that doesn’t build a reputation for either releasing timely updates or for putting out open systems that can be updated easily is not going to be able to keep selling tablets.

      Phones are more limited this way, but there is no need to deal with crippled, protected tablets or makers who don’t keep up with updates.

  • Frans-Peter van der Leur

    My old Archos 70 tablet has never seen any tablet software, so never an Archos again for me.

    • malcmilli

      lol what do you expect at that price

  • Daniel Tiberius

    I wonder if they’ll make these with hard disks in them like they used to.

  • Hrethgir

    Looks like another decent tablet for the money like the Polaroid ones announced at CES.

  • Lamas Dunn

    Sounds like Rockchip RK3066 Tablets. I hope so.

  • Al

    Archos announce a new tablet every week, I’m surprised they’re still in business, do people actually buy ’em?

  • smithj33

  • phinn
