Archos Titanium, the power of four Android tablets

With CES 2013 drawing to a close for another year manufacturers in the mobile world haven’t announced any big showcase devices, which will probably have to wait until next month’s MWC event in Spain. There have been some products though such as the four new Android tablets in the Archos Titanium range that we have for you today.

The company has revealed its new line up that include tablets starting at 7-inch and going all the way up to 10.1-inches, with 8-inch and 9.7-inch HD devices in-between. The four devices all feature a high definition IPS touchscreen display using a 1.6GHZ processor with a quad core graphics chip, and they are running on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.

Most of the differences between the four models are simply the screen size and it seems the company is trying to please everyone by offering a variety of sizes. The company doesn’t give too much away regarding full specifications for the tablets, but does reveal that the 9.7-inch model has a pixel resolution of 2048 x 1536.

The company has revealed the pricing for the new Android range though and they are certainly competitive, as the Archos 70 titanium is priced at £99, $119, €119, and the Archos 80 titanium will cost you £149, $169, and €169.

At the top of the new range is the Archos 101 that will cost £169, $199, €199, and the most expensive option is the Archos 97 titanium HD that is priced at £199, $249, and €249. The company is pushing this model as an alternative to the new iPad except costing half the price.

The Android platform certainly has a vast array of tablet PCs on offer to consumers now, and it’s never a bad thing being spoilt for choice especially as it can also keep prices down as well.

At the time of writing the company has not revealed when the new line up will be available for consumers to actually purchase, but the range certainly looks good on paper especially for the budget conscious.

We have found a video from Engadget that you can see below with some hands on that reveal some more information about three of the range that includes expandable storage via microSD card, and some of the other ports include HDMI. Check the video out for yourself and tell us what you think about the new range of Android tablets from Archos.

    One other Android tablet maker worth a look at in 2013 is Ainol Electronics – which recently introduced a number of impressive, well-priced Android tablets and is also noted for winning Runner-Up for “Best Tablet of the Year” at CES 2012 —

    One of the first resellers to carry the new Ainol – Novo brand tablets is a site called TabletSprint — and this week the Novo 7 VENUS launched — a 7 inch tablet with a QUAD CORE processor for only $149 USD that takes on the Google Nexus 7 and other competitors for a lot less and offers a lot more — with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, a high resolution 1280×800 IPS screen, 16GB memory, a 4000 mAH battery, both front and rear cameras, a MicroSD memory card slot for unlimited storage, Google Play with access to 400K+ Apps, a MicroUSB port for connection to printers and other electronic devices, HDMI – to view personal videos and to download movies and watch in full 1080p (HD) on to a large screen TV, WiFi, Ethernet, and an option for 3G/4G connection. It’s also a great gaming device with its high resolution screen and motion gaming sensor. The site TabletSprint also offers a 7″ Compact Case with built-in Keyboard ($22) which easily transforms a tablet into a mini-laptop–

    TabletSprint offers a few other brand new models with most launching in January, including the Novo 10 Hero – a full-size 10 inch tablet packed with impressive features for only $219 USD.

    TabletSprint also includes $25 in quality Bonus Apps with all tablets available through their site…. both these new models and a few others are certainly worth checking out and comparing to other major brands.
