This year’s IFA is very close, and we already have some pre-announcements of the event. Namely, French consumer electronics company, Archos has prepared some affordable devices for its customers. Let’s take a look at what Archros has to offer.
Archos has pre-announced a number of handset devices that will be presented at IFA event next week. Loïc Poirier, CEO of Archos said of the new range
“We are committed to making technology universally available and are proud to shape the market by providing high quality, yet attainable devices.”
These new devices definitely should get a little attention, but unfortunately we only know a little bit of the specifications for now. Devices that are going to be released are: the 50b Platinum’ and 45c Platinum Android smartphones and the 101 Oxygen tablet. You can find more information about these devices in the official PDF file, here.
Firs, let’s talk about Archos 80 Cesium tablet, the 8-inch device is powered by Windows 8.1 and employs an IPS type screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.
The Archos 80 Cesium tablet features a solid Intel quad-core processor, but we still don’t have any information about specifications of the chipset. Archos claims that their new tablet offers users “the user experience of your desktop on the go”. It will be available in October for affordable price of £129, claims the UK press release.
When it comes to smartphone, it’s powered by Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1. It features a very good 4-inch screen, with still unknown type and resolution. On the inside, Archos chose the Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor which supports displays up to 720p. This device uses the same processor as used by the Nokia Lumia 530 and Motorola Moto E. Reportedly, the smartphone will be available from September for the price of just £79
Customers will also be able to choose between multiple color schemes for back cases, between blue, yellow and black. These new Anchros handsets show that Windows powered devices are definitely starting to reach prices of Android devices.
