Archos announces Titanium Line: Archos 70, 80, 97 and 101 are affordable at all sizes
The Archos Titanium lineup consists of the Archos Titanium 70, 80, 97 and 101, tablets with a 7-inch, 8-inch, 9.7-inch and 10-inch displays. All of them are high-definition IPS with great viewing angles and aluminum design that is reminiscent of Apple’s iPads. We have already seen the 9.7-inch tablet rocking the same unbelievable resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, but now the company also revealed its price as well as three new form factors.
Here is how the prices break down:
- Archos Titanium 70: $119 (119 euro)
- Archos Titanium 80: $169 (169 euro)
- Archos Titanium 97: $249 (199 euro)
- Archos Titanium 101: $199 (249 euro)
All of the devices share the following spec highlights:
- High Definition IPS display capacitive multi-touch screen
- Dual core CPU at 1.6 GHz with Quad core GPU, with 1080p video decoding
- Sleek aluminum design
- Android 4.1 ‘Jelly Bean’ with the 700,000 applications on Google Play and the Archos Media Center applications
At that price, they are clearly very competitive in the low-end with Amazon’s and other new affordable tablets. How do you like those new devices?

The 97 has the iPad 3/4 screen, expandable (to 64gb) memory, OTG capability (plug in a USB device with a micro adapter). Buy a 64gb micro SD card for $65, and you've got 72gb for half the cost of a 32gb iPad 4. Plus it's a a fraction of an inch smaller in width and length, a couple hairs thinner, and a few feathers lighter.
Sounds like a winner to me. So long as the processor and memory are enough to crank out that crazy resolution. I was planning on getting a Nexus 7 with my tax refund, but the Archos 97 (and the Note 7, and potential others) are looking even better.

They also have some really classy keyboards that double as a screen protector clam shell. Archos has really stepped up their game, if the initial reviews are favorable with the 9.7" model, I'll be buying it to replace my OG Transformer.
I looked at their website last night and it says they have 1 gig of RAM but I saw a video from CES where the Archos rep said it was going to ship in March with 2 gigs of RAM.
