Kodak-branded Archos tablets to hit the European market in H1 2017

When you think of tablets, what brands usually come to mind first? For most people, these probably include the likes of Samsung Tab, Apple iPad or Amazon Fire series. We're pretty sure that Kodak won't be on the current list of anyone, but as it turns out, the imaging tech firm will look to change that in the near future.

However, Kodak won't do it alone, as it has decided to select French electronics corporation Archos as a brand licensee. This is an extension of the company's program to sell off or licence its brand and patents, which helped it to narrowly avoid bankruptcy a few years back.

Brian Cruz, Vice President and General Manager of Kodak's Consumer Products Group, has hailed Archos as a "key player" in the European tablet market:

We are excited to be adding ARCHOS to our portfolio of brand licensees... ARCHOS has a strong track record in the computer tablet sector. The French brand was the first to introduce a Google Android tablet in 2009 and is recognized as a key player in the European tablet market with broad retail presence.

The new Kodak-branded tablets will sport 3G connectivity and an 8 MP back camera. The gadgets will also come with some integrated apps that will “provide photo and video enthusiasts with creative options”. In its announcement, the company stated that these new devices will become available in European markets before the Summer of 2017.

I got one circa late 2010/early 2011 and I returned it within 2 days. The quality was such a letdown.
