Archos Announces Four New Budget-Priced Jelly Bean Tablets
Archos has a reputation for making some inexpensive electronics of decent quality, and it’s using its expertise in that field to release four new budget-priced Android tablets that make up its Titanium line.
With dual-core 1.6GHz SoCs, these tablets aren’t going to be the fastest things around by a long shot, but at least they’re equipped with modern software, all running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and there sure are a lot of options, all with low price points.
The lineup consists of the 70, 80, 101, and 97 Titanium models, representing 7.0, 8.0, 10.1, and 9.7-inch tablets. The first three are the most affordable of the bunch, priced at about $120, $170, and $200, respectively. The 9.7-inch tablet features a high-res 2048 x 1536 screen (no word on resolution for the rest, but it’s presumably much lower) and will be priced around $250.
We’d definitely want to see how all these perform before recommending any, but those size-to-price ratios are pretty attractive.
