The Archos Android tablet family the French PMP maker revealed was in the works last month have just been outlined and pictured for the first time. Now we know what the company’s iPod touch rival might look like, as well as how much it’ll cost. Read on for the details.
Archos revealed it had plans for a range of Archos Android internet tablets back at CeBIT last month, stretching from ten inches screen sizes all the way down to three. But now those models have been revealed for the first time in a slideshow presentation reportedly shown by Archos CEO Henri Crohas to Chinese partners.
While the image is obviously the same render shrunk down a few times, the slide still gives us plenty of gossip about the upcoming Archos Android tablet line, as well as a good idea of the curved, Sony Ericsson Vivaz lines they’ll sport. We now know that there will be no fewer than six different sized models, with performance provided by either an ARM Cortex 800MHz CPU, or a 1GHz chip capable of churning through OpenGL graphics for snazzy gaming.
Multitouch will also be onboard for pinch zooming on the new Archos Android tablets, and best of all, they’re expected to come in at a seriously low price: just $100 (£64) for the smallest, presumably 3-inch model, up to $350 (£226) for the largest.
We hope Archos is still on track for a Summer launch for its new Archos Android line up, as it originally announced, and we’ll keep you posted on any further news.
