Archos Titanium, the good budget Tablet?
22 January, 2013 | Web design
A few months back there were rumours flying around everywhere that the Nexus 7 was going to be a £65 tablet which obviously wasn’t true but now it looks like Archos will release a new line of Titanium tablets at the starting price of £99 for a 7 inch screen.
And surprisingly it has quite a lot of positive feedback...
Archos is to roll out many different varieties of tablets in the line, including the 7 inch Archos 70 (£99), the 8 inch Archos 80 (£149), the 10.1 inch Anchos 101 (£169) and the 9.7 inch Anchos 97 (£199). All of which pretty much share the same core specs.
Dual-core 1.6GHz CPUs with quad-core GPUs, 8GB of storage (upgradable to 64GB by microUSB), lackluster 2MP front-facing cameras, and they all run Jellybean 4.1.
The Archos 9.7 however shows off a 2048 x 1536 display yet the Archos 70 only manages 1,024 x 600. Although this is a step up from the original Archos 70’s 800 x 400.
As with most things, you get what you pay for, considering the prices of its competition with the Nexus 7 coming in at £159 and the iPad Mini at £269, the Anchos 70 actually isn’t too bad.
It may not have the smooth experience of the Nexus 7, but its performance is serviceable.
The Archos tablets are pretty good considering their low prices but if you have the extra £60 you will get so much more with the Nexus 7.
The Archos Titanium line looks like a promising budget tablet, but don’t be expecting Nexus 7 and iPad quality.
