In late December, French consumer electronics company Archos unveiled the 97 Titanium HD, an Apple iPad 4-like tablet running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but failed to release any pricing information. Nearly three weeks later, at CES 2013, Archos has finally revealed the missing detail.
The French firm places the 97 Titanium HD as "an alternative to the new iPad" but without the intimidating price-tag. The 9.7-inch tablet will run for a more sensible EUR249, $249, or £199, depending on the market, half of what the newest iPad goes for. Archos also released pricing for the remaining Titanium lineup.
The 7-inch 70 Titanium will retail for EUR199, $119 or £99, the 8-inch 80 Titanium for EUR169, $199 or £149 and the 10.1-inch 101 Titanium for EUR199, $199 or £169.
The company says that all of devices feature an IPS multi-touch panel, 1.6 GHz dual-core processors, "aluminium design" and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The specs are nothing to write home about, but the price is attractive.
