Archos is no stranger to the Android tablet space. The company has released several Android tablets that were often priced below the competition. When the Nexus 7 came out, poor Archos’ budget-friendly tablets suddenly became less relevant. Archos isn’t giving up though. It just revealed the Archos 97 Titanium HD. It’s a Jelly Bean tablet with a 9.7-inch 2048×1536 IPS display. The main things we don’t know yet is a price or release date.
While we wait for this tablet to launch, lets see what specs the Archos 97 Titanium HD will bring. It has a 1.6GHz dual-core A9 processor, a quad-core Mali 400 MP4 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of flash storage (with a 64GB microSD slot) and two cameras at 2-megapixels and 5-megapixels. You get all that inside a shell that looks very similar to a white iPad. Somehow, I don’t think that’s accidental.
The Archos 97 Titanium HD also comes equipped with Google’s library of official apps such as Google Play. Since this tablet doesn’t appear to support GPS, Google Maps probably won’t be as useful as it could be.
We’d imagine Archos won’t price this tablet exceptionally higher due to the dual-core processor and the lack of GPS.
