While we’re usually advocates of the “less is more” rule when it comes to technology, we can’t let Archos’ efforts of releasing as many tablets as possible go unnoticed. The French consumer electronics company has been unexpectedly silent during the opening days of CES 2013, but it has decided to make its Vegas presence noticed now with the unveiling of no less than four (!) new Android gadgets.

The Titanium tabs are almost identical hardware-wise, having dual-core 1.6 GHz CPUs under their hoods along with quad-core GPUs and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. All four have high-quality IPS capacitive touchscreens, but the differences come from the size and resolution of these panels.

The 97 Titanium sports a 9.7-inch display with an awesome resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels that very few Android tabs are capable of these days. The 101 is actually larger than that, at 10.1 inches, but it won’t have a screen as impressive as its smaller brother.

As for the 80 and 70, these are targeted against the iPad Mini and Amazon Kindle Fire, according to Archos officials, sporting 8 and 7-inch panels respectively. The price points will start at $119 (the 70 Titanium) and go all the way up to $249 (the 97).
