Archos was among the busiest CES 2013 exhibitors, but given the extremely high number of launches we saw in Las Vegas, the French might have not gotten the exposure they deserved.
We talked about the four-member Titanium line and the humongous 13.3-inch FamilyPad tablet in January, but we may have actually missed the coolest Archos gadgets out of the bunch – the Platinum range.
Fortunately, Archos is again showing off the tab trio, also promising that they’ll all be on display at CeBIT come next month. The 97 Platinum HD stands out the most, packing an awesome 2,048 x 1,536 pixels resolution 9.7-inch IPS panel, a 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU, 2 GB of RAM and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
You can find the same chip, RAM and software inside the 80 and 116 Platinum, while the only things that set the two apart from the 97 are the displays. The Archos 80 boasts an 8-inch IPS screen with 1,024 x 768 pix res, while the 116 comes with a large and comfy 11.6-inch 1,920 x 1,080 panel.
The 80 and 97 will go up for sale by the end of this month for $199 and $299 respectively, while the 116 Platinum will start at $349 come April.
