Archos, the French consumer electronics maker, has just launched a tablet named Archos 97 Titanium HD.
According to the specs sheet, the latest tablet from the French company boasts of a 9.7-inch IPS display with an excellent 2048×1536 pixel, which is comparable to the iPad from Apple. But although the display is top-notch, under the hood the Archos tablet is a different affair.
The Archos 97 Titanium HD is powered by a 1.6GHz ARM Cortex-A9 dual core processor and ARM Mali 400 graphics. The slate also comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage, along with a microSD card slot. The Archos 97 runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has a decent 5MP rear camera with auto-focus along with a front-facing 2MP camera for easy video chat and self portraits. The dimensions of the tablet are 9.4″ x 7.2″ x 0.35″, and it weighs 1.5 pounds.
Archos has not revealed yet the price of the 97 Titanium HD or its release date. However, European customers can expect it to be shipped soon. It is yet to be seen how many people will be interested in the device, with the plethora of Android tablets already flooding the market. The key differentiator could be the price.
