Today, Archos has announced three new tablets, the 101 Magnus, 101 Magnus + and 94 Magnus, which are all equipped with plenty of internal memory for the media heavy consumer. In fact, the 94 Magnus comes with a gargantuan 256GB of internal storage, with room for an extra 128GB microSD card, if you really need it.
Archos claims to have been able to squeeze so much memory into a tablet due to its “Fusion Storage” technology, which essentially combines microSD card storage and internal memory into a single memory partition. The benefit is that you can use all of the storage for apps, games and other large files.
The Archos 101 Magnus is the cheapest of the line-up, priced at $179 and featuring a 10.1-inch 1024×600 resolution display, a quad-core MediaTek MT8127 SoC, 1GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The 101 Magnus + features a quad-core Rockchip RK 3288 SoC, a higher resolution 1920×1200 10.1-inch display and 128GB of internal memory, as well as a decent 7000mAh battery.
However, the Archos 94 Magnus is the real choice for the storage demanding consumer, featuring 256GB of internal memory and the same quad-core processor. However, the tablet features a lower resolution 1280×800 9.4-inch display, but has the same $349 price tag as the 101 Magnus +. You can see the full spec list for the tablets below.
All three of the tablets will be available to purchase in April 2015, but the 94 Magnus will be sold exclusively through the Archos online retail store.[press] ARCHOS Invents “Fusion Storage” and Announces First Ever 256 GB Android Tablet
