Intel kicked things off with its $149 Compute Stick, and Lenovo followed up this week with its $129 ideacentre Stick 300. Now a new player has entered in the form of the Archos PC Stick. Not surprisingly, Archos’ entry doesn’t stray to far from the formula used by Intel and Lenovo. That means you’ll find the same quad-core 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z3735F processor, Intel integrated graphics, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. You’ll also find a microSD slot, microUSB connector, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0. The Archos PC stick will come pre-loaded with Windows 10, which means that you likely won’t be able... Read more...
ARCHOS on Tuesday issued a press release claiming it invented "Fusion Storage," a clever storage scheme that's not to be confused with Apple's Fusion Drive and Fusion-io technology. They're slightly similar technologies, in that both combine two different storage options and present them as a single drive. The way it works is when you pop a memory card into a compatible tablet's microSD card slot, ARCHOS will use special software to combine the built-in memory with the external card, thereby fusing the two separate storage mediums into a single solution. So if you have 64GB of internal storage... Read more...
In a market where one of Google’s operating systems (Chrome OS) is gobbling up sales from traditional notebooks, another of Google’s operating systems (Android) is getting a new treatment with the Archos ArcBook. The company is calling the device an Android netbook. It has a 10.1-inch (1024x600) touchscreen, runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, comes preloaded with Office Suite Pro 6, and costs a mere $169.99. The full keyboard features Android shortcuts, and the battery purports to last 10 hours. The ArcBook runs on a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 (1.2GHz) processor and offers 1GB of RAM, 8GB of... Read more...
ARCHOS on Tuesday announced the availability of its ARCHOS 101 XS 2 tablet, the latest model from its Gen11 family of slates. It's a 10.1-inch tablet with an IPS display, 1280x800 resolution, quad-core A9 processor clocked at 1.6GHz (and quad-core Mali 400 GPU), 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage supplemented by a microSD card slot for up to an additional 64GB of storage.

Archos has made a bit of a living out of producing low-end, super affordable gadgets. Namely, audio players and tablets. While they hardly ever impress anyone from a benchmarking standpoint, it's tough to overlook the latest. It's the Archos 80 Xenon, the company's latest and greatest 3G tablet in the Elements range.  It's a 8-inch unit, which goes toe-to-toe with the Galaxy Note 8.0 in that form factor, but at a far cheaper price point. $199.99 (half of the Note 8.0) gets you the following: a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), an IPS multi-touch panel (1024x768), built-in...

Archos, long known for its many (mostly Android) tablets, announced today that it’s getting into the smartphone game, too, starting with a line of Android handsets that are designed to offer a nice balance of features and affordability. Specifically, Archos is eyeing the unlocked smartphone market, where the lack of subsidization from carriers is both a blessing and a curse, as users can be free to choose the carrier of their choice but also have to drop loads of cash on a decent smartphone (or phablet, as it were). The company believes it’s found the sweet spot with the Archos 35 Carbon... Read more...
Archos was a fairly large purveyor of low-cost MP3 players and tablets, but of late, we haven't really heard much from the company. Now, however, the GamePad is making its U.S. arrival, and it may satisfy those who have been waiting for things like the WikiPad to come to fruition. The GamePad runs on Android 4.1, so it's capable of running the myriad games stocked on the Android store. It's got a 7" (1024x600) display, a 0.3"-thick frame, a 1.6GHz dual-core CPU, Mali-400 MP GPU and a bargain price -- just $189 on the top end. Given that it runs Android, you can also use it to do more than just... Read more...
Archos today introduced its Platinum range of tablets, which the company claims are among the first Android slates to offer a super high resolution IPS (In-Plane Switching) screen combined with the performance of a quad-core processor. There are three models to choose from, including 8-inch, 9.7-inch, and 11.6-inch SKUs, all of which feature a sleek aluminum design. All three boast an IPS panel with capacitive multi-touch support, a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.2GHz, an 8-core GPU with support for Full HD 1080p video decoding, 2GB or RAM, front and back cameras, mini-HDMI output, a microSD card slot,...

If looks could kill, the new 9.7-inch Titanium HD tablet from Archos would be lethal, at least based on the handful of pics we've seen. Even more impressive is the tablet's spec sheet, not the least of which includes a brilliant IPS panel with a 2048x1536 resolution, the same as Apple's 3rd and 4th generation iPad devices. Unlike the iPad, the Titanium HD is all about Android. It comes out of the box wielding Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, giving users full access to Google Play and the Google Now voice assistant software, which is arguable better than Siri. On the hardware side, the Titanium HD sports... Read more...
Archos on Thursday announced the retail availability of its new GamePad device, or the "first true Android games console," as the company pitches it. The Android-powered GamePad is a new type of tablet that combines physical gaming button controls and Archos' patented mapping tool with a full Android tablet experience built around Jelly Bean (Android 4.1). It features full access to Google Play and Google Mobile Services. It's also only available in Europe for the time being, where it's selling for 149.99€, or $194.75 in U.S. currency. Speaking of which, Archos says the GamePad is destined... Read more...
French electronics maker Archos announced a new portable game console that will be available well ahead of the holidays. The Android-based Archos GamePad has physical game controls that are designed to work with all of your Android games. The key here is the GamePad’s compatibility with past, present, and future games, regardless of whether they're designed for physical controls. Archos says it has a patented technology for automatically mapping virtual controls to its physical controls. Identical sets of game buttons and analog sticks flank the GamePad’s 7-inch screen. “Thanks... Read more...
Archos appears dead set on proving you don't need a Microsoft Surface tablet to own a thin and light slate with a keyboard dock. You can have the same thing on Google's Android platform, as Archos proves with its new Gen10 XS tablet line announced today. One of those new tablets is the Archos 101 XS, a 10.1-inch slate that weighs a mere 21 ounces and measures 0.31 inches (8 millimeters) thick. It boasts a 1280x800 resolution, ARM-based A9 processor clocked at 1.9GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and promises to deliver an unadulterated...

Archos has been teasing the impending launch of its upcoming Gen 10 xs tablet for some time now, and today the company posted its first press photo on Facebook. The thin and light G10 xs is said to be a Google-certified device with unfettered access to everything in Google Play. From the press photo along with previously released information, we know the G10 xs will be a glossy white tablet (possibly in black as well) running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It will also have a mini HDMI port, microSD card slot, micro USB port, and probably a TI OMAP 4770 processor. As for the rest of the specifics,... Read more...
Archos has long since been the king of low-cost tablets, and now the company is introducing a new range entirely: Elements. It's an entry-level family with 7", 8" and 9.7" options, all of which have full access to Google Play and Google apps. The new 97 Carbon weighs just 21.8 ounces and measures 0.45" thick. There's an IPS capacitive touch panel, as well as a 1GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). It's expected to ship this month for $229.99 to $249.99; you may say that the Nexus 7 is cheaper, but this does have a larger 9.7" screen for those interested. There's no word yet... Read more...
