French consumer electronics company, Archos, has just unveiled its upcoming tablet that “attempts” to challenge Apple’s iPad. It’s officially called the Archos 97 Titanium HD, and, similar to the iPad 4, it also features a 9.7-inch IPS display with a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution. Under the hood is a 1.6GHz dual-core A9 processor and a Quad-core GPU Mali 400 MP4. All of that power is supported by a 1GB RAM and an 8GB internal memory.
Other notable features of the Archos 97 Titanium HD tablet include a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, MicroSD card support (up to 64GB), Wi-Fi support, not to mention that it is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. From the looks of it, Archos didn’t try to customize Android, at least not in an obvious way, which is good.
Everything’s good, except for its availability and pricing, which was not announced, although many industry observers expect something in the $299-$349 range. So, before you clap your hands for Archos, save some excitement will you? [Official site]
