Archos 80 Titanium lands to offer 8in tablet goodness for just £129

Archos 80 Titanium lands to offer 8in tablet goodness for just £129Are you after a tablet that offers really good value – one that's... you know, affordable, a good deal, dare I say it extremely cheap?

Yes, there's the Google Nexus 7 at £159 and the Amazon Kindle Fire for an even lower £129, but how about this: the brand new Archos 80 Titanium, which is bigger than either at 8in, and still costs just £129.

Some of the credit must go to Carphone Warehouse, which is snipping £20 off the RRP to offer this specific deal, but that original price is low enough on its own to earn the Archos 80 Titanium attention in its own right.

We covered the quartet of models in Archos' new Titanium range when they launched at CES last month, including detailing their low prices, but with everything else going on at the time it didn't really touch sides.

So far it's just the 8in Archos 80 that's available, and only in white (from CPW, anyway). That means the even cheaper 7in Archos 70 (RRP £99) is still coming.

Spec-wise, the Archos 80 is by no means threadbare, dishing up a 1,024 x 768-pixel IPS touchscreen, a dual-core 1.6GHz processor (with quad-core GPU), 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage plus microSD card support, dual cameras and the pure Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS.

That's some seriously good value, and from a name with plenty of standing when it comes to Wi-Fi-enabled media players (and what exactly is a non-3G 7in tablet really?).

You can double up the internal storage to 16GB for an additional £70. Alternatively you could just buy an 8GB memory card for a few quid, but it's up to you.

From a marketplace seller. Amazon are charging £169.99 and won't have it in stock for a couple of months.

You can go to Craphone Warehouse, it's hard to tell which one is worse.
