French manufacturer Archos is certainly no stranger to the tablet game, with four Titanium tablets joining its already-burgeoning line-up at CES last month.
In a move that’d shock even Samsung, Archos has fired out another three new tablets – this time under the Platinum moniker. Sweet mother of Moses.
The accompanying press release, straight outta Denver, Colorado, introduces the Archos 80 Platinum, 97 Platinum HD and 116 Platinum.
As the names possibly suggest, display sizes on those bad boys are 8in (1024 x 768), 9.7in (2048 x 1536), and a beastly 11.6in (1920 x 1080) respectively. Oh, and they’re all IPS.
Other shared Archos Platinum specs include quad-core CPUs at 1.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, mini-HDMI and microSD, and Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).
As it did when it unveiled the Titanium range, Archos has cheekily compared the new chaps to rival tablets.
The Archos 80 Platinum, for example, “compared to the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is almost twice as fast”, while the Archos 97 Platinum HD’s resolution is “comparable to the Retina display found in the iPad, but 40% less expensive”.
The Archos 116 Platinum, however, is “unlike anything currently on the market”.
The release date for the Archos 80 Platinum and 97 Platinum HD is February (priced $199 and $299 respectively), while the Archos 116 Platinum will follow in April, priced $349.
