ARCHOS 70b Titanium and 97b Platinum product updates with better screens and CPUs

1

After the disappearance of the ARCHOS 70 Titanium in the ARCHOS online store and the many delays in shipping the Platinum tablet series, two updated models have been presented at the HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring Edition) 2013 and were filmed by Charbax video blogger.

ARCHOS 97b Platinum

The main difference with the regular ARCHOS 97 Platinum is the processor which is a Rockchip RK3188 instead of the Boxchip Allwinner A31. No release date has been given, the 97b Platinum “might come soon” according to ARCHOS representative on the show.

Here is a video:

The ARCHOS 70 Titanium has made a short appearance on ARCHOS Store but is not listed anymore for buying and should probably be soon replaced with a new 70b Titanium model. The specifications of the 70b are similar to the older model, with 7″ screen, dual-core Rockchip RK3066 processor at 1.6 GHz Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, HDMI output and micro SDCard, new updated features are a full alumium backcase and a 1280×800 resolution instead of 1024×600. No mention of Bluetooth support has been made, so the device should be missing this feature as most recent ARCHOS Elements tablets do. The ARCHOS 70b Titanium should be available in a month at a price of $129 / £109 and probably about €129. It’s a decent competitor for the Hyundai T7 tablet which offers slightly more features (GPS, Bluetooth) for the price.

Stay tuned for a review 🙂
