ARCHOS has recently introduced, their first line of Android Smartphones with 3 different models from 3.5" to 5.3". According to the press release:
"The flagship device, the ARCHOS 50 Platinum, features a stunning 5.0 inch full black IPS display paired with a quad-core CPU at 1.2GHz and an 8MP camera. Enduser will have an experience similar to a Samsung Galaxy S3 for half the price."

On paper, there is a significant speed difference for processors based on ARM Cortex-A5 and ARM Cortex-A9 architecture. Wikipedia indicates 1.57 DMIPS / MHz (per core) on the A5, while 2.50 DMIPS/MHz/core are announced on the the ARM Cortex-A9. Other factors have great influence…
