French webTV journalists from were present at the MEDPI 2013 tradeshow last week in Monaco, they have just posted their report about the new ARCHOS Smartphones. They are focusing on the first models with larger screen Platinum 50 (5") and Platinum 53 (5.3") that were demonstrated on the show. ARCHOS Smartphones pricing is announced as follows: ARCHOS 35 Carbon: 79,99€ / £79.99 (that is ~$105), ARCHOS 50 Platinum: 199,99€ /  £179.99 (~ $260) and ARCHOS 53 Platinum: 249,99€ / £199.99 (~ $326)


Update 2013/05/30: the availability of the Archos 50 Platinum continues to slip. The date has been updated to 14th of June 2013 at online store and first week of June on ARCHOS online store. - see below.

ARCHOS 50 Platinum smartphone release date in June ?

Grosbill French online store is one of the only shop to display a shipping date for ARCHOS 50 Platinum smartphones and is currently announcing for 14th of June 2013, this date being delayed every day lately. There is no clear sign that the availability for end of May announced by ARCHOS will be met, something which is quite common with ARCHOS, the GamePad has shipped with about 3 months delay, the TV Connect…
