Archos launches three new Neon series budget tablets

Archos 101 Neon

Archos has just unveiled three new tablets under the new Neon moniker in varying sizes, catering to different market segments. Although all three tablets are relatively bigger from conventional Android tablets in the market today, we are hoping the prices will make them stand out from the crowd. The Archos 90, 97 and 101 come with a 9 inch (480 x 800), 9.7 inch (1024 x 768) and a 10.1 inch (1024 x 600) display respectively.

Looking at the specs sheet, it is clear that the tablets will be targeted towards the budget segment and not the high end market segment, contrary to what one would believe from their sizes. All three tablets are running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and a quad core ARM Cortex-A9 processor although the clock speeds vary (1.4 and 1.6 GHz). The tablets come with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage with support for microSD cards.

Archos is yet to give out information on the pricing of the three tablets, but we think it will be priced under $500. There’s no cellular connectivity on board, so users will be limited to using the tablets over Wi-Fi. Expect a European rollout of the three tablets followed by the rest of the world.
