Archos has just introduced four new budget droids in the market with a decent specs sheet to back it up. The smartphones come under the Titanium lineup and will be known as the Titanium 40, 45, 50 and 53 respectively. These smartphones share most of the internal hardware with each other including a dual core MediaTek MT6572 chip, 512MB of RAM, a 5MP camera on the back and 4GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot. All the phones come pre-loaded with Google apps and runs on a relatively stock version of Android on board.
The top end Archos Titanium 53 sports a 5.3 inch display with a resolution of 854×480, while the Titanium 50 sports a 5 inch qHD display while the Titanium 45 and Titanium 40 pack a 4.5 inch and a 4 inch WVGA displays respectively. All the above smartphones come with support for dual SIM and HSPA+. Customers will be pleased to know that the smartphones run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. Each smartphone will come with 15GB of free Google Drive storage free. The pricing of the smartphones start from €99 ($135) and the top of the line Titanium 53 costs €159 ($217), so in any case you won’t be spending more than $217 for either of these handsets.

It looks like this year is going to be a tablet year for Archos as the company announced an additional four more tablets at the CES on top of the two previously shown off. These tablets fall under their Titanium line which offers superb performance and offers the best value for your money.
Common to all four tablets is the use of a high-def IPS screen, 1.6 GHz CPU ,a quad core GPU and the use of Android 4. 1 Jelly Bean. The difference between these models is the display size which varies from 7 inches all the way up to 10.1 inches.
The ARCHOS 70 Titanium
- 7 inches
- 119€, $119, £99
- similar features to competitors such as Amazon, at a better price point
The ARCHOS 80 Titanium
- 8 inches
- 169€, $169, £149
- similar features to the iPad mini at a better price point
The ARCHOS 101 Titanium
- 10.1 inches
- 199€, $199, £169
- similar features to the competition at a better price point
The ARCHOS 97 Titanium HD
- 9.7 inches
- 2048 x 1536 pixels
- 249€, $249 and £199
- an alternative to the new iPad for half the price
The company seems to be going head on to the popular models of other manufacturers by offering great specs at a low price. The Archos 70 Titanium for instance will compete directly with Amazon’s Kindle Fire. The $80 price difference between the two devices will make consumers think twice on whether to buy the more expensive model or opt for the cheaper one and use the savings on other items.
One thing we are impressed with is the ARCHOS 97 Titanium HD which has the same resolution as the iPad with Retina display yet comes at half the cost.
The company didn’t provide any details when these tablets will be released but hopefully it will be on March which is the same time their Platinum line will hit the market.
Stay tuned at this site as we provide you further details on this exciting new line.
Motorola’s ruggedized portrait qwerty keyboard Android device, called the Titanium, has been given an official release date and pricing. Sprint will begin selling the Titanium on July 2th at $149.99 on a new 2 year agreement.
The Motorola Titanium blends some of the features from the Motorola XPRT (on Verizon The Droid Pro) with military specification 810G which is a standard for dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation and high and low temperatures. It also includes push to talk via Sprint Nextel’s IDEN network. Which could be the last, if not one of the last smartphones on the IDEN network as Sprint is preparing to launch their own PTT service and abandon the IDEN network in lieu of using it for 4G.
