The gadget lovers are not much familiar with the French Gadget maker Archos. But the fact is that they have already introduced half a dozen tablet models into the market. Even though their international market share is not so impressive, they managed to bring in some exciting gadgets that could match up with many top models. To survive in this highly competitive industry they were forced to launch something unique and this time they have surprised many. They have introduced their latest model Cesium 80 which is a windows 8.1 device that costs only around $149 only. You can call it as the cheapest Windows tablet available in the market. This will certainly bring some high reputation to this company in the international market.
Archos Cesium 80 which is based on a windows platform as mentioned earlier. They have changed to their strategy of developing Android based tablets this time. This tablet consists of an 8-inch display that supports full HD display of 1200 x 800 pixels which is based on In-Plane Switching (IPS) display technology. While revealing the model to the public they haven’t published the configuration details. There was a clear indication that the device will be based on an Intel’s Quad core engine. Later they have announced that the processor model will be quad-core Intel Atom Z3735G Bay.
The secrecy was also there with other configurations like RAM capacity, internal storage used etc. According to the company they have included 1 GB RAM with an internal storage capacity of 16 GB which is expandable to 128 GB using microSD cards.
