Archos 94 Magnus tablet packs 256GB of internal memory

March 6, 2015

Today, Archos has announced three new tablets, the 101 Magnus, 101 Magnus + and 94 Magnus, which are all equipped with plenty of internal memory for the media heavy consumer. In fact, the 94 Magnus comes with a gargantuan 256GB of internal storage, with room for an extra 128GB microSD card, if you really need it.

Archos claims to have been able to squeeze so much memory into a tablet due to its “Fusion Storage” technology, which essentially combines microSD card storage and internal memory into a single memory partition. The benefit is that you can use all of the storage for apps, games and other large files.

The Archos 101 Magnus is the cheapest of the line-up, [...]

Archos unleashes new hybrid Android tablet for $279

November 6, 2013

The tablet, which debuted to positive reception at IFA 2013 in September, is the successor to last year’s 101 XS and offers a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, a 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex A9 ARM processor and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

It also comes with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, dual-band Wi-Fi, and the neat Coverboard magnetic keyboard cover which was also on the first-generation model.

Somewhat unsurprisingly considering these middling specs, the tablet is now available at U.S. retailers for a respectable $279.

Archos hones in on niche Android tablets and affordable smartphones

September 7, 2013

BERLIN, GERMANY: Archos detailed a raft of new products at the IFA convention, including the new Titanium smartphones, the high-end Titanium tablets, the Xenon tablet range and the 101 XS 2 – the convertible Android tablet which succeeds the original 101 XS, which launched last year.

The latter offers a faster quad-core 1.6GHz processor and an enhanced screen (1280 x 800 resolution IPS display), but maintains the included stand dock and is affordably priced at €269 (approximately $355). U.S. pricing is still to be confirmed with the tablet to launch “soon”.

The Xenon tablet series is also new and has been introduced as a cheaper alternative to [...]

August 28, 2013

It’s fair to say that the iPad isn’t exactly short of keyboard docks. Logitech, Kensington, iLuv, Zagg and even fellow tablet maker Archos have all come out with compelling products in the last three years, from integrated keyboards with adjustable kickstands to one Bluetooth keyboard which can even be rotated 360 degrees to be used a stand.

However, in a bid to move away from more conventional designs, start-up Nimblstand recently released its first keyboard dock, an innovative and extremely light design that promises great stability and some useful other features for improving your personal productivity.

Built for stability, not style

The keyboard dock [...]

5 innovative tablets you’ve probably never heard of – but should

Qooq tablet gives chefs food for thought

It should come to little surprise that a French company launched a cooking tablet. The French do, after all, love their food.

Qooq unveiled the waterproof dual-core Linux tablet over a year ago at CES and promised at the time that it would be perfect for the kitchen environment.

It certainly cooks up a feast when it comes to the specifications. The QooQ tablet has a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 resolution display, is Wi-Fi-only and has connections for USB, Ethernet and an SD card slot. The device comes with 8GB of flash memory and a kick-back stand, and is also said to be drop-resistant.

Now available in the U.S. starting from [...]

Android tablets overtaking iPad ‘inevitable’ but …

May 30, 2013

Apple exited 2012 with about a 50% share of the tablet market, a share most research firms think has slipped a bit further in recent months.

Android tablets are the iPad's biggest competitor, but that covers a range of devices from various vendors.

“It’s inevitable that Android tablets will overtake iOS-powered slates, though we see no single vendor challenging Apple’s dominance anytime soon,” says Jeff Orr, senior practice director at ABI Research. “With media tablets commercially available for more than 4 years, momentum is shifting toward value and affordability, putting tablets in more of the population’s [...]

Two unique deployments prove that tablets are for all ages

April 9, 2013

The Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles recently deployed iPads in its neonatal intensive care unit (NCIU), primarily for mothers to interact with their new-born children and medical staff.

The roll-out sees one iPad being given to the mother, while another is placed next to a child’s incubator when admitted to NCIU. Mothers are allowed to log onto to the solution, which is called BabyTime, twice a day to check on their child.

The Cedars-Sinai Medical Center says that these iPads come in handy for mothers recovering from a Caesarean section. Indeed, the center claims that 20-30% of mothers who have undergone a C-section do not feel well enough to [...]
