“Fusion Storage” created by ARCHOS, tablets with 256GB of internal storage and support for 128GB micro SD cards


Device storage can sometimes turn into a rather heated battle between users. Be it the cloud users insisting smaller device storage is all you need, or the dedicated micro SD card guys wanting to pack a 128GB card in their device for various needs. The battle tends to heat up even further when it comes […]

archos_mwc_2015_phones_lineup

We are only days away from the official start of MWC 2015 and Archos has already unveiled a new batch of phones running Android 4.4 KitKat. The 52 Platinum, 59 Xenon, and 62 Xenon are the handsets being marketed as multimedia-friendly with quad-core processors.

Hit the break for a look at the specifications as well as another one introduced by Archos.

The designs of the 52 Platinum, 59 Xenon, and 62 Xenon may differ but the specifications are relatively the same. The display sizes start at 5.25 inches and climbs to 6.27 inches with the 62 Xenon and all of them have 1280×720 resolution. Each has an 8MP rear camera, but only the 62 Xenon trades the 2MP front camera for a 5MP lens. Archos went with the MediaTek Mt6582 processor with 1GB of RAM to power all of them. Internal storage is set at 8GB with more when a microSD card is inserted.

Archos bundled dedicated media-related applications to ensure a seamless experience when viewing photos, watching videos, and playing games.

Pricing is as follows: 59 Xenon ($145); 52 Platinum ($158); 62 Xenon ($170)

The fourth handset announced is the 50 Oxygen Plus which Archos describes as “combining ergonomic design, performance and power for an affordable price.” At around $157, the 50 Oxygen Plus measures 7.2mm thin while packing an octa-core processor. There is a 5-inch display, 8MP / 5MP cameras, and 16GB of storage (with a microSD card slot).

This version of the 50 Oxygen Plus features only a 3G connection; however, Archos says an LTE model with Android 5.0 Lollipop is coming in June.

ARCHOS and Freshub Launch ARCHOS Kitchen Screen, the World’s First Connected Kitchen e-Grocery Shopping Tool


ARCHOS Kitchen Screen

On January 6th at CES, ARCHOS, a well-known manufacturer of Android devices, and Freshub, a connected-kitchen Israeli startup, launched the ARCHOS Kitchen Screen. The end-to-end service is a kitchen-tailored version of the ARCHOS Smart Home Tablet.

The ARCHOS Kitchen Screen allows consumers to be able to shop for grocery products. They can do this by adding them to a digital shopping cart by either waving the desired item in front of the screen or using voice commands. The included touchscreen also suggests custom coupons, recipes, and alternatives to wanted items that are unavailable. You can even stream music, set up security cameras, install a digital picture frame, or get clock and weather information.

Loic Poirier, in relation to the unveiling, stated, “As leaders in the Connected Objects field, we are proud to work with Freshub to connect the kitchen. Our Smart Home vision now helps people to keep their kitchens filled up thanks to the world’s first connected device offering an instant grocery retail link. This game-changing connectivity will considerably alter the way people shop and will shape the future retailing experience.”

Currently, there is no word yet on the specs, prices, or release date.

Archos announces two new LTE devices ahead of CES unveiling


archos diamondArchos has announced two new devices that the company will be showing off at CES this year, and both devices offer a ton of value for the price. Archos is weighing heavily on the LTE aspect of its new phone and tablet duo, which seems to be a trend for budget phones this year.

First up is the Archos Diamond, an incredibly affordable smartphone at a very low price. The Diamond features an octa-core CPU, 16 GB of internal storage with 2 GB of RAM, plus a full HD 5-inch display. The smartphone features 4G LTE radios, so the network won’t be the bottleneck here. Archos plans on releasing the Diamond with a price tag below $200.

The second device announced is the 80b Helium 4G tablet. The company didn’t specify much in the way of specs, but did clarify that it would be a sub-$150 tab with a 1.5 GHz processor. They’ll likely reveal a little more about it at CES in a few days.

In addition to these two new devices, Archos announced that they will be refreshing some of their other models of smartphones and tablets to include 4G LTE radios. Definitely a step in the right direction in the extremely competitive budget market.

Archos plans to release low-cost virtual reality headset


archos_vr_headset

It may not be as cheap as cardboard, but Archos is working on a low-cost virtual reality headset to compete with the Samsung Gear VR. The new Archos VR Headset will supposedly retail for £25 ($40 USD) in the U.K. when released in November.

Besides being much cheaper than the projected $200 price tag for the Gear VR unit, the Archos unit will be capable of working with any smartphone that measures somewhere between 5 and 6 inches.

The key to whether the Archos VR is really the deal it seems to be is whether it will do anything more than just provide hands-free viewing of a smartphone, possibly adding some 3D type effects thanks to the lenses. Even that may be enough to justify the investment.

Any interest out there in a cheap virtual reality headset from Archos?

ARCHOS VR Glasses


archos vr glasses

Virtual Reality is a field that has yet to bring anything to the table that I feel is worth the money. For $200+, you get a feeling of being immersed in something, whether that’s a movie, or game, etc, that doesn’t feel comfortable enough to continue using in my opinion. At Google I/O 2014, Google released and gave out Google cardboard, which I took to essentially say “we already have the technology in our smartphones, all you need is some cardboard and rubber bands and you have yourself a VR device!” Well, ARCHOS has taken this idea and made it better.

On Thursday, ARCHOS announced via email their ARCHOS VR Glasses. Available in November on archos.com and other retailers for $29.99, this device takes your Android, Windows Phone, or iOS device (up to 6 inches) and turns it into a Virtual Reality experience. You can combine it with the upcoming ARCHOS Bluetooth game controller for an immersive gaming experience. Or watch movies on it with upcoming ARCHOS Video Player update, and you’ll feel as though you’re watching a 3D movie in a theater.

In my opinion, this is the best way to implement VR. Simple, cheap, and requires nothing more than your smartphone and its content. I think ARCHOS is on to something here.

What do you think of this device?

Archos is launching a GearVR competitor that costs just $40


We may not know how much GearVR will cost, but we’re reasonably sure that Archos is already trying to undercut Samsung and Oculus head-mounted effort. The French company is busting out the wittily-named Archos VR Headset, a Rift-like device that’s compatible with any smartphone that measures between 5 and 6-inches. The kicker here, of course, is that the device will retail for £25 in the UK, roughly converting to $40, which would put it well beneath the – frankly insane – $200 figure an unnamed Samsung official told VentureBeat during New York Fashion Week. If you’re interested in trying one out, it’ll be available at some point in November, and we hope that the GearVR isn’t too far behind.

Archos announces colorful new smartphones


archos_50b_platinum_press

The bargain smartphone segment has grown immensely recently and it will continue to grow with Archos’ new Platinum smartphones.  The Platinum line is made up of two new smartphones, the 45c and the 50b.  The 45c is the smaller of the two phones with a 4.5″ screen.  The 50b is the big brother of the family with it’s 5″ screen.  Either can be had in your choice of blue, pink or black.

As far as specs go, both of these smartphones are just about identical.  The 50b does have a better camera, an 8 MP compared to the 5 MP in the 45c.  The big selling point seems to be the quad-core processor found in both phones, Archos claims, “it should handle the most demanding tasks.”  It will be interesting to see how this processor performs compared to other smartphones in the $99 range.  The Archos Platinum smartphones will start at $99 for the 45c and go up to  $119 for the 50b.

Super cheap Smart Home kit brings automation to the masses


If you’re wondering when home automation might tip into the Walmart-level mainstream, here’s a sign: Archos’ Smart Home starter kit is now on sale. Along with two cameras, two movement tags and two weather tags, they’re throwing in a controlling tablet, all for $250 — or $25 each for the cameras and sensors. Archos says they’re the first to use the Bluetooth Smart tech in connected homes and engineered it to work at double the normal distance (65 instead of 32 feet) and with up to 13 devices. That’ll permit it to take a photo when a movement-tagged door is opened, for instance, using its scenario editor and the Tasker Android app. Archos also has controllable plug sockets, alarm sirens, motion-detectors and even a pet tracker planned for the future. The kit should hit its online shop soon, but fair warning — Archos is known for low-priced, but not exactly high-end goods.
