I’ll admit that this bit of mobile tech gossip hit close to home as my very first Android experience was through the screen of an Archos tablet. Now I’m excited to know that the French OEM will be launching three new tablets during MWC: the Oxygen tablets. Details are scarce about these new tablets as they have just been announced today.
From what we know, the tablet will come in three sizes: a 7 inch (the 70 Oxygen) an 8 inch (the 80 Oxygen) and a 10.1 inch (the 101b Oxygen). All will have 1920 X 1200 displays, a Quad core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3 GHz coupled with the Mali-T720 GPU. They will have 16 gigabytes of non-removable storage and 2 gigabytes of RAM. The batteries will be 3,000 mAh for the 7 inch, 4,000 mAh for the 8 inch, and 6,000 mAh for the 10 inch. Right off the bat we can tell that these are going to be mid-ranged tablets through and through, but one thing that’s definitely going for them is the fact that they will run Android Marshmallow out of the box.
I can’t wait to see what a modern device by Archos can do, so I’ll definitely keep an eye out for developments in this story. Other details about these tablets are shrouded, so stay tuned and keep your eyes and ears open during MWC for more information on Archos and all of the other OEM’s launching during MWC.
