In Archos' ongoing initiative to create way, way more tablets than anyone else, the company this morning unveiled four new tablets in what it's calling the "Titanium" line (not to be confused with the Platinum line, of course). That name doesn't refer to the actual materials these tablets are made of, but rather their tech prowess -- all four feature high-def IPS capacitive multi-touch screens with dual-core 1.6GHz CPUs and an unnamed quad-core GPU, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. They come in a range of sizes, from 7-inches ($119) all the way through 10.1-inches ($199). We'll be going hands-on with the newly revealed tablets in the coming hours, so keep an eye out for more detailed impressions and some snappy images (would you expect any less?). For the full pricing on all four tablets, head past the break for the official word from Archos.
