35 Carbon, 50 Platinum, 53 Platinum: Archos Smartphones kommen


Wir hatten gerüchteweise schon davon gehört, jetzt ist es klar. Archos macht endlich Smartphones. Das Carbon Smartphone ist eher am unteren Ende angesiedelt mit den Platinum Smartphones bewegt man sich im billigen, aber doch schon kräftigen Spezifikationen. Alle drei kommen mit HSPA 3G, Dual-SIM und 4GB Speicher, erweiterbar mit microSD. Das 35 Carbon kommt mit einem HVGA 3,5-Zoll Bildschirm, 1GHz Snapdragon S1, 512MB RAM, ICS und VGA Kamera. Die beiden der Platinum-Serie, 50 und 53 Platinum, kommen mit 1,2GHz Quad-Core, 5 bzw. 5,3-Zoll qHD Screens, 1GB RAM, 8 Megapixel Kamera hinten und 2MP vorne und Jelly Bean. Zum Preis von 100 Euro für das Carbon, 230 und 280 Euro für die Platinum Smartphones bleibt Archos seiner Preispolitik treu. PR nach dem Break.

ARCHOS Unveils Affordable Unlocked Android 3G+ Smartphone Line

ARCHOS leverages years of Android tablet expertise to launch a smartphone range starting at $99

New Platinum range will allow end-users to experience full access to the Android ecosystem, IPS screens, Quad-core CPUs and 8 Megapixel cameras in a sleek design

Denver, CO – April 18th, 2013 - ARCHOS, a pioneer in AndroidTM devices, is pleased to announce its first line of GoogleTM certified smartphones.

"The smartphone market is shifting, as SIM-free sales versus subsidized sales are increasing, and ARCHOS is prepared to respond, as we can offer retail channels affordable, unlocked and feature-rich smartphones without the need to subsidize," says Loïc Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS.
