Archos is still going although it’s not the house name it once was, however perhaps a brand-new profile of products will help it claw back some customers.

First up is the Platinum tablet array with the choice of the ton being the Archos 97b Platinum HD which features a quad-core processor, aluminium body, complete HD screen and Android 4.2.

Then there’s the Archos 101xs2 (that name needs a bit of work) which once again packs a quad-core chip in addition to front facing speakers and “unique” magnetic keyboard functionality.

Kids and gamers

For the children there are a couple of new tablets, with 8 and 10-inch screens, passing the names 80 ChildPad and 101 ChildPad. These sport a chunkier build and a child friendly interface total with parental controls.

Another market Archos is wanting to target is tablet players with is GamePad 2 offering a mix of Android tablet and games console.

Archos likewise has 3 tablets lined up in its Xenon Range which all feature HD displays and 3G connectivity, and apparently they’ll be cheaper than Samsung and Apple Wi-Fi tablets.

When it comes to smartphones the firm’s brand-new flagship model is the Archos 50 Oxygen, with a 5-inch full HD display, 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera and pure Android 4.2.

That doesn’t sound to worn-out on paper, but we will book proper judgement until we get our hands on it.

Archos will be showing off all its new items at IFA 2013 in Berlin next week and TechRadar will be there to bring you all the most recent from the program.
