Archos shows off new Titanium line of tablets at CES

Archos is pumping out new tablets pretty quickly at CES, and today they’ve got a new lineup of four more tablets for us. The new Titanium family sports a high-def IPS screen and a 1.6 GHz CPU, as well as Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Titanium tablet comes in four different sizes, starting at 7 inches and going up to a beefy 10.1 inch screen. The 7 inch tablet starts at an attractive $199, and 8 inch tab runs $169, the 10 inch will cost $199, and in an odd change of pace, the slightly smaller 9.7 inch will be a little more expensive at $249. The 9.7 inch tablet will also apparently feature a 2048 x 1536 screen and claims to be an alternative to the new iPad at half the cost. We’ll just have to wait and see if consumers think these tablets make decent alternatives. For the rest of our CES coverage, click here.
