In addition to three smartphones, Archos also announced a new Android tablet, the 80 Helium 4G. Just like the phones, the tablet is a budget-friendly offering, presumably one of the cheapest among 8-inch slates. The Archos 80 Helium 4G LTE is yet another addition to the Helium lineup announced by manufacturer at Consumer Electronic Show in January. The Archos 80 Helium will hit the stores with a starting price of $249 some time later this year.
Archos 80 Helium 4G LTE Android Tablet
The Archos 80 Helium 4G, as its name suggests, is an 8-inch slate featuring 4G LTE connectivity. It is slightly surprising yet welcome combination, since not many tablets of such size can take pride in offering 4G connectivity, and certainly not at this price level.
The screen is made with IPS technology and offers 1024 x 768 resolution. The tablet is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm MSM8926 processor and has Adreno 305 GPU crunching graphics.
The 80 Helium 4G is equipped with a 5-megapixel main camera with autofocus and LED flash as well as a 2-megapixel camera located on the front. There is also 1 GB of RAM on board along with 8 GB of internal memory and microSD slot for storage expansion.
In addition to 4G connectivity, the tablet also features GPS navigation, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi with hotspot capability. The device measures 213 x 155 x 10.5 mm and is powered by a 3,500 mAh battery. The Archos 80 Helium 4G will ship with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box.
