Even though tablets are becoming more and more affordable, prices of top brands still remain relatively high. Luckily for those who don’t have too much money to spare there are companies that let them take a plunge into tablet world for much less cash. One of such companies is Archos famous for making inexpensive electronic devices. The French manufacturer announced a new lineup of tablets, called Neon, which should be even more affordable than its previous offerings. Exact pricing hasn’t been revealed yet, but we expect the slates to cost under $200.
Archos New Tablets: 90 Neon, 97 Neon, 101 Neon
The Archos Neo series includes three Android tablets, the 90 Neon, 97 Neon and 101 Neon. The numbers in the names correspond to screen sizes, meaning that the slates come with 9-inch, 9.7-inch and 10.1-inch displays, respectively.
The Archos 97 Neon rocks a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels which works out to a pixel density of 131 ppi. Resolution of the 90 Neon and 101 Neon is 800 x 480 pixels and 1024 x 600 pixels. All three tablets are powered by MediaTek Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.6 GHz in the 97 Neon and 1.4 GHz in the remaining two.
As far as other features are concerned, they are identical in all three tablets and include 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, expandable up to 64 GB via microSD slot, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and the full set of Google’s apps and services. In addition to front-facing VGA cameras found in all three slates, the Archos 97 Neon also sports a 2-megapixel rear camera.
