Just a day after we wrote about the US release of the Archos 97 Titanium HD, we also got the news of the release of the smaller Archos 80 Titanium which has become available from Amazon today, for a price of $169.
Being a part of Archos Titanium line of four differently sized Android tablets, the newly released Archos 80 Titanium is powered by the same 1.6GHz dual-core A9 processor, runs the same Android 4.1, and have all the other specs of the its bigger brother, the flagship Archos 97 Titanium HD that we mentioned yesterday, apart from in display matters.
So, whereas the 97 Titanium HD have the same 9.7-inch display 2048×1536 pixels resolution as that of an iPad 4, the 80 Titanium makes do with an 8-inch display with a more standard 1024×768 pixels resolution.
Of course, the benefit of lacking the retina display of its bigger sibling, means longer battery life, increased graphics processor performance, and a tablet computer that is $80 cheaper.
Apart from these differences in size, display, and price, the Archos 80 Titanium have the same modern appearance with a white bezel and very Apple-like looks. So similar in fact, it makes you wonder if Apple doesn’t feel like suing them.
