Archos quietly outs 97 Titanium Android tablet with retina-like display


Archos has quietly released their newest Android tablet, the 97 Titanium. This particular Android tablet is unique in the sense that it’s one of the few tablets out in the market today that has a resolution of 2048 x 1536 and sports a 9.7-inch IPS display, which approaches iPad territory as far as pixels-per-inch is concerned. Internally, the 97 Titanium sports a dual-core 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, but only 8GB of storage. Of course that’s expandable via a microSD card, and the entire thing is run by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

We’re a bit puzzled why Archos would put a lackluster processor beside a (comparatively) stunning display. Externally, it’s nice to look at, though in our opinion it bears too much resemblance to Apple’s own tablet offerings. The device isn’t for sale yet, and currently does not have a price tag or availability date yet.
