Archos announces new Oxygen mobile line up

With MWC 2016 fast approaching, some companies are busy preparing their big reveals. Some, however, are very early birds, getting things out of the way quickly. Days before the congress, French OEM Archos is unveiling its latest roster of mobile devices for its "high end" Oxygen brand. Of course, given Archos' specialty, high end here means decent wallet friendly Android smartphones and tablets. That said, the three new Marshmallow-powered Oxygen tablets and the Lollipop-toting 50d Oxygen smartphone could still give other mid-range devices a run for their money.

Archos joins the enterprise fray with GranitePhone

With the launch of Silent Circle's privacy-focused Blackphone 2 and the upcoming fully Android BlackBerry Priv, Google's spiel of Android for Work is suddenly becoming more interesting. Trying to capitalize on this still nascent market, Archos has joined forces with communications and security company Sikur to bring out the GranitePhone. Like the aforementioned smartphones, this Android handset has security and privacy in mind, which is especially enticing for an enterprise scenario. The one catch is that it does thing slightly differently from what others are doing so far.

ARCHOS DIamond Plus smartphone makes it just in time

ARCHOS DIamond Plus smartphone makes it just in time

Just when you thought ARCHOS was done spurting out one mobile device after another, it sneaks past one more just before IFA 2015 started. The third of its new Diamond family, the Diamond Plus smartphone is making the same appeal that Lenovo recently made with its new PHAB line: a bigger smartphone for those who want bigger things in life. That said, ARCHOS's phablet is not exactly as big as Lenovo's and it most certainly isn't as high performance as those either.

ARCHOS Flip sounds like a Lenovo Yoga, look like one

If anything, ARCHOS is more known for its budgets smartphones, tablets, and beanies, but now it seems that the French manufacturer is ready to break out into a new market segment. Using the launch of Windows 10 as an opportunity, ARCHOS is announcing the Flip, what is practically a Cherry Trail powered budget-friendly convertible tablet/laptop hybrid. What makes the ARCHOS Flip interesting, or probably amusing, is not the device itself, but how ARCHOS' announcement uses a Lenovo Yoga's image, with Windows 8, instead to depict it.

ARCHOS IFA 2015 smartphone team: 2 Android, 1 Windows 10

With IFA around the corner, it's time for manufacturers to put out their wares. And French OEM ARCHOS will definitely not be left behind. It isn't anything out of the ordinary for it to announce new members of its Android smartphone roster but it is somewhat a surprise, perhaps even a pleasant one, to see it put out a Window 10 smartphone. This makes it one of the first few manufacturers to reveal a new device that will run Microsoft's new OS tailored to fit small sizes.

Archos PC Stick offers Windows 10 on an HDMI dongle budget

Archos PC Stick offers Windows 10 on an HDMI dongle budget

The trend of PC sizes is interesting and amusing. For a time, computers, even laptops, have almost become gargantuan, cramming every piece of technological wizardry inside. Now, however, things are going the other ways, with laptops touting thin and lightweight bodies and PCs coming in small, nondescript boxes. We now even have perfectly usable PCs the size of an HDMI stick. Archos, who is probably more known for its Android tablets and smartphones than its Windows devices, is jumping on the latter, with a new PC stick that promises both Windows 10 and a sub-$100 price tag.

Archos’ 256 GB tablet may no longer become reality

Archos’ 256 GB tablet may no longer become reality

At MWC last March, Archos made two rather bold announcements. The first as a Fusion Storage technology that would seamlessly merge both internal and external microSD storage as a single unified storage. The second was a tablet that would be boasting 256 GB of internal storage alone, plus a 128 GB capacity expansion. At least one of those won't be seeing the light of day, though both might actually be stillborn. A French news site is reporting that the 256 GB Archos 94 Magnus is being scrapped even before it can hit the shelves.

Archos announces Fusion Storage tech, 256 GB tablet

When speaking of mobile devices, there are usually two kinds of storage. Internal memory which comes with all devices and, for those with microSD card slots, external or expansion storage. Android seems to have a love/hate relationship with the latter, with Google opting to scrap it altogether because of security and stability, while users want the freedom to expand their available storage. Archos seems to have a rather strange solution called "Fusion Storage" that attempts to virtually combine the two into one unified "internal" memory.
