ARCHOS 101 Saphir rugged tablet comes with a keyboard

The word “Saphir” calls to mind “sapphire”, which, in the context of mobile devices, is usually associated with toughness and durability. That is probably the thought that ARCHOS is trying to evoke with the ARCHOS 101 Saphir, the first tablet in its rugged Saphir line. While it might not exactly be the toughest nor the most powerful, it may have one thing over other tablets in this niche market. This rugged Android tablet is really a 2-in-1 in disguise and comes with a keyboard to help boost productivity whenever and wherever.

It has just announced its partnership with French manufacturer ARCHOS to create devices that will be sold in Europe not under ARCHOS own brand but as Kodak devices.

It seems, however, that the extent of the AdUps spyware is more far-reaching than initially thought. According to a report from mobile security outfit Trustlook, AdUps’ list of customers also includes some rather known brands like ZTE, Lenovo, MediaTek, and even France-based Archos.

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 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.
