Yesterday we heard about the new Android smartphones from Archos, and now the company has announced that they will be launching in the UK with prices starting at £69.99.
The Archos 35 Carbon will retail for £69.99, the Archos 50 platinum will retail for £179.99 and the Archos 53 Platinum will retail for £199.99, these devices will launch in the UK at the end of may.
“The smartphone market is shifting, as SIM-free sales versus subsidized sales are increasing, and ARCHOS is prepared to respond, as we can offer retail channels affordable, unlocked and feature-rich smartphones without the need to subsidize,” says Loïc Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS. “Furthermore smartphones and tablets are interrelated markets that have quickly crossed over with the arrival of “phablets” – half-phone, half-tablet devices. It only makes sense that this should be our next phase of products as this would be a natural fit for our brand and long term growth.”
