If a high resolution display at a low cost is your priority when looking for a tablet device, cast your gaze on the new Archos 97b Titanium Android slate. Set to be an exclusive to Dixons and Currys stores in the UK, its 9.7-inch screen boasts a Retina iPad matching display resolution of 2048 x 1536 for a penny shy of £200.
Running Android Jelly Bean 4.1, the tablet is powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core A9 processor backed up by a quad-core GPU and 1GB of RAM.
Though there’s no Bluetooth, let alone NFC connectivity options, you’ve got access to a 4G connection as well as 3G for on-the-go browsing of the full span of the Google Play app store. And though only 8GB of internal storage is offered up, at least you can expand this by as much as 64GB with a microSD.
DLNA networked streaming of media content is also supported, along with a pre-installed copy of OfficeSuite Viewer 6 for getting a bit of work done on the tablet.
