Electronics maker Archos has unveiled the Archos 80 Cesium tablet, a device running Microsoft Windows 8.1 and uses an Intel quad-core CPU with a 1200 x 800 resolution. The 8" tablet's hardware specifications haven't been released, but for $149, the price point might attract consumers.

Archos has released multiple Google Android tablets, but hopes a low-price Windows 8.1 tablet will help draw users in - most Windows 8.1 tablets, from Microsoft, Dell, Lenovo and other OEMs, are still rather expensive.

 

The company also introduced the Archos 40 Cesium, a 4-inch Qualcomm Snapdragon 200-powered smartphone running Windows Phone 8.1. It will be released in Europe next month for around $130.

 

"Our upcoming lineup of consumer products delivers amazing performance, superior design and impressive affordability," said Loic Poirier, Archos CEO, in a press statement. "We are committed to making technology universally available and are proud to shape the market by providing high quality, yet attainable devices."
