Archos Platinum TabletsArchos unveiled its Platinum range of tablets today, which include the 80 Platinum, the 97 Platinum HD, and the 116 Platinum.

All three tablets share the same specs under the hood, which include a quad-core, 1.2 GHz CPU (with an 8-core GPU and 1080p video decoding), 2 GB of RAM, access to Google Play, dual cameras, and mini-HDMI and microSD card ports. They will also all run Android OS 4.1, aka Jelly Bean, and will all have high-def IPS displays, though of different sizes and resolutions.

The 80 Platinum is an 8-inch tablet with a 1024 x 768 resolution and is priced the lowest at $199. The 97 Platinum HD, meanwhile, is a 9.7-inch tablet with a 2048 x 1536 display, which is comparable to the iPad’s Retina display. It is more affordable than the iPad, however, going for $299. And finally, there is the 116 Platinum, which has a unique screen size of 11.6 inches and features a 1920 x 1080 resolution. It is the most expensive of the three, priced at $349.

Though there aren’t exact release dates for the three models, the 80 Platinum and 97 Platinum HD are both scheduled for a February release, while the 116 Platinum will be coming in April.
