MWC 2015 | Archos 94 and 101 Magnus tablets officially unveiled
Today at MWC 2015 in Barcelona, French manufacturer Archos unveiled three new Android tablets, the 94 Magnus, the 101 Magnus, and the 101 Magnus Plus. The main feature of the new tablets is the Archos "Fusion Storage", a technology that is said to seamlessly combine the integrated storage and the microSD card in a single pool of internal memory.
According to the manufacturer, Fusion Storage works in the background to merge the microSD card with the integrated storage space by transferring data between the two storage mediums. Fusion Storage will be integrated in all future Archos tablets, while some of the existing models will get the technology through an OTA update.
According to Archos, the 94 Magnus will be world's first tablet with 256GB of storage space. The tablet also comes with 9.4-inch IPS display running a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, a 1.8GHz quad-core Rockchip RK 2888 chip, 1.5GB of RAM, and a 6200 mAh battery. The Archos 94 Magnus will be released in April for $379, but the tablet will be sold exclusively through the company's web store.
The Archos 101 Magnus is the cheapest of the three new Archos tablet, with an associated price tag of $179. This gets you a 10.1-inch "IPS-like" display with a resolution of 1024 by 600 pixels, a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek 8127 chip paired with 1GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 4000 mAh battery.
The Archos 101 Magnus Plus features a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, a 1.8GHz quad-core Rockchip RK 2888 chip, 128GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, and a 7000 mAh battery. The 101 Magnus Plus will be priced at $379 when it launches in April.
