Archos' $99 USD Windows smartphone and the $149 USD 8-inch Windows tablet from the same Cesium lineup will be shown off at IFA 2014 and are expected to hit the market later this fall.

In addition to various Android smartphones and tablets and a set of Connected Objects compatible with both iOS and Android devices, Archos will bring to IFA 2014 two Cesium devices loaded with Windows 8.1. These are the Archos 40 Cesium smartphone and the Archos 80 Cesium tablet.

The first of the two is a "powerful and affordable smartphone" with a 4-inch screen which runs Windows Phone 8.1 and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor under the hood. It will be available for purchase for only $99 USD starting next month and will ship with three colored back cases - yellow, blue, and black.

The Archos 80 Cesium tablet is described as "the ideal Windows 8.1 tablet" and features a quad-core Intel processor and an 8-inch IPS display with 1,280X800 pixels. No other technical details have been revealed at this time, but Archos mentioned the slate will hit the market in October for just $149 USD.

Next to the above, the following Connected Objects will hit the market in September as well - Music Light, Music Beany and the Archos Weather Station. For more information about all of them, please check the press release below.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
