ARCHOS unveils 80 Cesium, a Php6,500 Windows 8.1 tablet

ARCHOS, a mobile device manufacturer based in France, has recently announced a plethora of devices in preparation for this year’s IFA. One of those devices is an 8-inch tablet dubbed as the ARCHOS 80 Cesium which runs on full version of Windows 8.1 and is powered by a quad-core Intel processor.

ARCHOS 80 Cesium

In a short description of the tablet provided in the the press release, the ARCHOS 80 Cesium is said to have an 8-inch IPS display with 1280 x 800 resolution and will come pre-installed with Windows 8.1right out of the box. Doing the workload for the tablet is an undisclosed quad-core processor made by Intel.

Sadly that’s all there is to it for now as the press release didn’t give out a lot of details about the ARCHOS’ exciting new Win8.1 tablet. What we do know though is that the ARCHOS 80 Cesium will be available in the market starting on October and will have a very competitive price tag of just USD149 when it hit shelves.

  1. Wow, mura! Pero laking added gastos ang paglalagay dyan ng Windows Office.

    • Built-in sa lahat ng Windows 8 Tablets ang home edition ng Windows Office.

    I’m currently using the ASUS Tranformer Book T100. And frankly, Windows 8 is getting there. If it were to get more quality apps, then android would probably fade away.

    Windows PHONE OS on tablet? I’m so confused.

    • Typical

      full windows 8.1 x86/x64 tulad ng gamit ng mga desktop at laptop nayon. madami nang labas na ganyan sa ibang brands, pero yan ang pinakamura… office is also included for free

      IM ALSO CONFUSED! Windows phone 8 daw yan yuck letse
      higanteng telepono amp

  4. Bakit may Call sa drawing pang windows phone yung itsura dual sim pa hehehe.

  5. Gadgeteer

    panalo ito, now if only the hackers can flash it to kitkat hehehe..

  6. Sounds cool..
    Will it support java graphs and OTG?

  7. May dalawang klase ang Windows Tab, yan ay Windows Tab at Tab Pro.
    Ang Tab Pro ay yung may windows explorer at pwede i install ang mga windows software kahit nung programs ng windows 98.
    pero kung Windows Tab lang, yung mga Windows 8 at 8.1 apps lang ang pwede mag run dito.

    • Ano? hahaha anong windows tab at windows tab pro? ngayon ko lang narinig yang OS na yan ah… sa explanation mo prang windows 8 at windows rt yan hehehe.

    • Name: lol

      talino mo bro. pero kung ako sayo alamin mo muna pinagsasabi mo.

      tsaka wala namang nirelease na render ang archos sa 80 cesium dun sa source, ewan ko kung san pinulot tong render at windows phone pa ang nilagay na start screen

    It’s nice to know that we’re seeing now affordable products with Windows 8.1 & Windows Phone 8.1 devices under 10 inches. Microsoft did announce before that they are making the licenses free as long as its below that screen size.

    Most probably the tablet is a standard Windows 8.1 OS and not Windows Phone 8.1 OS is loaded, since it’s being powered by an Intel processor. (Haven’t seen any WP8/8.1 phones Intel procie AFAIK)

    The question is: when they (Archos) will bring this tablet to PH? :)

  9. Typical

    Letseng aparato yan, windows phone 8.1 ang OS, tulad ng mga nakalagay sa lumia phones… mura nga basura naman. OTG at file explorer lang pahirapan sa bwiset na device na yan. TAE ang microsoft, kung windows pro x86/x64 na ba naman ang ilagay dyan with call/sms/data functionality de WALA NANG PROBLEMA, BEBENTA NA!
    Kung sino man una maglabas ng phablet na windows 8.1 pro x86/x64 ang OS, sila sana ang yumaman dahil naisip nila yung di ginagawa ng microsoft… at sigurado bibili ako nun, at rerekomenda ko sa lahat ng kakilala ko

      pero itong basura ng archos na ito, kahit 5999 pesos lang yan mas pipiliin ko na yung asus memopad me176c dahil hamak na mas madaming apps at madaming nagagawa. o kung tablet phone habol ko hintayin ko na lang yung Fonepad FE370CG…

  10. The article is quite confusing. The photo shows Windows Phone 8/8.1 OS interface but the article says it running full Windows 8.1 OS (x86 or x64).
    And if it is running in full Windows 8.1 OS, Office 2013 won’t come preinstalled (it may have but it could be pricier). Preinstalled lang po ang Office 2013 sa Windows RT devices.

    • Free ang office kahit sa windows x86/x64 basta below 10inch yung gadget. Pero itong archos 80 ay clearly stated sa pdf na windows phone 8.1 device meaning higanteng phone yan with mobile os tulad ng makaagay sa mga lumia. So avoid & forget na lang…

  11. I have the same situation. Windows tablets dont have much apps thats the sad reality of the platform. Negative comments about windows8 UI did not help either. Anyway, I would buy this in a heart beat XD
