Archos 101 Titanium was one of the slates present at CES 2013 and now it reaches the FCC, confirming the details we already had about it. This is a 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 slate with an IPS panel for display and a dual core 1.6 GHz Rockchip processor.


There’s also a quad core GPU on board, WiFi b/g/n and a 3.7 V Li-Ion battery. The FCC testing means we could see this model hitting the States soon, but don’t expect it to reach any carrier, since this is the kind of tablet that’s sold by retailers, off contract. Archos 101 Titanium is expected to be priced at $199, being 30% cheaper than the competition with comparable features, according to Archos.

The pre production Archos 101 at CES ran Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and had a solid metal back. From what I know there should also be a mini HDMI port on board and according to people who played with the slate, the transitions between apps were fast, so lag is not a problem. Seeing how this product is $199, would you buy it instead of the Nexus 7?
