Archos Reveals 3 Budget Smartphones For European Market

Archos has revealed three budget smartphones powered by the Android mobile operating system that is expected to hit Europe in late May, 2013. The names of these smartphones are the 35 Carbon, the 50 Platinum, and the 53 Platinum. The 35 Carbon runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, while both 50 and 53 Platinum smartphones take advantage of the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system. All three smartphones support dual-SIM capability.

The 35 Carbon, 50 Platinum and 53 Platinum will be priced at $100, $220 and $250 respectively. Those aren’t bad prices for the specifications that you get with the phone. On top of all that, they’re contract free and unlocked – what more could you ask for? Their designs aren’t bad, however, I am iffy about their names. Then again, you don’t have to go around bragging to your friends about these phones saying, “hey, I own a 35 Carbon”.
