ARCHOS are planning quite a bang at CES this year, and following their Connected Home is the ARCHOS Helium 4G range, running Android 4.3″ Jelly Bean. The phones start at under £200, and provide a feature rich and consumer friendly technology to their consumers.

The 45 Helium will feature a 4.5″ screen with IPS technology, a Quad Core 1.4 GHz processor running on 4G/LTE network. The 50 Helium offers a larger screen at 5″, and gives 8GB of storage and an 8MP camera. The phones put Archos in line with the latest in the world’s mobile technology.

“The smartphone has revolutionised the way consumers access information, giving them the ability to instantly view, connect and share ideas regardless of location and time,” says Loïc Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS. “The ARCHOS Helium 4G smartphones will once again change consumers’ mindsets by making the best possible technology affordable.”

The phones support microSD card for memory expansion, dual cameras with autofocus, micro USB connectors for sync and charge, and support a variety of multimedia files. Add to that everything that comes with Android, and you get a complete Google experience.
