Archos has a new range of devices to unveil at this year’s CES, all capable of connecting to 4G LTE networks and accessing Google’s services. Archos’ new smartphone, the 50 Diamond, brings an impressive spec list, coupled with great pricing.

As for tablets, Archos has one model, in three sizes. The Helium 4G comes in 7.0″, 8.0″, and 10.1″ size options, featuring identical specs. This range of tablets feature a quad-core processor, sub-HD IPS displays, 1GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity, rear and front-facing cameras, Bluetooth, microSD card slots, and all run Android 4.4+ with zero skin.
