Archos has gone ahead and decided to unveil just what it will be showing at next week's IFA 2014 trade show in Berlin, including a new Windows Phone 8.1 device and a Windows 8.1 tablet.

The company offered a brief description of their new Archos 40 Cesium for Windows Phone 8.1:

"The powerful and affordable smartphone features Windows Phone 8.1 operating system and enjoys an ultra-clear 4-inch screen. Available in September for only $99, the ARCHOS 40 Cesium is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 Quad Core processor and comes with three coloured back cases, yellow, blue and black."


The company also has presented a short note about their new Archos 80 Cesium Windows 8.1 tablet, stating that it has "an 8-inch IPS screen with 1280x800 resolution and is run by an Intel Quad Core processor. Available in October for only $149, ARCHOS 80 Cesium perfectly blends quality and affordability, and replicates the user experience of your desktop on the go."

Archos did not offer any more information on the specific hardware specs of either of their upcoming Windows hardware products, but hopefully we will learn more next week. In the meantime, what do you think of these new devices?
