ARCHOS has elbowed its way to becoming an Android mainstay, and at the ongoing Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, it has just made some interesting announcements.
First, it just released details on a new type of storage technology called “Fusion Storage.” From the press release:
A revolutionary and unique technology, ARCHOS Fusion Storage optimizes data storage by fusing internal memory with external micro SD card memory. Once activated, ARCHOS Fusion Storage automatically migrates data from the micro SD card and optimizes memory balance, resulting in an increase in install space for apps and games, as well as more storage for media and large files.
ARCHOS Fusion Storage will be available on all new ARCHOS tablets and smartphones, including the new Magnus tablets, and through Over-The-Air updates on select models.
And, the aforementioned Magnus tablets are new as well, and some variants will reportedl be the first tablets to pack 256 GB of storage.
The first ever Android tablets with up to 256 GB of internal memory, the Magnus range embodies ARCHOSâ€™ belief of delivering excellent tablets with huge storage capacity. Replacing mechanical drives for ultra-fast flash drives, the Magnus series guarantees excellent processing power, superb speeds, and an immersive user experience.
The ARCHOS 94 Magnus and ARCHOS 101 Magnus Plus feature 256 GB and 128 GB of internal storage respectively and enthralls users with amazing HD graphics and outstanding app and media experience without worrying about running out of space for their files, music, games or pictures.
Whether watching an HD movie, surfing the web or gaming in HD, the Magnus tablets completely immerse you into another world. The ARCHOS 101 Magnus Plus and 94 Magnus feature super powerful Cortex A17 quad-core processors capable of running apps and games smoothly while remaining energy efficient for even longer battery life.
The ARCHOS 101 Magnus Plus 128 GB will be available in April 2015 for $349. The ARCHOS 94 Magnus 256 GB will also be available in April 2015 exclusively on the archos.com online store for $349.

As noted above, these tablets will begin to be available in April 2015.
