In the Power line we have a new 4 incher in the form of the Archos 40 Power. This is a budget offering with 3G and a high capacity 1900mah battery offering a 2 day battery life. Memory comes in the form of 8GB on board storage with 1 GB of RAM. They also unveiled a larger 4G version in the form of the Power 50 – this time with a 5″ screen and 16GB on board storage and 2GB of RAM.

Both phones feature quad core processors from an undisclosed party and microSD card support. They are coming in for very good prices – £49.99 for the former and £129.99 respectively with availability starting in May. These are firmly in the budget camps and look to be good offerings for those who need long lasting batteries.
