Archos 50b, 50c Oxygen Are Budget Quad, Octa-core Smartphones – Android Community

Native Outlook Web App preview now out for some Android phones | Ars Technica

Lets take a look at what they have to offer. The spec sheet reveals that both variants the 50b quad-core and the 50c octa-core will be running MediaTek chipsets, pretty famous in the budget smartphone market. The 50c will be sporting the MT6592, developed MediaTek in the latter part of 2013 as the first true octa-core mobile processor . This chipset will be turning 8 Cortex A7 cores running at 1.7Ghz, which is pretty awesome considering the USD$300 price range. The 50b priced at around USD$220 will be using MediaTeks MT6582 chipset, which is a quad-core processor running at 1.3Ghz per core. Strangely, and maybe by necessity being a budget phone, both variants will have only 1GB of RAM. The performance boost of added RAM say maybe 2GB of it in an octa-core phone is substantial, and we were wondering if Archos could have squeezed the cost enough to at least put 2GB of RAM in the octa-core 50c Oxygen.

The unique selling point of this device is the simplistic user interface. The overall screen will only contain six big icons for performing the routine every-day tasks. This includes icons for email, web browser, contacts, photos, messages, and one more for apps and settings.

If you update the contact using the phone’s contact editor, those updates will be reflected in OWA. The pre-release app is, however, highly constrained. Just as with the iOS apps, it requires a business Office 365 subscription; neither Office 365 Personal nor Office 365 Home are supported, nor is Outlook.com mail.
