Archos Announces 50 Cesium Smartphone With Windows 10 Onboard

Archos 50 Cesium

One of the first Windows 10 powered phones has been announced

French phone maker Archos has just unveiled two smartphones today: the 50 Cesium and Archos 50e Helium. While usually we tend to make two different posts for two different phones, that’s not the case for these phones simply because both devices are identical save for the OS powering them. The Archos 50e Helium is powered by Android while the 50 Cesium interestingly enough, is powered by Windows 10 – one of the first devices to be announced that carries Microsoft’s latest OS.
