Every tech enthusiast has their eyes set on the Mobile World Congress 2018 event scheduled between February 26th to March 1st in Barcelona. There will be lots of gadgets and concepts available at the event apart from smartphones and tablets. One of the gadgets which has just been revealed is smart scooter from a French electronics company – the scooter is called Archos Citee Connect and it is the world’s first Android-powered smart scooter.
The Archos Citee Connect has been confirmed for the launch at MWC 2018 and it will reach the European market first, with global launch scheduled for later. The scooter will be priced at EUR 499.99 which is roughly Rs 40,000. The scooter has a top speed of 25 kmph and can run up to 25 kilometers at once.
The Archos Citee Connect comes with a 5 inches IPS display panel fixed on the handle. This is just like a smartphone which runs Android 8.0 Oreo which is the latest Android version. The Android part of the scooter is powered by a quad-core processor paired with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage.
The display panel also comes with a protection against bad weather and shocks, because it comes with Corning Gorilla Glass Protection as claimed by the company. The whole scooter weighs 13kg and the tires are 8.5 inches puncture proof with rubberized handles. There is a 250W motor which keeps the scooter going which is powered by a 6000 mAh (36V) Lithium battery. With one charge, the scooter can go upto 25KM.
There is also a custom braking mechanism which when enabled, can extend the battery life up to 15%. This is a great project by Archos in MWC 2018 because it will also keep our environment greener for longer.
