Archos 5: The Linux Internet tablet for everyone

,----[ Quote ]
| If you want to buy one, they'll be available tomorrow, 
| September 16th, from Amazon and the Archos Web site. There is 
| one major caveat: this second-generation Archos 5 has the same 
| name as its predecessor and, just to look at it, you could 
| mistake it for its immediate ancestor. If you want to buy one, 
| make darn sure you're getting the new model. Prices range from 
| $249.99 for the 8GB device to $439.99 for the 500GB top-end 
| model.

| Archos is shipping the Android version of its media-oriented 
| Archos 5 Internet Tablet. The Archos 5 runs on a Texas 
| Instruments OMAP3x SoC and comes in flash (8GB to 32GB) or hard 
| drive versions (160GB to 500GB), with a 4.8-inch, 800x480 
| touchscreen, 720p video, GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth, says Archos.



Archos' Android Tablet Looks Imminent--and Slick

,----[ Quote ]
| That's the Android operating system running on this fairly slick looking
| ARCHOS tablet, which is concrete proof that Android is headed for more than
| just smartphones. As JKOnTheRun notes, the ARCHOS 5 Android-based Internet
| Tablet isn't scheduled to go on sale until September 15th, but online
| retailer B&H jumped the gun and has a 500GB version of it shown and listed on
| its site. The ARCHOS 5 is a 5-inch slate, and JKOnTheRun reports that at one
| time B&H listed both HDD and SSD models, with prices ranging from $294 to
| $420, depending on configuration. Those specs have since been removed.

| 500GB hard drive, 2GB RAM and a 6-cell battery built-in. Running Ubuntu 9.04.
| All for not much more than the Archos 10 with Windows XP, 160GB and 1GB of
| RAM: available for 375â at french retailer Surcouf.


Archos to announce Android device next month?

,----[ Quote ]
| So Archos will apparently be announcing something on June 11th in Paris and
| the general consensus is that itâll probably be the Internet Media Tablet
| with voice support running Android that was announced back in early February.


Archos intends to develop an Android Tablet

| for a portable media device that will run Googles open source Android
| operating system. The Archos Internet Media Tablet (IMT) is to be a
| multimedia player with Smartphone capabilities.


Archos 605 WiFi Linux hack

,----[ Quote ]
| Personally, I think the Archos 605 WiFi is a cool enough gadget on its own,
| but there's always something to be said for hacking a gadget just to explore
| the possibilities.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
