Archos Bringing Android to Internet Media Tablet
Archos has announced a 500GB, ultra-thin media tablet that will run Android for release later this year.
Promising PC-like performance, the 10mm thin tablet will also support Adobe Flash on a high-res 5″ screen. According to Pocket-Lint, the device will have all of the same features as an Android smartphone, in addition to the Archos multimedia goodies.
Our friend Charbax points out that this should pair Android with the best features of Archos media tablets, enabling things like:
- Full DivX and all video codecs playback up to HD resolutions
- Video recording like a Tivo
- Portable DVB-SH TV reception
- Large high resolution screen
He goes on to say, “All that at about the same price as those crappy low-featured iPhones and HTC G1 phones.” Well put.
Look for the tablet to land in the 3rd quarter of this year.
