Archos' A5 Details Sneak Out Courtesy of FCC

a5s_archosThe next time you see Archos, tell ‘em we said thanks!  It seems they decided not to sign a confidentiality agreement with the FCC and now we have some details on their forthcoming device.  We’ll have to wait a few more weeks for the full list of specs, but here’s what we know so far…

The FCC has tested two devices, the A5S 7501 and A5S 7502. The 7501 has 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and an FM transmitter and receiver. The user manual makes reference to 3G data but it was not tested. Engadget Mobile believes that that may be the difference between the two models and we’re inclined to agree. The image shows what appears to be a microSD slot and microUSB connection.

We like the idea of the A5S having FM transmitters. Who wouldn’t want to load their device up with music that can be played back in their car without cables? Check out the image below that shows (somewhat) how the UI will look. It definitely ain’t stock Android!
