Archos 5 gets Firmware Update

Recently, I turned on my Archos 5 tablet for my nightly reading and found notification for the firmware update (1.7.77). Alas it’s still Android 1.6. The update went without a glitch but if you are wondering what was includes here’s rundown from the Archos support site:

  • Extended Bluetooth™ support for cellphone tethering (DUN and PAN)
  • System monitor application to close background apps or services and free up memory without affecting other running apps
  • Improved handling of WMV9-HD video files

Do any of you guys have the Archos 5?  Considering the Archos 7 when it comes out?  Thoughts on the Dell Mini 5 as compared?
