Archos Droid Book swings by the FCC
Android on a laptop isn’t necessarily a new concept. We’ve seen the Archos ArcBook, the Lenovo A10, and the HP Slatebook, and we may see another hit the shelves in the future to the tune of $170. Recent FCC filings suggest that perhaps a new model of the ArcBook will be launching soon, dubbed the Archos Droid Book.
Archos’ recent trademark on the “Droid Book” name and this FCC filling make quite a pair, pointing to the imminent release of this new 10-inch Android laptop. Whether the Droid Book will be a new addition to the ArcBook line or simply a standalone computer is unclear. We do, however, have some recently released specs from Archos regarding their next ArcBook laptop.
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
- 1.2 GHz Rockchip RK3168 ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core CPU
- 1GB of RAM
- 8GB of storage & microSD card reader
- 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive multitouch display
- 2 MicroUSB ports
- Stereo speakers and headset jack
- Webcam and mic
Android laptops certainly aren’t the biggest sellers, and who really knows if the line is a dying breed. We’re still happy to see Archos continue the support for this line of laptops.
