What plays music, has a large touchscreen, Wi-Fi and isn’t called an iPod Touch? Why, it could only be the Archos 5g Internet Media Tablet. Other than the above mentioned features, the Archos 5g adds one thing the iPod Touch (and even the iPhone 3G) lacks – 3.5G HSDPA network support.
Yup, you read that right. The latest portable media player to come out of Archos’ labs features 3.5G HSDPA, as well as a 4.8-inch 800 x 480 pixel screen, on which you can touch your way through up to 250GB of files. Or you can opt for the lesser endowed, 30GB base version. Both should work with Wi-Fi networks just fine.
With a nearly 5-inch screen, the Archos 5g adds only a tad bit more of screen real estate when compared to the iPod Touch (against which it so blatantly competes), but with added pixels in its screen resolution as well there’s no telling just how significant a change there would be in the viewing experience.
This new Internet Media Tablet should also let you manage your e-mails and download music/videos whenever and wherever you want. Though for how much, we still haven’t confirmed. Stay tuned for more on the Archos 5g Internet Media Tablet, ok?
