The device, which is a peculiar hybrid of an Android phone, alarm clock radio and a portable speaker, features:
- 4 GB internal memory + SD slot to extend memory (up to 16 GB cards)
- Android™ 2.2 Froyo
- Omap 3630 @ 1 GHz with OpenGL ES 2.0 graphic accelerator
- 3.5” TFT touchscreen
- MP3, FLAC, OGG, WAV
- JPEG, BMP
- Plays MPEG-4 AVI and most common video formats
- Records from the built-in front facing VGA camera equipped with a microphone
- 2 built-in High Definition Speakers, 3.5 mm audio jack
- Alarm clock, Weather forecast, TuneIn™ webradios, Traffic, Web browser, e-mail, AppsLib
- microSD slot, micro USB 2.0 High Speed, integrated Fast WiFi-n
- ARCHOS Home Connect, Integrated battery (not removable), Power Adaptor, micro USB Cable (2 m), User manual
So it's an Android based web radio, with a 3.5" capacitive touchscreen, a battery in case you want to move it around the house, 'high definition speakers' and remote control via your Android Phone... oh and a front facing camera for video conferencing potential (but probably no video calling apps preinstalled?). No Android Market access (and no Google Video Talk either), but i'm pretty sure it'll be possible to hack that on!
I must confess the device is somewhat intriguing, but not something i'm gonna purchase at the price! £50, maybe... do you agree?
