It appears that Amazon has recently reduced the price of the Archos 5 Internet Tablet Android. The award, which was originally $ 499 has been lowered to $ 299, which means a saving of $ 200 rather nice. Whereas only, it sounds like a good deal, but it can not be the tablet that you hoped for Android.
Firstly, if the specifications of the Archos 5. This unit, as told by the name has a 5-inch screen. More precisely, it is a 5 inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. Other features include a Cortex A8 processor at 800 MHz, 256 MB RAM, 500 GB hard drive, Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth 2.0 EDR with A2DP, an FM receiver, microphone, headphone jack up built-in speakers and a stand at the back.
And like other Archos devices – there are a variety of support for file formats, making it a pretty good portable media player both in terms of audio and video. However, the catch comes in the form of Android – currently the Archos website noted that Android 1.6. Still according to the various user forums, there was a firmware update available just a few things that helped a little.
As to what is the device that you had hoped. First, the price is right, $ 299 for a portable device with 500 GB of storage and a 5-inch screen just seems to me. Of course, there is news of the Android Internet Tablet devices off and while they are not all available now, they have (or will) Android 2.2. Of course, we can not help but point out that the new range Android Internet tablet contains neither a 5-inch device or a device with an option to store 500 GB.
