Archos 7 Internet Media Tablet

I’ve always been interested in the Archos line of media devices.  They always seem to be highly recommended by those that use them.  Of course they do command a higher price than other alternatives.  Still, if you’re looking for a mobile media device/internet device, you may want to keep this one in mind.


Archos’ latest Internet Media Tablet is a sight to beyond. A year after releasing the 605 Wi-Fi portable video player, this new badboy sports glorious gunmetal casing, a touchscreen display (800×480 pixels) and weighs the same as a newborn baby (190x110x16mm, 640g). Available in two different capacity options – 160GB (£299) and 320GB (£349) – the Archos 7 offers the largest hard drive of any handheld media player and enough space to hold up to 300 full-length movies, thousands of songs, or millions of photos. It’s also the only 7-inch handheld tablet equipped with PC-like performance and the world’s first implementation of the ARM Cortex 600MHz superscalar microprocessor. As you’ve guessed by now, this is no kid’s toy.
