  • Optimization of applications on the high-resolution screen of the ARCHOS 5 IT
  • New “Quick Search” to find your Apps, Music, Contacts, and browsing history and get suggested search results as you type
  • Easy access to battery saving features (wifi, screen, gps, etc.)
  • New version of office documents viewer (ThinkFree Mobile 1.2)
  • Various bug fixes, codec improvements, etc

Archos owners can download and install the update via the OTA update feature on their device or by following the instructions on Archos’ website.
