Archos media event

Archos media event

French language website frandroid is reporting that Archos have confirmed the event that we mentioned a while back is on for September 15th. There is still the speculation that this IMT device probably does not have phone functionality, but we will have to wait till September 15th to be sure of what it does and does not have. What we have heard so far on the rumour mill is that the device will offer a 5-inch WVGA display and 500GB of storage in a 1cm thick body. Other specifications may include:

  • 2Mb/s HSUPA
  • 7.2Mb/s HSDPA
  • Ability to play HD movies
  • 7 hours of video playback time
  • 800MHz Texas Instruments OMAP 3440 processor described as “laptop-like”

We’ll keep an eye out on the 15th for you.
