We’ve already reported on the upcoming Android Archos internet media tablet, and in truth we still are awaiting official release date announcements and the full specification sheet. However, according to Register Hardware, Tony Limrick, Managing Director of Archos Northern Europe, advised those in attendance of their private London event held yesterday to keep 15 September free for an Archos IMT Android announcement. We can only presume this will be when everything is going public.
Other than that, there is little in the way to update you on. We still have no further word on specifications, so we can only guess as to whether the 500GB device will still fit into a 1cm think shell and offer 7.2Mb/s HSDPA with a 5-inch display. We sure hope so. Other specifications are said to include:
- 2Mb/s HSUPA
- Ability to play HD movies
- 7 hours of video playback time
- 800MHz Texas Instruments OMAP 3440 processor described as “laptop-like”
