It seems that Archos has opened up its own application store for Android devices (especially, I assume, its own).  The first application to be offered there is DroidIn, a LinkedIn client for the Android platform.  Only free applications are supported by the store at this point. The latest rumors have the Archos IMT device being officially launched on September 15, 2009.  That’s not so far away.

If we’re right, this device is reported to offer a 5-inch touch screen display with up to 500gb of built in storage. At only 1cm thick, it’s a real treat as it allegedly offers HSDPA and HSUPA downloads and uploads on compatible 3G networks. Rounding things off…
