Archos teases us with Android-powered phone tablet

At its recent press event in Paris, Archos presented its first Android-powered device – Archos 5 Internet Tablet. It’s not something we at care about much, but there was one thing that was also shown at their presentation – an image of the upcoming phone tablet. We don’t have all the details at this stage but we do know the following:

  • It will run Android
  • It will feature a 4.3-inch touchscreen (hopefully capacitive)
  • It will be powered by a 1GHz ARM CPU (Snapdragon?)

In a nutshell, Archos is preparing to hit the mobile phone market and hit it hard. If they manage to make every piece of the puzzle fit correctly, they may have a global winner. I’m certainly hoping to see some company bringing Android to the “WVGA century”… and make a new device work as phone, as well. 😉

    It says ARM Cortex on the pic…hence, it´s not a Tegra.

    If it’s a 1GHz OMAP3640 then that would be very swank. The picture above does tend to suggest it’s a Cortex and not a Snapdragon.
