Android 1.6 Donut finally hits Archos 5 Internet Tablet

Archos have again released the Android 1.6 Donut firmware update for their Archos 5 Internet Tablet.  This marks the second attempt for the company, who briefly released an update back in December 2009 before promptly yanking it over a "major issue" with the web browser. The update brings with it all of the non-cellular improvements we're used to seeing in Android 1.6: a new Quick Search feature and improved power management are likely the two biggest draws for Archos 5 owners.  However there's also improvements in media file support, a new version of the ThinkFree Mobile documents viewer, and better UPnP support over WiFi.  There's a full changelog here.

Archos Phone Tablet upcoming Android smartphone/PMP hybrid

The Archos 5 PMP was undoubtedly the star of the French company's launch event yesterday, but they couldn't help but tease with another new device.  The Archos Phone Tablet is, as the name suggests, a PMP/cellphone hybrid; in this case, it runs Android on a 1GHz ARM Cortex CPU, with integrated 3.5G for voice and data access. According to the scant information Archos gave us, the Phone Tablet will have a smaller display than the Archos 5 - 4.3-inches versus 4.8-inches - but a slightly higher resolution of 854 x 480.  It will measure just 10mm thick, and we were also shown an image of the rear of the Phone Tablet that indicated a camera; there also appears to be a front-mounted camera, likely for video calls. We'd also expect to see a fair chunk of flash storage in there - the Archos 5 packs up to 64GB - for media use.  Archos have been close-lipped on when exactly we might expect to see the Phone Tablet arrive, but we'll not argue with another Android-based smartphone.

Archos launch 5 Android Internet Tablet: hands-on video & gallery

It's not all phones running Android; yesterday Archos announced their much-anticipated Android-based PMP, the touchscreen Archos 5 Internet Tablet.  Packing a 4.8-inch resistive touchscreen, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth and a choice of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of flash storage or 160GB or 500GB of hard-drive based storage, the Archos 5 has a custom UI designed by the company to sit on top of Android. Both local and streaming network content is supported, and the Archos 5 also has the usual Android web browser for internet access.  Since the PMP lacks integrated 3G, Archos have made it straightforward to tether your cellphone via Bluetooth when there's no WiFi around; you can also use the Bluetooth to hook up a keyboard and mouse, while Archos also offer HDMI docks that will output 720p HD video (and browsing at 1,280 x 720 resolution) on your TV. An optional DVR Dock allows you to record TV or other video directly onto the Archos 5; pricing for the PMP itself ranges from $250 to $440.  For hands-on first-impressions of the Archos 5 Android Internet Tablet check out our SlashGear post.

Archos 5 internet tablet gets unofficial pricing

We have been drooling over those Archos Android-powered Internet tablets for a while now. We already know quite a bit about them and the only real piece of information that we needed was how much the internet tablet would cost. CNET has some unofficial pricing up for the devices gleaned from a very short stint live on the B&H website yesterday. The Archos 5 will be offered in 16GB, 32GB, 160GB, and 500GB varieties for $293, $369, $319, and $419 respectively.

FCC outs Android-powered Archos tablet

You have to love those hacks over at the FCC. They seem to be incapable of not leaking a product ahead of its official announcement as they are testing it for compliance with all the wireless regulations in America. The FCC has become a constant source of information on new products. The latest outing by the FCC is Archos' Android media tablets. The things sure look sexy in the FCC tests. The two Archos tablets are the A5S and the A5H. The A5S is reportedly the version in the picture above.

FCC report tips Archos A5S Android Internet Tablet

Archos' Android-based Internet Tablet has been prematurely revealed, courtesy of the company's FCC report.  The device - which resembles their existing Archos 5 PMP, but uses Google's mobile OS - has been confirmed as the Archos A5S (7501), as well as having an untested sibling device, the A5H (7501). The Archos A5S has WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and both an FM receiver and transmitter, together with a touchscreen and - going by the single image of the device powered on, which you can see in the gallery below - a custom UI on top of the standard Android interface.  While the FCC did not test any integrated 3G connectivity option, the (incomplete) user manual does suggest that at least one model will have it; it's been speculated that this could be the differentiating factor of the Archos A5H. There's also a microSD card slot and microUSB ports.  We're expecting the Archos Android MID to be officially announced on September 15th, hopefully with a price that puts it firmly in the "affordable companion device" category.
