Archos 43 PMP Now Available to Pre-Order

The Archos 43, better to be called a Personal Media Player due to its smaller size, is one of the five new "tablet" devices that Archos was excited to announce to the world not too long ago. And, it looks like the company is trying their best to keep their word of a mid-October launch date, as the PMP has just gone up for pre-order courtesy of Amazon.

Phillips GoGear Connect Hands-On [Video]

We have gotten a chance to get our hands on another device at IFA-2010, which is a PMP player by Phillips called the GoGear Connect. First we will start by saying we are not quite sure why Phillps did not go ahead and make a phone out of this, maybe that is the next step for them. The PMP player is very much competition for the iPod Touch and the Zune and looks like it will be very competitive with both devices.

Philips GoGear Connect On Sale Across the Pond

If you've been waiting for an Android-powered Personal Media Player (PMP), but don't have the patience for Samsung to bring you their Galaxy Player, then maybe the GoGear Connect from Philips would be a better choice. (Which we first saw back in February.) That is, if you find yourself in Europe, and not in the United States. It looks like Philips has managed to bring the Android 2.1-powered PMP to digital retail shelves across the pond, if this new screenshot from Argos is any indicator.

Samsung YP-MB2 Poses for Another Photo

The Personal Media Player from Samsung, better known as the YP-MB2, still exists. It's not just some cruel joke that Samsung is playing on all of us. And just to make sure that we all know that, it's lined itself up for some more photos. It's still looking just as good as ever, especially with that 4-inch Super AMOLED display. We're beyond excited for the iPod Touch competitor, and we wish we were one of the lucky individuals overseas that reportedly has the device in hand.

Archos 32 Media Player Now Available to Pre-Order

Archos is putting a lot of faith into Android, as we've seen from plenty of their "tablets" (better known as Mobile Internet Devices, perhaps). So, when we finally see the Archos 32 make its way to pre-order status (after just being unveiled, in the Gen8 category of devices, mind you), with its 3.2-inch touchscreen and Android goodness, we find ourselves at a strange middlepoint. To get excited, or to not get excited, that is the question.

Samsung YP-MB2 Poses for Photo

When it comes to the Samsung manufactured YP-MB2, all we've seen up until now are some screenshots, and heard a few rumors here and there about the supposed feature-set of the Personal Media Player. Positioned as a true contender for the personal media crown (up against those iDevices, you know), we've been waiting for the longest time to get a "real" shot of the device. And, on a Monday, here we are, staring right at it.

Viliv’s AMOLED Prime P3 Android media player

Viliv has manufactured many different types of PMP’s and Mp3 players. This rendition has the ability to run Android as well as Windows CE. This media player has a beautiful screen and can run Android 2.1. The only thing missing so far is a release date and price.

RAmos Launches HD Video Recording-capable PMP

Not much is known about this PMP, it's rumored to be running some variation of Android but there is no solid evidence of that as of yet. It is a great looking piece of hardware and if Android is indeed the chosen OS, this will be a welcome addition to the Android family. It has 720p and 1080p video playback, a 7-inch (800 x ×480) display screen and an HDMI out. There is also support for many different types of media such as, RMVB, AVI, WMV, VOB, FLV, and MPG for starters. There is no set price, I would image that it will not be a cheap device.This is a great choice for all your multimedia needs. [via ramos]

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.
