Google’s mobile operating system is awesome for consumers, but one of the greatest opportunities to capitalize on Android is for device manufacturers. Companies that might not otherwise share the global spotlight can really shine by crafting something spectacular and ARCHOS appears to be doing just that. A couple weeks ago the company announced their ARCHOS 5 Internet Tablet and hinted at an ARCHOS Android Phone… now we’re seeing the former being unboxed and the latter in an event/presentation video!
Let us start with the phone. The video is in French and although we love us some Eiffel Tower we can’t understand a single word being said (and unfortunately we can’t Google Translate the audio):
But what we CAN gather from the video:
- 4.8-inch touchscreen
- 854×480 resolution
- 3.5G Connectivity
- 1 GHz ARM Cortex processor
- Ultra thin at 10mm thick!
Based on that last little “We’ll see you at CES 2010” I’m hoping we see a launch around that time frame. We got this news bit via tip to the youtube video and it clearly comes from FrAndroid.com but we could not track down a corresponding news article on the site for details. If there are any details our French speaking phandroids can spout out in the comments we’ll be happy to add them to the main article!
Whoops we almost forgot – a few pictures from the Stuff TV ARCHOS 5 Internet Tablet Unboxing!
