It’s not quite the Android@Home initiative we saw at Google I/O, but alongside a new generation of Honeycomb tablets Archos unveiled two new products that see Google’s mobile OS branching out to a couple non-mobile applications. The 35 Smart Home Phone isn’t a new concept as it places the Android OS within the confines of a touchscreen DECT landline handset. You can do pretty much everything you could on a Android smartphone, including syncing contacts, using your favorite apps, and web browsing. The 35 Home Connect Radio is battery powered with built-in WiFi. It gets access to over 50,000 web radio stations and can double as a touchscreen alarm clock with Android widgets for time, weather, and more. The 35 Smart Home Phone will sell for $159 when it launches in September The 35 Home Connect will be $149 when it hits shelves the same month.
