Archos 2 PMP reviewed: dreary UI, design & battery rescued by price

The Archos 2 PMP may not have the Android OS we've all been patiently waiting for, and neither does it have the nifty touchscreen interface of its 3 Vision sibling, but that doesn't mean it can't be a reasonable, budget media player.  Generation MP3 have one in to review - in a hue unpleasantly bordering on puce - and have found that while the Archos 2 may not embody all the innovation we've come to expect from the company, it does hit the right price spot.

Having made its debut at the FCC a few weeks back, the new Archos 32 Android PMP/MID is getting further pushed into the limelight with a new set of information added to the Amazon preorder page.  From the spec list, we know the Archos 32 has 8GB of onboard storage, a 3.2-inch 400 x 240 resolution display, WiFi, Archos AppLib software download access, a web-browser supporting multitouch pinch-zoom, and an integrated camera for shooting photos and videos.

IFA 2007 – Archos introduce new PMPs across the board

IFA 2007 – Archos introduce new PMPs across the board

There was something for everyone at Archos' stand at IFA 2007 - well, if you wanted a PMP, that is - with a broad range of new media players catering for every spec-demand and budget.  Since I'm nothing if not greedy, I'll start at the top with the brand spanking new 605 WiFi and its swanky DVR base-station; we knew it was coming after it received FCC approval back in July, but there's nothing quite like seeing a 4.3-inch touchscreen toting, web-surfing, media downloading masterpiece in the flesh.

SlashGear grabbed some hands-on time with the two slates today, to see if they lived up to their lofty aspirations.

The Daily Slash: December 22 2010

Check out the full review of the cutest little Android you'll ever meet, LG Optimus U. Witness a wild little lawsuit as Google wins the Android trademark. See as both the face and the rest of the body of the HTC Incredible HD (Verizon LTE phone) are revealed in an obvious puzzle piece leak. Witness the breaking of Skype for a few hours today, basically bringing the entire internet to its knees (or so says users of Skype.)
