Archos 28, 32, 43, 70 & 101 Tablets Announced, Feature Android in Range of Sizes

We can probably safely assume at this point that tablets are here to stay. At least for awhile. And considering the effort that Archos has already put into the Android-based "tablet" market, there's no surprise here that they've just pulled the curtain off five (5!) brand new tablet devices, all featuring Google's mobile Operating System. Ranging in sizes and prices, as well as plenty of Archos-based "improvements" to the User Interface, meet the family of new Archos tablets.

Archos 1 Vision PMP reviewed: cheap but definitely not cheerful

Archos 1 Vision PMP reviewed: cheap but definitely not cheerful

While fanboi debates rage just as strongly as they ever did, in general gadgets across the board are better designed, better constructed and better performing than we could've hoped for five or so years ago.  That's why it's so nice to find a real humdinger of a review for Archos' 1 Vision PMP, an MP3 player that anythingbutipod describe as having "bad build quality, awkward design, peculiar button placements, an undeniably unnecessary power switch, somewhat peculiar menus and an extra features set that might as well not have been there."

Archos Phone Tablet axed over poor carrier support?

Archos Phone Tablet axed over poor carrier support?

Archos' Android-based Phone Tablet was meant to make an appearance at CES 2010 a few months back, and after it failed to show up there we assumed it would be spotted at either MWC 2010 or CeBIT 2010 this week.  That doesn't look to be the case, however - Archos have outed their new Home Tablets and a range of PMPs, but no smartphone - and according to French financial paper Les Echoes (quoted by LesMobiles) the device may in fact never launch.

Archos Vision Series PMPs: 1.4 to 4.3-inches

Not, perhaps, as interesting as the company's new Home Tablets, but Archos also have a line of new and updated PMPs to show at CeBIT 2010.  The Archos Vision Series ranges from the tiny 24g Vision A14VG, with a video-capable 1.4-inch LCD display, FM radio and 4GB of storage, to the 4.3-inch touchscreen Vision A43VB, with 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, 30hr battery and a video-output for playing content on a bigger display.

Archos 5 Internet Tablet gets Android 1.6 Donut with firmware v1.6.08 [Update: it's been pulled]

Archos have released a new firmware update for the Archos 5 Internet Tablet, v1.6.08, and the key change is the introduction of Android 1.6 "Donut".  With the new version of the OS comes the quick-search box for the MID/PMP's homescreen, improved power management, native WVGA display support and VPN functionality; Archos have also tweaked media handling, so that the Archos 5 Internet Tablet better supports H.264 SD and HD videos.

Update: Strangely, all mention of the update - including the firmware itself - has been pulled from Archos' site.
