The Archos 5 Android Internet Tablet saga continues, with sales of the 5-inch PMP still partly frozen on Amazon while the company has also pushed out a new firmware update.  Amazon put the Archos 5 160GB on hold earlier this week after unspecified complaints from buyers; now the 500GB model has come into stock with the retailer, but shows no such sales-freeze.  According to ArchosFans, meanwhile, there's a new, stable firmware - version 1.1.01 - that addresses many early complaints from owners.

After beginning to ship out on Friday, Amazon have frozen deliveries of the Archos 5 160GB Android Internet Tablet.  According to the product listing, the touchscreen device is "under review", which Amazon explain could mean anything from shipping errors (wrong device, missing accessories, etc), incorrect item descriptions or, more worryingly, "something wrong with our inventory of the item", i.e. a problem with the Tablet itself.

ARCHOS Flip sounds like a Lenovo Yoga, look like one

If anything, ARCHOS is more known for its budgets smartphones, tablets, and beanies, but now it seems that the French manufacturer is ready to break out into a new market segment. Using the launch of Windows 10 as an opportunity, ARCHOS is announcing the Flip, what is practically a Cherry Trail powered budget-friendly convertible tablet/laptop hybrid.
