Aigo P8860 MID vs. Archos 5 PMP: Internet device battle

Aigo P8860 MID vs. Archos 5 PMP: Internet device battle

A few months back, when we wondered out loud about abbreviations, one of the easiest targets was the ultraportable device market.  Mobile Internet Devices, Ultramobile PCs, Personal Media Players; as manufacturers rush to grant their gadgets more functionality, all seem to end up overlapping.  The Archos Internet Media Tablet isn't a MID, not by Archos' own definition anyway, but it does offer internet access, on a touchscreen tablet, in a device that's certainly mobile.  Pocketables have been comparing the Archos 5 (soon to be available with integrated 3G WWAN, remember) with the Aigo P8860, a gadget which certainly does claim to be a MID.

Archos 5g HSDPA PMP French pricing leaks

Archos 5g HSDPA PMP French pricing leaks

Archos' latest range of Internet Media Tablets, the 5 and 7, are on sale in many markets worldwide, but if you want the 5g version with integrated HSDPA you'll have to head to France.  SFR is so-far the only carrier to have publicly signed up to the WWAN PMP; their official launch is expected later this week, but they've been scooped by November's issue of Stuff magazine.

Update: Stuff got the pricing wrong; see here for official details.

Archos 5 & 7 PMPs: fingerprint magnets but promising

Archos 5 & 7 PMPs: fingerprint magnets but promising

Archos' new PMP range has been long anticipated, and the first hands-on reports are already coming in.  GenerationMP3 spent some time with both the 4.8-inch Archos 5 and the 7-inch Archos 7, and despite the casings being real fingerprint magnets they've come away impressed.  Archos have apparently switched the audio processing chip and are claiming far better sound quality; they've also included both the Flash-compatible Opera browser and the WebTV & Radio plugin, which on previous models were paid options.

The Daily Slash: December 29 2010

Before all else, lets travel into the future - behold Technology Predictions for 2011 by supreme master predictor mister Ben Bajarin. Stay futuristic with another prediction by Chris Davies: 2011: The Year of Pentaband? Then come back to the now and here where a man punches a 15 year old in the arm for not turning off his iPhone.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 38 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 38 2009

Here we are again with another week in review, let's jump right in. A new 160GB Apple TV has popped up with better integration with iTunes 9. This is a good thing, I have one season of Heroes in HD on my 40GB unit and the thing is almost full. Samsung unveiled a new home theater projector this week called the P410M. With football season now going, a projector is a great way to watch the game with life-size players, assuming your room is large enough.

ARM netbook & MID chips coming; new deal with Ubuntu backers

ARM netbook & MID chips coming; new deal with Ubuntu backers

With AMD set to announced their netbook chipset strategy today, they're not the only three-letter company looking to take a bit out of Intel's Atom.  ARM have released details of their own plans, collaborating with Canonical - the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu - to optimize the Linux distro for the ARMv7 architecture.  ARM chips, such as the Cortex-A8 and Cortex-A9, are already found in multimedia and internet enabled devices like Archos' recent Internet Media Tablets, and the company believes that this - together with the chipsets' low power demands - will make them a force to be reckoned with in netbooks.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 34 2008

Intel have been holding their annual Developers' Forum in San Francisco this week, and quite a few prototypes and commercial products have come out to play. Of the former, most exciting seems to be the UrbanMax Tablet PC concept; of the latter, Viliv's S5 MID and S7 UMPC both promise to crank the netbook market up a gear or two.

That's probably not what Acer want to hear; the company has snipped pricing off of their Aspire One netbook, presumably remembering (only a little late) that the ultraportables are meant to be cheap. Not far from the shelves, Fujitsu's Amilo Mini and Dell's Inspiron 910 continued to leak information, but still no official word from the tongue-tied companies themselves.
