Archos launching Android 3G PMP on June 11th?

Archos have announced a press event to be held on June 11th in Paris, France.  While there's no actual written confirmation of what the event might be about, the shadowy PMP/MID device visible on the invite and the bright green color-scheme has led to speculation that it concerns Archos' Android-based Internet Media Tablet (IMT) phone.

The company announced that they would be developing an Android device back in February, with the IMT measuring just 10mm thick and having a 5-inch high resolution touchscreen.  Connectivity will include not only WiFi, like existing PMPs from Archos, but 3.5G HSUPA/HSDPA for up to 7.2Mbps downloads.

Archos 5 Mini Dock reviewed: Cheap, flexible connectivity

It might seem overkill to have a whole separate review about a dock, but when said-dock adds stacks of functionality for a bargain price it's bound to be a popular accessory.  Jenn at Pocketables has been sitting her Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet in the $30 Archos Mini Dock, and if we're talking cost-to-flexibility ratio the Mini Dock sounds like it's off the scale.  In fact, only some ergonomic issues potentially hold the Archos Mini Dock back.
