Archos Vision PMPs in the wild

Live images of Archos' latest Vision PMP range have appeared, courtesy of Archos Lounge, and they go some way to proving the old adage that clever angles can make an ugly device attractive.  Our main issue is with the Archos 2 Vision, shown here on the right, which in the press shots looked slick and clean but in the plastic, well, have overly-protruding buttons and seem a tad bland.

Archos Android Internet Tablet event announced for September 15th

As promised, Archos have announced that they will be holding a press conference on September 15th where star of the show will be their new Android Internet Tablet.  The company has also launched AppsLib, a new directory for developers and the Android apps they create for "high-end Android devices"; that site lists development guidelines for the touchscreen device as using a 5-inch WVGA display, with 720p video support, an HDMI output and native OpenGL libraries.

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

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.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 24 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 24 2009

After Palm's big moment last weekend, Apple once again seized the headlines with their WWDC 2009 keynote on Monday morning.  We showed up to liveblog the whole announcement, expecting a new smartphone, and the company delivered in the shape of the iPhone 3G S - twice the speed, twice the storage, and the same styling as the iPhone 3G - together with a launch date for iPhone OS 3.0.  However, Apple weren't content with just that: they also brought along a new MacBook Pro range complete with integrated batteries; check out our video unboxing and first-impressions.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 21 2009

The SlashGear team have been surprisingly mobile this week, with part one of our Lincoln MKS road-test, and toting Sprint's version of the MiFi 2200 portable EVDO hotspot around.  We still found enough time to get frantically excited about the Palm Pre, though, which we now know will launch on June 6th for $199.99. 

That excitement is tempered with the ongoing rumors that stocks may be severely curtailed on launch day.  Not only have Best Buy and RadioShack insiders been talking of minimal handset numbers come June 6th, Sprint's own CEO is warning that the Pre will likely be in short supply for the first couple of months.  The concern is that all of Palm's momentum since CES back in January could fizzle out, as Apple are expected to announce a third-generation iPhone two days after the Pre's launch.
