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.

Archos 5 gets unofficial Maemo hack [Video]

Maemo might be evolving into MeeGo, but it's going by a circuitous route that takes in some Archos 5 play along the way, albeit unofficially.  A group of Archos tinkerers have been persuading Maemo (in its Mer form) to run on both the Archos 5 Internet Tablet (usually found running Android) and the Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet, and while it's not a perfect implementation it does at least function.

Archos 7 Home Tablet drops in 7 days time?

Archos promised we could expect the Archos 7 Home Tablet - announced back at CeBIT 2010 - sometime in April 2010, but it looks like the 7-inch touchscreen slate could be arriving in tandem with the iPad.  German retailer Redcoon.de reckon they'll have the Archos 7 HT in stock in a week's time, though it's the slightly more expensive 8GB model rather than the €149 ($203) entry-level 2GB version.

Archos 9 PC Tablet gets Atom Z515 1.2GHz update

Archos have got around to updating their Archos 9 PC Tablet with the promised 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z515 processor, boosting performance slightly over the original 1.1GHz chip.  Now available to order for $549.99 at the company's US store, it's unclear whether Archos have changed any other of the specifications - we're hoping for a faster hard-drive, frankly - since the spec page still details the older model.
