That Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet has proven to be a hackable little device. Back in early May, we talked about the Archos 5 getting an unofficial Maemo hack to replace Android.

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 clears FCC

Archos 7 Home Tablet clears FCC

We're expecting it to launch imminently, in Europe at least, but while we wait for the Archos 7 Home Tablet to finally arrive we can at least entertain ourselves with the freshly-published FCC report.  They've done their usual hack-job on the Android-based slate, with external and internal photos together with the full (if sparse) user manual to browse through.

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.

Archos A13PS ultraportable coming April; Archos 9 CPU update imminent

Archos' attempts at traditional notebook/netbook form-factors hasn't exactly been a runaway success so far, but they could have better luck with the new Archos A13PS.  Set to go on sale in April 2010, the A13PS distinguishes itself by using Intel's D510 processor, more commonly found in nettops than notebooks.

Archos 1 Vision PMP reviewed: cheap but definitely not cheerful

Archos 1 Vision PMP reviewed: cheap but definitely not cheerful

While fanboi debates rage just as strongly as they ever did, in general gadgets across the board are better designed, better constructed and better performing than we could've hoped for five or so years ago.  That's why it's so nice to find a real humdinger of a review for Archos' 1 Vision PMP, an MP3 player that anythingbutipod describe as having "bad build quality, awkward design, peculiar button placements, an undeniably unnecessary power switch, somewhat peculiar menus and an extra features set that might as well not have been there."
