Archos 5 Internet Tablet gets official

Archos has gone all official with its new Archos 5 Internet Tablet. The tablet has a large screen that supports HD resolution for media and has a built-in TV recording function. GPS is also built into the device and it runs the Android operating system. The screen is a 5-inch high resolution unit with a full internet browser to rival the surfing experience you get on a computer. The Archos 5 is available with up to 500GB of storage capacity for movies and apps.

Archos has also announced its own app store called AppsLib Store that provides access to free and paid applications developed specifically for the 5-inch screen device. The tablet will also ship with several apps preinstalled as well. The tablet also features Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for accessing the internet via a mobile phone.

The processor is an ARM Cortex A8 from Texas Instruments and the screen has a resolution of 800 x 480. The tablet will be available in late September starting at £199.99 and going up to £349.99 depending on the configuration.
