Archos Gen-8 Internet Tablets detailed

Archos had already spilled the beans on their plans to flesh out the Internet Tablet range this coming summer, but the company's recent travels to China have outed a few new tidbits along the way.  Apparently Generation 8 of the Archos Internet Tablet range will consist of six new models, with screen sizes ranging from 3- to 10-inches and prices from $100 to $350.

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 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 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 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."

Archos Phone Tablet axed over poor carrier support?

Archos’ Android-based Phone Tablet was meant to make an appearance at CES 2010 a few months back, and after it failed to show up there we assumed it would be spotted at either MWC 2010 or CeBIT 2010 this week.  That doesn’t look to be the case, however – Archos have outed their new Home Tablets and a range of PMPs, but no smartphone – and according to French financial paper Les Echoes (quoted by LesMobiles) the device may in fact never launch.

Archos Vision Series PMPs: 1.4 to 4.3-inches

Archos Vision Series PMPs: 1.4 to 4.3-inches

Not, perhaps, as interesting as the company's new Home Tablets, but Archos also have a line of new and updated PMPs to show at CeBIT 2010.  The Archos Vision Series ranges from the tiny 24g Vision A14VG, with a video-capable 1.4-inch LCD display, FM radio and 4GB of storage, to the 4.3-inch touchscreen Vision A43VB, with 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, 30hr battery and a video-output for playing content on a bigger display.

Archos 9 PC Tablet getting 1.2GHz CPU update; capacitive screen & 3G in the works?

The Archos 9 PC Tablet – plagued by launch delays and partially scuppered with underperforming components – may not be the star of CeBIT 2010 this week, but according to a talkative employee from the company it’s scheduled to get a refresh relatively soon.  The rep told jkkmobile that the Archos 9 will see its CPU updated to a 1.2GHz chip, bringing with it HyperThreading support, an improvement in the GPU and a faster bus speed.  Meanwhile, down the line there are apparently even bigger changes afoot.

Archos 7 Home Tablet gets hands-on video: surprisingly good

Archos 7 Home Tablet gets hands-on video: surprisingly good

The prospect of a 7-inch Android internet tablet running a relatively laggardly 600MHz ARM9 processor left us doubtful about Archos' new Archos 7 Home Tablet, but according to a very enthusiastic Charbax we shouldn't be so concerned.  He's been playing with the Archos 7 for a few days now, and is reporting reasonable browsing speeds, 720p HD playback and 7hrs usage from a full charge.

Archos 7 and Archos 8 Home Tablets official: €149 but sluggish CPUs

Archos 7 and Archos 8 Home Tablets official: €149 but sluggish CPUs

Archos have officially announced their so-called Home Tablets at CeBIT 2010 this week, and there's good news and bad.  The Archos 7 Home Tablet and the Archos 8 digital photo frame each run Android, just like the Archos 5, but they have sluggish ARM9 processors rather than any of the more speedy SoC's we've seen on other tablets lately.  Archos' trick, though, is in pricing: the two devices are €149 ($203), making them reasonably budget friendly.
