Archos’ Android-powered 32 Internet Tablet makes its way through the FCC
News of Archos’ 32 Internet Tablet emerged earlier this month, and today the device made its first appearance on the FCC. The device runs Google’s Android 2.1 OS, and features a 3.2” touch screen with a 400 x 240 resolution, 8GB of internal flash storage, an ARM Cortex A8 processor, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and composite video out. The device can also be upgraded with a digital TV receiver that enables live TV and DVR features.
Screenshots of the Archos 32’s interface, below, show a familiar Android OS interface with a custom multimedia icon dock (#3). There’s no indication if the device will have access to the Android Market.
The Archos 32 seems like a legitimate competitor to the iPod Touch, although with only 8GB of storage you won’t be able to fit much media on the device. External storage is not supported on the Archos 32, either.
