Archos’ tiny A28 Android-powered Internet Tablet wins FCC approval


Last week we spotted the Archos 32 Internet Tablet on the FCC, and today an even smaller Android tablet called the Archos A28 made an appearance on the FCC as well.  Known as the “minidroid”, the device sports a 2.8” touch screen display, and will work in both portrait and landscape configurations, below, left.

imageUnfortunately, Archos’ FCC filings don’t provide much info about the device, and we’re not sure what version of Android it will run.  We do know that it will feature 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and what appear to be 8GB of Internal storage thanks to a Sandisk iNAND flash module.

The A28’s user manual shows screen shots of the device in use, below.  The device will have five home screens, although as you can see, the Android OS does look a bit cramped on the A28’s 2.8” screen.  The manual didn’t provide any pictures of a virtual keypad, and it will be interesting to see if a keypad is practical on such a small device.
