Archos has previously revealed their plans to heavily impact the tablet market, we have recentlty come across details regarding their new generation 8 tablet which will probably be called the Archos 32.
With a 3.2 inch display the Archos 32 is not going to be a direct competitor to the iPad, however it will apparently be priced at just $150, which may bring it some success.
Full specs have not yet been revealed, however rumors suggest its 3.2 inch display will feature a resolution 400 x 240, other specs include 8GB of internal storage, an ARM Cortex A8, WiFi, Bluetooth EDR and composite video output.
In terms of software and features the Archos 32 should meet most of your multimedia needs, as standard it will run Android 2.1, therefore should offer access to the Android store. In terms of file format support you can expect MPEG-4 HD (12Mbps) , H.264 (24fps), WMV and lots more.
To me this sounds more like a portable media player than a tablet, lets face it what functionality does this offer that an iPod Touch doesn’t?
What do you make of these spec rumors? Worth purchasing or would you just use a smartphone?
