Moving onto the formats that the device supports, for video, VOB, MPG, AVI, FLV, RM, RMBV, MPEG-4, MKV and MOV of up to 720p. It can also support audio file formats of WMA, AAC, OGG, WAV, MP3 and WAV. As for photos it supports BMP and JPEG. You can read more about the specs here and here.
As we are all aware, eReaders have become insanely popular. The market doesn’t look to be drying up and as there aren’t too many recognized competitors for Nook and Kindle. This could be a great move for Archos. You can read more about the Archos 70b over at Engadget as well as over at Slashgear.
