We've always been semi-interested in the Media Tablet space and our interest was obviously piqued when Archos was rumored to make an Android-powered tablet device. And though we haven't exactly heard about the tablet for some time, it's good to know that a September 15th launch for the Archos Android Media Tablet is looking more and more likely. The Tablet will run Android but will also include some custom-built Archos software on top.

The rumored specs:

  • 5-inch display
  • 800MHz TI OMAP 3440 processor
  • 500 GB 
  • 7.2 megabytes HSDPA
  • HD-playback
  • 10mm thick
  • 7 hours of Video Playback

The specs certainly make the Archos Android-powered tablet more compelling but will it be enough to convince consumers to take the plunge? Or is your regular ol' Android phone good enough?

Archos Android Tablet Releasing in September


Should be interesting. I like the idea of tablet PCs. Science fiction of the 90's would then be a reality (I'm thinking "Earth: Final Conflict" in particular), especially since the internet and how it's used has expanded since then. I think more Android phones need to be in circulation before the public would take it seriously. A good marketing campaign wouldn't hurt either.

@Anonymous .. the picture is actually that of the Archos 9 Tablet which does run Win7. No pictures are available yet to my knowledge of the Android device they're planning on releasing in Sept.
