Logic Instrument launches new enterprise Android devices with guidance of Archos

I know that it is probably just an early rendering that doesn't represent the final product, but the phone only appears to be running ICS...

According to the article, Archos is on their board of shareholders. So it makes sense for Archos to provide the guidance.

Yea, being guided by Archos... wouldn't that be like the blind leading the blind?

I often feel a little bad for Archos. I had a few of their very early Personal Video Recorders, and they were pretty remarkable for their time, and built quite well. In fact, I still have one and it works to this day, going on 10 years old now.

But their products went WAY down hill, at least for a while - using resistive touch screens long after everyone else went with capacitive, using low quality displays, etc. They seem to release so many products... you have to wonder how they might do if they focused on 1 or 2 high quality ones instead.

Shouldn't thru focused on getting it approved by defense departments before they pull a Knox?
