Also being an Archos it has a full range of accessories and downloadable add-ons from the Archos store. It already has a handful of applications installed onto the unit but obviously as its android base, no doubt a lot of third party apps will appear for download. The only downside is it doesn’t have HSDPA so the web connection will have to sought via wifi or you can piggyback a mobile 3G connection using bluetooth.
The Archos website only has the prices listed as £274.99 for the 32GB SSD version and £299.99 for the 160GB hard drive version.
