Archos reveals 5, 5g, and 7 Internet Media Tablets


A bit later and rather different than expected, Archos has taken the wraps off of its new line of Internet Media Tablets today. The Archos 5, Archos 5g, and Archos 7 feature 16M-color WVGA touchscreens (4.8" and 7"), 30GB to 320GB hard drives, Opera web browser with Flash 9 support, ARM Cortex CPU, and a full range of codec support (including 720p HD content) with optional plug-ins. Full details of the HSDPA-equipped 5g haven’t been revealed yet, but just about everything you want to know about the 5 and 7 media tablets are up for the taking.




Pricing and availability have yet to be formally announced, but if a comment left on Engadget is to be believed, then here’s the "when" and "how much" for US consumers:

Archos 5: September, 60GB ($350), 120GB ($400), 250GB ($450)
Archos 7: October, 160GB ($450), 320GB ($550)
Archos 5g: December, 30GB ($550)

Head over to Archos Lounge for hands-on photos and even an iPhone comparison.
