Android-based Archos Internet Media Tablet phone coming this year


Texas Instruments issued a press release today about an upcoming Archos Internet Media Tablet, scheduled for release in 3Q 2009, that will use its OMAP3 processor and be the offspring of a union between "Google's Android telephony stack and the Archos multimedia framework." The 0.39-inch thin device will feature a 5-inch high resolution display (presumably WVGA), integrated 3.5G connectivity, up to 500GB of storage, 7-hour video runtime, HD video support, and a "PC-like Internet experience" with Adobe Flash and full-screen Flash video playback.

Basically, then, an Android phone in an Archos 5/5g body. Given the screen size, I'm going to take a wild guess and say that the new device will also feature Bluetooth so you won't have to hold that whirring hard drive up to your face to make a call.
