Archos 32 PMP pretends to be an Android tablet

We’re not exactly sure how a device with a 3.2″ display can be considered a tablet, but Archos seems to think it should.  The Archos 32 screams PMP, with a slim design and support for multiple file type playback, including AVI, MP4, MKV, MOV, WMV, and MPG.

In addition to the 3 inch screen, this “tablet” boasts Android 2.2, an 800MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and an internal microphone.

All this can be yours for only $150 bucks, although you’re only going to get 8 gigs of internal memory.  Oh well, I’m sure there’s some kind of market for a device like this, or at least I’m hoping there is for Archos’ sake.

    well.. people buy iPods even though most other mp3 players give you more memory for less money… this tab for me looks more or less like a “media player”, though, with all advanced phones around.. who wanna carry yet another gadget?

    ipod touch sells more than the iphone. There is a market. Who should decide what size a device can be called a tablet. Anything with a touch screen can be called a tablet.

    Archos 28 Internet Tablet is 2.3 times cheaper than the ipod touch. $99 and you don’t have to sign any $2000 2-year contracts. Archos provides the worlds cheapest ARM Cortex A8 45nm based Android 2.2 devices. There is no pretending. If you want larger screens, Archos has them up to 10.1″ capacitive, obviously not for as cheap as 2.8″ resitive tablet.
