Archos A5S Android Internet Tablet from FCC Report Tip

Source: http://ping.fm/EXZp4

Archos’ Android-based Internet Tablet has been prematurely revealed, courtesy of the company’s FCC report.  The device – which resembles their existing Archos 5 PMP, but uses Google’s mobile OS – has been confirmed as the Archos A5S (7501), as well as having an untested sibling device, the A5H (7501).

The Archos A5S has WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and both an FM receiver and transmitter, together with a touchscreen and – going by the single image of the device powered on, which you can see in the gallery below – a custom UI on top of the standard Android interface.  While the FCC did not test any integrated 3G connectivity option, the (incomplete) user manual does suggest that at least one model will have it; it’s been speculated that this could be the differentiating factor of the Archos A5H.

There’s also a microSD card slot and microUSB ports.  We’re expecting the Archos Android MID to be officially announced on September 15th, hopefully with a price that puts it firmly in the “affordable companion device” category.
