archos-netbookYou know netbooks are hot ticket items when companies that normally don’t even produce computers are getting in on the action. While it’s still not clear if electronics maker Coby is preparing a low cost mini-notebook, it does look like Archos plans to bring one to market.

Archos is generally better known for producing portable music and video players. But French site Blogeee has pictures of what looks like an Archos netbook.

There’s not much info available about the netbook yet. It appears to feature a 10.2 inch display, USB ports, a flash card reader, a mic input and headphone output. And it could be a photographic trick, but it looks liek the trackpad is a bit off center, which is rather unusual.

Update: It looks like this is a rebranded Hasee MJ125 netbook.

  1. Interesting. I wonder if it will be based on Atom or an ARM core (Cortex-A8?).
    If its based on an ARM core hopefully Archos will have enough intelligence to put a real OS on it (Debian? Ubuntu?) instead of putting a crippled (or worse .. completely locked) OS on it as they do on their Archos 5 and Archos 7 Internet Media Tablets.

  2. The Aspire One’s trackpad is off centre as well, so I don’t think it’s that unusual. In any case, an Archos netbook would certainly be interesting.
