After all, Blockbuster and Archos are both kinda, sorta, in the media and entertainment business. Nevermind the fact that normally when you purchase an Archos 10 you get a free credit at the Archos Media Club which lets you download music and movies from a service that competes with Blockbuster’s video store. It’s not quite clear from the press release whether you get that Archos Media Club credit when you purchase a Blockbuster model. But you do get an “embedded link to www.lockbuster.com.”
The Archos 10 will sell for $299.99 at Blockbuster stores. The netbook sports a 10 inch display, 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, Windows XP, and802.11b/g WiFi.
