We already knew that Archos was planning to launch a new line of portable internet tablets running Google Android. Screen sizes are expected to range from 3 to 10 inches and prices should go from about $100 to $350.  They should have processors with clock speeds between 800MHz and 1GHz.

Now we have some new details, thanks to a product page at J&R.

The J&R page lists a device called the Archos 32 8GB, which will apparently sell for about $150. It’s described as “coming soon,” although there’s no word on what that means. There’s also no picture.

But here’s what we can glean from the listing. The handheld device will have a 3.2 inch touchscreen display, an 800MHz ARM Cortex A8-based CPU, OpenGL support, and 8GB of storage.

The Archos 32 8GB  has 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, an accelerometer, camera and mic, and support for a ton of audio and video codecs including MP4, H.264, WMV, MOV, 3GP, MKV, FLV, OGG Vorbis, FLAC, and AAC.

On the other hand, the display is limited to 400 x 240 pixels and I don’t see anything about RAM or battery capacity. It’s also not clear if the handheld device has a capacitive or resistive display. Still, for $150, this little guy looks pretty good.

Update: The J&R product page has been removed, but the Archos 32 has passed through the FCC on its way to general availability.

  1. I’m hoping for a 4.8 inch version with T-Mobile 3G (AWS band) support.

  2. HTC Tatoo and Sony Ericsson X10 Mini have 320×240 screens which is lower resolution than this and many users seem to be fine with Android on that resolution.
