Archos 35 Home Tablet

The Archos 35 Home Connect is sort of a cross between a clock radio, a portable stereo, and an Android smartphone. Seriously. It’s little little device with a 3.5 inch touchscreen display, two relatively large speakers, and Android 2.2 Froyo. It can stream music from thousands of internet radio stations, view weather forecasts, or simply work as an alarm clock.

But you can also use the device to view pictures, watch videos, play games, or just about anything you can do with an Android phone except make calls — although if you have an internet connection handy you could use the built-in mic and camera to make VoIP voice and video calls.

Archos introduced the 35 Home Connect at an event in France last week and YouTube user BBeennnnyy7788 captured a little video which you can check out below.

It appears the Home Connect has the custom music player that Archos has been using for its touchscreen tablets for a little while. There’s also an interesting photo slideshow app. Internet radio functionality seems to be handled by the TuneIn Radio app.

In the later portion of the video you can also see the Archos 35 Smart Home Phone. It looks like a cheap Android cellphone, but it’s actually designed to replace your land line, not your cellphone.

    1. Pretty much, with a little more potential given all the apps you can get for Android and perhaps depending on how easy it will be to root.
