I have been a fan of the Archos Media players. Although out-shined by the ever popular iPod series, I still love the way Archos Innovates. Much as equally loved as Creative Labs Media Players, Archos Media players also have killer feature sets. And since it seem to be a trend to have touch-screen, internet-ready all-in-one media machines, Archos introduced their own: The Archos 5. They also started naming their products by the number, as in Archos 5, Archos 7 and the like.
Ultimate Portable Media Device?
Their catch phrases found on their site at www.archos.com are the simplified way of showing what it can do. Uncompromised web surfing in the Palm of your hands. (If there is such a word as Uncompromised). Your entire digital library in a thin handheld tablet. (Meaning it is a tablet, which means it has touch-screen and the entire digital library means Music, Photos, Videos and all data files). The ultimate TV experience at home or on the go. (So you can plug it in your TV to watch, and plug in to your Cable box to record movies and schedule them like TiVo when you want to watch your favorite channel programs later at 720p which is technically HD). You can get more details of the Archos 5 on the Official site.
