After Barnes & Noble’s NookColor, its now Archos that has lined up an e-reader running Android at the FCC. The similarities does not end here as the Archos e-reader also features an LCD display, measures 7 inches and also seems to be capable of playing back video and image files in full color.
Apart from these, the very few specifications of the e-reader (bearing model number 7702) that has come out in the open include 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, a USB port, stereo speakers, along with an SD card slot. Furthermore, the 70b e-reader will also be Adobe Digital Editions DRM compliant, which means the upcoming e-book reader will support the Google eBookstore that was just launched the other day.
More on this is awaited.
