The Archos 5 Internet Tablet is one of the best multimedia tablets to be based on Android, something that can be attributed to Archos‘ extensive expertise in developing innovative home entertainment systems. And like the Dell Streak, its another tablet in the 5 inch category though its a 4.8 inch screen that it comes with precisely. The Archos 5 is also not a ‘new kid on the block,’ it being available at various online stores for quite a few months now. But the interesting thing is, it wasn’t featuring in Archos’s own ArchosStore site, this until now with the latest Tablet PC news indicating it has now been included in the French ArchosStore site where it is up for sale for 400 Euros. Quote the discount code ‘MOB15′ and watch the price drop down to 340 Euros.
Also, multimedia files gobbles up memory space, which is also the reason that Archos have endowed the tablet with generous memory capacity – 32GB – to store all of your multimedia files. That sure is a lot of space and should be enough for your music files though things might turn out to be a bit sticky if video files too are included in the scene. And the good news is, this too has been taken care of so that Archos has now included a 64GB SSD model to its lineup, though its only for France right now.This is a complete 100 percent jump from the 32 GB solid state disk that Archos 5 came with up till now.
It will be some time before the 64GB Archos 5 makes it to the US markets. There sure is the 500GB enabled Archos 5 that too can be availed of though its an older generation hard drive that it comes with.
