FCC gets hold of Archos 32 Internet tablet

The Archos 32 tablet with 8GB of internal memory which was leaked some time last week has finally made its way to the FCC, where it is confirmed to run on Android 2.1 – hopefully with Android 2.2 ready to rock and roll in due time. Its 3.2″ display at 400 x 240 resolution is a disappointment in this day and age, as we would have liked to see something with at least 4.3″ of viewing real estate. Multitouch display smartphones have a much better display size and resolution, which might require the Archos 32 to have a top notch marketing plan if it were to sell well. Other hardware specifications include an ARM Cortex A8 processor, GPS navigation capability, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as well as composite video out. If you so desire, it can be upgraded to include a digital TV receiver which enables live TV and DVR features. No idea on whether the Archos 32 can access the Android Market or not, and it has a $150 price range bandied about to date. It might provide some competition to the iPod touch, but we don’t see it usurping any other established models in the market at the moment.
