Back in May, we reported that Archos had unveiled an Android-powered laptop in the form of the ArcBook. There was no word on availability at that time, but it seems that it could be because the tablet was at the FCC receiving the necessary certification for it in order to be sold to the public, at least as far as the US market was concerned.
That is what’s been speculated because a recent FCC filing has revealed an Android-powered laptop made by Archos. The filing itself does not tell us much about the device or its specs, namely because Archos had asked for the details to be kept confidential. However unless Archos has another Android-powered laptop in the works, it is possible that we could be looking at the ArcBook.
For those who might have forgotten about the ArcBook, it is an Android-powered laptop with a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1024×600. It will be powered by a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2GHz and will be accompanied by 1GB of RAM. There will also be 8GB of onboard storage, a USB 2.0 port, and a sizeable 8,000mAh battery that should allow the laptop to run for a pretty long time.
As expected from a laptop, it will come with a QWERTY keyboard and will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Users will be able to access Google Play for their apps and will also be given 15GB of Google Drive storage, and will also get access to Office Suite Pro 6 that will come pre-loaded onto the device. Now we have no way of confirming if the device spotted at the FCC is indeed the ArcBook, but what do you guys think?
