Archos 32 Internet Tablet hits the FCC

Posted in Archos by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2010

Thanks to the FCC we now know what the Android-powered Archos 32 looks like. Looks like it is completely capacitive, with dedicated buttons and directional controls surrounding that 3.2-inch screen. It features built-in GPS, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a kickstand along with Bluetooth and WiFi.

It does have a microphone, but there’s no mention of a camera in the user’s manual. That circle on the back could be the integrated speaker. One of the accessories planned include a 720p-capable DVR dock, but the unit requires a proprietary connector to transfer data and charge.

Archos 5 Internet Tablet pulled by Amazon for problemsThe Archos 5 Internet Tablet has been available for just a couple of days, but now Amazon has stopped all orders for the 160GB hard drive-based Archos 5 device, placing the item “under review.”

Amazon says that “customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item”. This is not good news for Archos. However, the 32GB flash-based version is still available for pre-order. Hopefully the issues, whatever they are, can be fixed quickly.
