Manufacturer's Description

The brand new ARCHOS 2 is full of surprises.

It’s an all-in-one affordable credit card sized device. With 8 GB of disk space, lyrics display and photo viewing, it’s the perfect music companion.

Large inside, small outside
Music addicts finally have the product they’ve been waiting for: a small, very reasonably priced player featuring up to 8GB of disk capacity to store up to 4,000 songs*. We’re talking about days of non stop music! Need more? Well, the ARCHOS 2 also hosts a MicroSDHC card slot so that you can add more music to the already huge amount that you’ve got. It’s compatible with MicroSDHC (HC meaning High Capacity) and standard MicroSD cards, so you can add plenty more music to your player.

It’s really easy to organize it with the music library settings, letting you choose by artist, album or title. In a nutshell, the essentials. And since you’re asking it to play the most popular music files such as MP3 and WMA3, your ARCHOS 2 has you covered.

You can also clearly show your photos on the 1.8’’ screen. Sure the ARCHOS 2 is mostly about music, but why not keep a few dozen photos with you? It’s a lot easier than carrying a 7’’ photo frame in your pocket, isn’t it?

And since there is a nice little screen, we added lyrics files compatibility so that you can read what you are listening to, at all time.

Speak after the tone
Most discoveries and inventions have a part of randomness and serendipity in them. So we figured it was important that you could record your thoughts at the moment you have them. That’s why we equipped the ARCHOS 2 with a microphone. So that any thought crossing your mind can be available for a second and deeper review.

Of course, it’s more likely that you’ll use it to record directions or phone numbers. Just grab your ARCHOS 2, and speak after the tone.

*On average; songs based on 3.5 mins/song & 64 Kbits/s WMA, photos based on JPEG.
