Manufacturer’s Description

ARCHOS is once again bringing new technologies into the hands of its customers. The new ARCHOS 5 Internet Tablet is combining all the know-how and renowned expertise of multimedia with the hot new environment developed by Google™: the Android™ platform1.

Internet at its best
The ARCHOS 5 Internet Tablet is probably the best piece of hardware on the market to surf the web on the go. With its 5’’ screen and its 800×480 native resolution, the ARCHOS 5 Internet Tablet will let you surf the web just like on your PC, without the hassle of having to zoom in and out, turn the device, or try and adjust the size manually. And it’s truly fast, thanks the latest ARM Cortex Superscalar processor inside and its ability to connect to Wifi-N networks, or to tether via Bluetooth® to a 3G phone. If you add to that all the web related features, such as WebRadio, Email, or online videos, you probably have the best Web-oriented device on the market.

Applications just for you
In this new era of open source and collaboration, applications are blossoming throughout the world. Every day sees a new gold nugget that surprises and impresses Android users. That’s the magic behind the common and shared environment of Android™, anyone can create a best seller. There are so many fun games out there and so many cool applications that it would be a pity to not give you access to them. Enter the ARCHOS 5 Internet Tablet.

With its sleek design and advanced list of features, it truly achieves the convergence of the Internet, entertainment, TV, and GPS in one device, letting you discover and download lots of applications and games while giving the best multimedia experience of a handheld device.

Featuring a customizable interface, the ARCHOS 5 can be personalized to fit with your lifestyle, giving you a range of rich applications and widgets. And with the AppsLib, you have a supermarket of paid and free applications to download from, directly from your ARCHOS 5. Your favorite sources of information, communications and entertainment are always at your fingertips.

HD Multimedia
ARCHOS has always been praised for the quality of its devices. We consistently use the latest technologies, setting the standard for multimedia features. And when it comes to video, it would be hard to find an equivelent. The quality of the screen and the resolution (two and one-half times that of the majority of video players on the market) are clearly positioning the device at the very high end. And the number of formats and codecs accepted by this computer-like device is simply astonishing. The ARCHOS 5 IT has no rival for multimedia capabilities, be they HD video*, music, or photo browsing. The ARCHOS media widget also makes these features very accessible.

With storage sizes reaching up to 500 GB, your ARCHOS 5 IT can store up to 600 movies, 290,000 songs or 5 million photos. No need to be frugal, store everything on your ARCHOS.

GPS Navigation. Classic or Cutting edge?
For the 3rd year in a row, ARCHOS has equipped its flagship device with an optional GPS Navigation solution. But it’s a completely new experience. For starters, the GPS is built directly into the device. This means that you don’t need to be tied to a windshield. You can use it in pedestrian or adventure mode. There are also numerous 3D landmarks, which transform the journey you are taking into a whole new experience.

But there’s more to it with the 3D Photorealistic views of cities. It’s a fantastic way to discover a city while driving or walking through it. You’ll see the city just as if you were flying over it. With this ARCHOS 5 IT, discover what GPS truly means.

TV-Centric
The ARCHOS DNA has always included TV one way or another. The ARCHOS 5 IT is no exception to that. Thanks to the optional accessories such as the HDMI Minidock and the DVR Station, the ARCHOS 5 IT will become your one and only media center, letting you benefit from the exceptional quality of your HD TV to watch movies like never before, at full resolution. And with the DVR Station, you can record your TV and thus transform your TV experience into a mobility experience. Last but not least, the ARCHOS 5 IT lets you easily access over 1,000 webTV stations (and over 10,000 webradio stations).

You can also use your TV and your ARCHOS 5 IT as a PC. With an external keyboard (USB or Bluetooth™), you can leverage all the capabilities of your ARCHOS 5 IT and surf the web on your HD TV, or view presentations, spreadsheets or Word documents (and edit them in the near future). In a nutshell, the ARCHOS 5 IT will truly transform the way you use your TV.
