We all know that iPhones and a few other handheld devices can play songs, videos and possibly stop third world poverty. And more new gadgets are hitting the market that do even more with sharper screens and faster processors.
Archos has been in the portable media player business for several years but their new Archos 5 is a big leap forward. The company calls this latest product an Internet Media Tablet with instant access to the Internet, media and TV.
The device is small enough to fit in your hands and comes with storage options from 60GB to 250GB. It can play all formats of digital music, display photos, WiFi, built-in speaker and has a long battery life.
The WiFi connection allows for emails and web surfing which look great on the high-resolution screen. The Archos 5 may not do a thing for third world economies but you will be able to have a lot of fun with it.
