The launch of the first Archos mobile phone seems to be delayed. Indeed, last September, the Archos’ director, Henri Crohas, announced that its Android smartphone, the “Phone Tablet”, should be exposed during the high-tech congress CES in Las Vegas and marketed in early 2010. However, the smartphone hasn’t been introduced at the show.
This phone is equipped with different accessories that are already known:
- a touchscreen of 4.3 inches (854 x 480 pixels)
- a TI ARM Cortex processor clocked at 1 Ghz and a compatible 3G+
- all for a thickness of just 10mm
According to an interview with Henri Crohas, the director said in the Expansion that if Archos has recently raised nearly 17 million euros, it won’t be easier for the brand, best known for its Internet tablets that for its smartphones, to enter the mobile market.
A question still remains in abeyance: when do these parterships with mobile operators will be signed?
Because of the fact that competition in the matter of Android smartphones is becoming increasingly fierce, four of the five global manufacturers of mobile phones suggest terminals which are equipped with Google’s mobile system.
What would be the Archos choices, it is only with the time that it will be unveiled to the public?
