Archos, the portable media player (PMP) supplier, is using the term Internet media tablet (IMT) to describe its latest generation of touchscreen-equipped, Wi-Fi-enabled handheld devices.
Compared to the company's previous-generation PMPs, the new devices add Texas Instruments' ARM Cortex A8 processor to provide PC processing speed, a more PC-like Web-browsing experience, access to email accounts and other enhancements, said senior VP/GM Ron Ferguson.
Two of the IMTs, the Archos 5 with 5-inch screen, and the Archos 7 with 7-inch widescreen, are also equipped to make a cable connection to cellphones or cellular modems to browse the Web and get email. A third model, the Archos 5G, incorporates W-CDMA HSDPA (high-speed downlink packet access) cellular technology for wireless Web browsing and email. All are available with multiple HDD capacities.
