Archos has been in the game of making Android tablets for quite sometime now and they have their share of a fan following. If you are  one of those, you will have reason for delight as the details on one of their upcoming tablet devices has just leaked thanks to JR.com.

The new tablet will be called the ARCHOS 32 and will have a rather small 3.2” 400×240 screen. It fits in the “tablet” category even though its similar to many other Android smartphones simply because it lacks a GSM/CDMA radio.

The ARCHOS 32 has an 800MHz ARM Cortex A8 with DSP under the hood and will support playback of video formats MPEG-4 HD (up to 720p, 24fps@12Mbps) / MPEG-42 (ASP@L5 AVI, up to DVD resolution, 24fps@12Mbps) / H.264 HD (HP@L3.1 up to 720p, 24fps@7Mbps) / WMV9/VC1 (AP up to 720p 24fps@10Mbps) / MJPG (Motion JPEG) in VGA resolution. This means you will be able to play video files with the extensions AVI, MP4, MOV, 3GP, MPG, PS, TS, VOB, MKV, FLV, RM, RMVB, ASF and WMV. Audio playback supports includes MP3 CBR & VBR / WMA, WMA-Pro 5.1 / WAV (PCM/ADPCM) / AAC, AAC+ 5.13 / OGG Vorbis / FLAC (With optional Software plug-in:AC3 5.1). There is also support for subtitles for the videos in the form of .srt, .ssa, .smi or .sub formats.

The built in camera can shoot video or snap stills at VGA resolution. For connectivity and access to the web, you get WiFi 802.11 b/g/n support, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and composite video output. One handy feature would be USB 2.0 Host support making external storage and external USB peripherals possible. For applications, the AppsLib store is included.
