Archos 32 Android-powered Tablet Makes First Appearance on FCC

August 11, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you thought all the talk about of the Android-running Archos 32 was just a flash in the pan, think again. A look at the FCC listings would reveal more details of the device that is expected to come to our midst soon. The Archos 32 Internet Tablet looks like it would sport a capacitive display and there would be dedicated buttons and directional controls around the 3.2-inch screen.

As per the FCC filing, the device would arrive with capabilities that boast of built-in GPS and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Other significant features include the Archos trademark kickstand, functionalities such as Bluetooth and also WiFi. Accessories are many, and they include a 720p-capable DVR dock. However, what we get to learn is that the device would call for a proprietary connector to transfer data and charge.
A sure competitor for the iPod Touch, the Archos 32 Tablet would, however, incorporate only 8GB of storage. Sadly enough, no external storage is supported too.
Another negative is the user manual doesn’t talk of a mic, though we were earlier told it would come with a microphone. May be, the company has included an integrated speaker along with the device. Running Google Android 2.1 OS, the device would be powered by an ARM Cortex A8 processor. Watch out for the arrival of the Archos 32 Tablet for a possible price of around $150.
