Archos 504 media player
Archos' 504 media player will go on sale tomorrow, says Mobile Magazine. A counterpart to the 604 WiFi, the 504 may be a "wired" player, but what it forsakes in Internet access it makes up for in increased storage. The base model will hold a conventional 40GB, but a mid-range player will hold 80GB, and the top end will store 160GB. Archos believes this is enough to load 450 movies, 1.6 million photos, or 80,000 songs. The player is otherwise feature-similar to the 604 WiFi, the only other absent selling point being a touchscreen. The 40GB player will retail for $350, the 80GB for $400, and the 160GB for $600. Check a local retailer or Archos' online store for stock.
