Archos 704 Wi-Fi

Jukebox designer Archos this morning put speculation to rest and announced the 704 Wi-Fi, its new flagship player. Labeled as a mobile PVR, the finished 704 differs from what an FCC leak suggested by using a 7-inch, 800x480 screen sharp enough to view DVD-quality AVI, MPEG-4, or WMV clips for up to five hours. As suggested by the name, 802.11g wireless is built-in and gives access to both web browsing through Opera and media from nearby PCs. An optional PVR dock ($100) lets the Archos system record video directly to the 80GB hard drive, and music in MP3 or WMA is also supported.

The player should ship in mid-March for $550; optional packs that add H.264 and MPEG-2 video formats as well as AAC audio will also be available, though Archos hasn't mentioned their pricing. Click through for a full image.
