Archos 2 in US
Without fanfare, Archos on Thursday revealed some of its plans for the US by posting teasers for the Archos 2 on its online store. The replacement for the Archos 105 has the familiar 1.8-inch screen and audio, photo and video formats of the French firm's earlier player but has an FM radio, a microSDHC card slot for additional storage and, in Europe, a purple tint along with the black and white models available everywhere. Voice recording is similarly an option.
The devices should rely heavily on their prices as selling points. In the US, 8GB models should sell for $60 while 16GB versions will be available for $100. A 32GB version mentioned previously doesn't appear bound for the country. Archos also hasn't said when it plans to ship the 2 series to Americans. [via Archos Lounge and Engadget]
