Like other Archos media tablets, it can be upgraded to enable live TV viewing and recording.
When released, potentially in September or October, the Archos 32 will join Archos' expanding portfolio of tablet devices running Android including the Archos 5 and Archos 7. It's expected to be priced at $150 after it was listed at this price when it briefly surfaced on the J&R website a few days ago. [via Wireless Goodness]
