Archos now selling 35 Home Connect radio for $150
The Archos 35 Home Connect Internet radio introduced mid-year has now gone on sale. The Android-powered device uses Wi-Fi to access Internet radio stations thanks to the included TuneIn Radio Pro app. There is also a built-in alarm clock, giving users the choice to wake up to nature sounds, an MP3 playlist, or a preselected radio station.
The device has access to Android apps through Archos' own AppsLib marketplace for tablets, not Android Market. There is 4GB of storage onboard, along with a microSD card slot. There are two speakers and a headphone jack for private listening. Users interface through the 3.5-inch touchscreen and, despite the fixed nature of the hardware, get a front-facing VGA camera. A 1GHz OMAP processor is at the core.
The radio is now available for $150.
