Archos 5 Internet Tablet brings 4.8 inch viewing pleasure to you

Take a look at the video of the Archos 5 Internet tablet. Man this baby is damn thin. However, It won’t fit easy into your pocket. But armed with a 3G card, this Android platform should be a solid MID browser. Forget about those netbooks!

Positives

  1. Android ( up and coming mobile os ecosystem)
  2. 4.8 inch screen ( good size for viewing web pages)
  3. 720p video over HDMI
  4. 500GB harddisk (bombastic!)
  5. Bluetooth
  6. 3G (Tether over bluetooth?)
  7. GPS

Negatives

  1. No Phone function (not so much a negative really)
  2. OMAP processor (my experience with it tells me it tends to be dissappointing)
  3. Pricey (250 -440 dollars)

This would make a good life organizer really PROVIDED Android store really comes up with good life organizing apps. We already have Remember The Milk for android yesterday and Astrid. So the future for Android might not look so bad after all.
