Yes, it looks goofy as hell, but we're sure Archos 5 owners aren't complaining about the new Snap-on TV DVB-T accessory -- not only will it allow you to watch live TV, it integrates with the DVR features of the unit to give you portable recording. Interestingly, although the Snap-on TV features dua

Looks like the Archos 5 and 7 just got another firmware update that's finally brought a release version of the email app. That's right, update 1.2.05 is enough to bring Archos' email out of beta, and now everybody's partying with the real app, which apparently doesn't crash all the time and moves a

Browser bakeoffs are never without a certain amount of controversy, but we're sort of into Pocketable's latest comparison since the devices on the bench represent three very different points on the spectrum of touchscreen devices.

It's just been a few short days since Archos took the wraps off its new Archos 5 and Archos 7 \"internet media tablets,\" but if you're already sold, you can now get your order in for one of 'em on Amazon (and no doubt plenty of other places shortly).

Archos has only just taken the wraps off its new Generation 6 \"internet media tablets\" but, right on cue, the folks at Generation MP3 have already turned out a pretty extensive hands-on with one of 'em, the Archos 5. One thing that was immediately apparent to them is that the device's shiny new bla
