Archos 204 compact DAP announced

Following up on the recent razzle-dazzle 704-WiFi hype, Archos busts out with a much lower-key product: the 204 DAP. The 204 packs in 20 hours of playback time for MP3, WAV, and WMA files and uses a USB 2.0 connection. You can peep photos (JPEG only) on it, but no video, which is fine since it'd be quite squint-inducing on the 1.8-inch OLED display. Costing approximately €179 (about $235), the no-frills 204 offers a generous 20GB HDD in place of the more progressive features and styles seen in similarly priced DAPs and PMPs. The Archos 204 DAP will be available soon throughout Europe and on the Archos site.
