605 WiFi firmware – bugfixes and new browser features

Posted by Charbax on August 10th, 2007

Archos just released the 605 WiFi firmware v 1.3.03.

Discuss this update in the forum:

I think that even though this might be a minor feature addition, which is Allow to zoom/unzoom with a double-tap on the touch screen, I think that this may be a very significant clue that Archos and Opera indeed are still working on improving the browser. So we can maybe more likely soon also have a faster scrolling feature, copy and paste, usb keyboard, SWF, streaming music, embedded video and more features to improve the browsing experience.

Download it manually at or install it using the automatic firmware upgrade feature.
