Price announced so far for the Archos 5G 30GB at SFR in France is 279€ with a 29€ per month HSDPA data subscription.
No details yet about the specifics of the minimum length required or the 29€ per month subscribtion, no details yet if this includes their unlimited music service, their IPTV over HSDPA service, their unlimited SMS messages, if this includes some monthly access to certain video content on a customized Media Club, no detail yet if this includes a USB HSDPA key that can also be used within the same subscription on another device. No details yet if that price includes also the DVR Station IMT, which plugins it might come pre-installed with. Also no details yet if all the features of the Archos 5 are also available on the Archos 5G by SFR, such as full video codecs streaming support on HSDPA as well as on WiFi.
The official date for the SFR official press event is on the 23rd of October in Paris, on that date, we should be able to learn more about this first subsidized Archos 5G HSDPA carrier distribution agreement, which may set the stage for the kind of agreements that we should as well see in other countries soon once other carriers announce that they will distribute the Archos 5G to their customers and to attract new customers on their HSDPA networks.
