Archos 5G review by ArchosLounge.net

Posted by Charbax on 19th November 2008

The Archos 5G is being released today in France by French carrier SFR. Check out ArchosLounge.net‘s review (in French) at http://archoslounge.net/Test-de-l-Archos-5-3G-by-SFR,8547.html

The price currently in France through the French carrier SFR is following:
249€ for the Archos 5G upfront payment with a 1-2 year “unlimited” HSDPA service contract ranging from 19-29€ per month. That includes unlimited access to 30 live TV channels, 1 movie and 5 song downloads per month.

Pricing and availability in other countries is to be announced soon.

Archos 5 for 1€ with mobile phone deal in France

Posted by Charbax on 19th November 2008

Things are getting pretty amazingly awesome in France these days in terms of deals coming for Archos 5 and Archos 5G products when you sign up for a year or more worth of carrier services.

Check this out:

You can get the Archos 5 60GB with the low cost Motorola Mofone F3 (but which has a really awesome E-Ink sceen) for just 1€ as long as you sign up for a least 1 year worth of 27,90€ or 2-year 22,90€ deal for 2 hour of talk time on French carrier Bouygues Telecom.

I’m saying this is pretty awesome and the possibillities are really getting to be huge. I’d say especially look forward to deals with the Archos 5G or Archos 5 with a HSDPA USB key as well as with a voice plan, perhaps even an ADSL plan as well. Making the deals a triple or a quadrule play deal. Where one monthly fee, which could still be reasonable, may let you use several SIM cards and several devices on the network and where you could be getting the Archos subsidized by a lot when signing that contract.

BBC video review

Posted by Charbax on 8th November 2008

BBC thinks the Archos 5 is totally awesome in this video review: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/click_online/7715973.stm

Now, all the BBC needs to do, is to provide a version of the iPlayer that works on open standards so that it can be streamed directly on the Archos over WiFi or HSDPA on a open standards based web based interface.

Chris Pirillo’s Archos 5 review updated

Posted by Charbax on 3rd November 2008

Chris Pirillo posted the video review of the Archos 5 on Youtube:

with over 21 thousand views from Technology fans worldwide thus far.

And he posted about it on his blog: http://chris.pirillo.com/2008/10/31/what-about-the-archos-5-internet-media-tablet/

It’ll be interesting to see if he has used the Archos 5 and the DVR Station a lot since he did this initial unboxing review of it. To hear if it has given him a better and better impression over a longer term, over this hardware’s potential to be the best pocket multimedia product ever made..
