Archos 9 heralds a future of devices that expand how we use PCs and where we use them dramatically

Posted by Charbax on 24th September 2009

Influential industry analyst Rob Enderle likes the Archos 9 a lot in his new article: The Archos 9: What Apple’s iPad Should Be

This is really the first really interesting device of its type (…) This product is designed to be always connected and, as a class, will likely become more popular as LTE and WiMax (also called 4G) networks become both more common and more affordable (expected to be priced around $15 a month). (…) This may be the first truly HD player in the MID class of devices (…) Unlike other products in this class currently in market, you could actually leave your notebook at home and carry the Archos 9 instead. There is no fan, and unlike a number of other devices (read: iPhone) it doesn’t seem to get hot. This makes it an ideal bedside device for those that want to be online, but want their spouse to be able to sleep at the same time. In fact, this may be the first PC-like device that is uniquely optimized for bedroom use.
