Here is Archos new 4.3″ Vision line for bringing a cheap basic PMP to the market. Posted by cajl at JBMM.fr.
It comes with the Rockchip RK2706 processor, a 4.3″ basic 480×272 LCD touch screen with touch screen basic PMP interfaces, TV output support on the mini-jack, supports basically all video and audio formats for free without the need to buy plugins. 8GB flash storage is built-in with MicroSD card slot.
Most importantly the Archos 43 Vision is to be sold between 99€ and 129€ in European countries, my guess between $99 and $129 in the USA. Prices to be confirmed. No WiFi, no Android, that’s why it’s so cheap.

I previously posted a video overview of a pre-production unit of this device, but that was using an unfinished user interface. Now the user interface has been made cleaner and simpler to use, I’ll post a new video if I get one of these devices to review.
