Archos A28 Minidroid leaked by the FCC

Posted by Charbax on August 17th, 2010

Those FCC guys are nice, they keep leaking every new Archos device even though they have been asked to keep the informations confidential.

Here is the new, cheapest Android 2.2 ARM Cortex A8 45nm device in the world! Probably to be launched at around $99, with WiFi b/g/n:

This is the Archos A28 Minidroid, comes with 2.8″ QVGA 320×240 screen, support for Android 2.2 and runs on 800mhz ARM Cortex A8 at 45nm OMAP3630 by Texas Instruments. The price is likely to be lower than the recently leaked $149 Archos 32, thus the price is possibly going to be announced for $99 for the lowest 8GB capacity version!

As with every previous Archos Android Tablets, the Google Marketplace will for sure work just fine on this device. If it doesn’t come pre-installed on the device (because Google wouldn’t yet allow it to come pre-installed), there will most likely be an .apk that anyone can find on the Internet that takes 1 minute to install the full Google Marketplace with all the Google Apps on this device.

Consider its positioning on the market:
