Archos eReader Spotted at FCC

by Reads (3,287)

The FCC is currently sizing up a new Archos eReader.

The Android-powered Archos 70b eReader is said to be sporting a 7-inch color LCD, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, USB, stereo speakers, and an SD card slot. It will also include video and image support.

Once it hits the market, the 70b will be linking up with the Google eBookstore, which got underway earlier this week, along with other outlets that support Adobe Digital Editions DRM. 

On paper, the Archos 70b seems similar to the Pandigital Novel and NOOKcolor in that specs-wise it has more in common with Android tablets than it does eInk-based eReaders like the Kindle.

Archos has been very active as of late; it announced in September a wave of five Android tablets, including the 10.1-inch Archos 101, which TabletPCReview will be checking out at CES in January.

Now, with its LCD eReader being looked over by the FCC, Archos appears ready to have yet another tablet-esque gadget to add to its lineup.
