Archos has in store a lot of launches in the near future. The Archos 32 is set to be the first one up for grabs out of the 5 brand new Android tablets and handheld devices Archos unveiled recently. Currently being shipped with the Google Android 2.1, with the Android 2.2 set to be available shortly by this October, this device closely resembles a cell phone and is being seen as a more cost effective Android equivalent of a touch phone with more value for the money you shell out.

The Archos 32 boasts of a 8 GB memory storage, has a wide comfortable display of 3.2 inches that would enhance your experience of 3-D graphics, offers quality processing capabilities with an 800 MHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU and a VGA camera to capture those special moments and record videos, along with a sleek 400 x 240 pixel resistive touchscreen. All this packed into a lightweight plastic case that cuts the bulk out of the gadget making it portable and for greater user ease the developers have included a G-sensor to rotate the display as and when you rotate the tablet. All that and more is what it has to offer with the huge spectrum of audio and video formats covering H.264, MP4, WMV, MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC, and OGG Vorbis. And hold it folks, the joyride doesn’t stop just here, Archos has wrapped up this enticing package by offering along with Archos 32 an AppsLib store with close to 5,000 Android apps, along with offering a 720p HD video playback and Bluetooth detection abilities. The only grumbling could be the use of the on screen keyboard which requires a bit of daintiness and also the absence of 3G and GPS which is notable. Nevertheless this does not prevent the Archos 32 from supporting downloaded apps or those available on the AppsLib.

This feather weight tablet weighs just about 2.5 ounces and comes with an additional USB port that you can connect to your television set. Priced at just $500 at the Archos store, this enviable ultra sleek n slim handheld masterpiece is a must buy this season for every gadget freak!
