Over in the UK, the Archos-branded smart home phone has been available for a little while now. While it may not be the smash-hit home phone replacement that the company may have wanted, it must be seeing some decent sales in that neck of the woods, because the device’s emergence within the FCC gauntlet suggests that the manufacturer may be thinking about sending it over here to the States.
Nothing has been announced quite yet, but with its presence in the FCC, obviously the imagination is beginning to run wild. As far as specifications go, the device features a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 272×480. There’s a 1GHz TI OMAP 3630 processor under the hood, and 8GB of on-board storage. The device runs Android 2.2 Froyo. There is a VGA front-facing camera, too, so video calls are simple enough. And yes, you can download Android applications and games to the phone, too.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on a release date or price quite yet, but hopefully Archos comes clean on this device’s State-side launch soon — if it happens at all.
