    Archos has been in the Tablet game for quite some time. So, for its next device, what does the French juggernaut have up their sleeve? How about mini-tablet weighing in at a meager 2.54 oz? According to JR, Archos is preparing the launch of its Generation 8 tablet, which will sport a 3.2 inch 400x240 display, 8GB Storage, and a powerful ARM Cortex A8 processor (similar to DROID 1, DROID X, iPhone 4, iPad). It will launch with Android 2.1, USB 2.0, composite-video-out, 720p video recording, WiFi b/g/n, and Bluetooth EDR. Retail will be under $150. And for about half the price of a comparable iPod Touch, this could very well be a winner. No word on availability, but considering JR posted it on their website, it shouldn't be too far off. Check out the video and audio formats supported (note, AVI and MKV are inherently supported, woohoo!):

    With smartphones rising in popularity, is there still a market for these "mini-tablet" multimedia devices? Let us know your thoughts.

    Samsung is gonna give us the same thing as Galaxy-S without the phone functions. This will mean that there will be some spot for 'android' multimedia players :)
