Archos Touts New Products, Partners, Plug-ins
Archos has announced a packet of enhancements that extend additional utility to its 605 Wi-Fi portable media player (PMP) and to its TV+ Wi-Fi digital video recorder. The company also announced a new partnership with Paramount Digital Entertainment that will give its equipment owners access to nearly 300 titles from the Paramount movie library.
Any of the four models in its 605 series, said Ron Ferguson, general manager of Archos North America, will become, via a new GPS in-car holder accessory, a full-featured navigation system. The accessory is to be available in May for $129.99, or bundled with the 605 30GB version at $399.99 the package.
Separately, the company announced software and some new services that extend the capabilities of its entire Gen-5 line. All Archos wireless PMPs will now support Adobe Flash Player 9 media.
