Google’s Linux-based Android mobile operating system has been fingered for powering mobile devices beyond the smartphone for some time now. On Sept. 15, Archos Technology will unveil just such a device, a tablet computer.
At the Sept. 15 press conference, the company will showcase the touchscreen device, it said this week. The tablet will have a 5-inch display, with 720p video support, an HDMI output and native OpenGL libraries, all with a Texas Instruments processor.
Early reports also say it includes 500GB of storage and embedded 3G.
While not a traditionally hot space, the tablet wars are heating up, with Apple rumored to soon be coming to the table with one or possibly two tablet computers, perhaps next month as well.
