The new Internet Media Tablets provide the power of a laptop with the world's first implementation of the ARM Cortex superscalar microprocessor and a high resolution 5-inch or 7-inch touch screen (800x480).

The new processing power means users of Archos' Internet Media Tablets now have an unrivalled way to surf the Web on the go, with web pages fully displayed on the ARCHOS screen as with a PC.

One of the best features of the new line of products is its built-in Wi-Fi and HSDPA access, allowing users to check and reply to emails and share attachments with anyone, as well as view online content while on the go.
