A Connected Android Pocket Tablet
Android is the application framework developed by Google for connected mobile devices, coming stock with a full pack of connected apps, such as a web browser and email application. The five home screens of the Android user interface allow for advanced personalization: icons can be placed, moved or erased with just a flick of a finger.
ARCHOS products also feature an accelerometer and a graphical accelerator (3D OpenGL ES 2.0) to exploit the Android 3D capabilities such as live wallpapers, transition effects and 3D games.
In addition, since the ARCHOS 28 is Wi-Fi enabled, it’ll automatically download the latest firmware and OS updates.
