I dunno if this is the unlocked pricing without any requirement of signing up for a subscription.

But if that is the true pricing, this could mean that the Archos 5G 30GB pricing may be just about 40Ôé¼ higher at MSRP then the Archos 5 60GB pricing. Which could perhaps make it a $390 price as well in the USA.

Anyways, SFR in France is going to announce stuff on the 23rd of October, that is the rumor. And I also posted something about it here: http://archosfans.com/2008/10/19/archos ... ber-issue/

Is that a different casing on the front or is it just the photo?

I read that the Archos 5g will be availibale at the retailer in Sweden in December on there website. http://www.ekab.se and it say "Produkt finns tillg├ñnglig i slutet december eller b├Ârjan januari!" = Product will be avalible in the end of December or begining of January. Hope this is wrong but the only place i get some info about a release date for this was on this web site.

Sorry to read this beacuse it means i dont get a x-mas gift this year. :(

Sorry about my english!

Archos will likely first try to get deals with one carrier in each country, or some carriers that cover several countries. And those carriers can get 6 months exclusivity on the product in each country.

Not yet any info for outside of France, they are working on doing some deals with carriers and should be announcing them soon.

If they manage to announce a carrier in the USA, if the pricing is similar, it could be $249 with a 2 year $19 per month unlimited HSDPA data subscription that includes 20 streaming live HSDPA channels, 1 movie and 5 songs per month.

Otherwise, from Stuff Magazine pricing in this picture in this thread, the unlocked Archos 5G 30GB may be sold worldwide without any required subscriptions for a price between 390Ôé¼/$390 and 449Ôé¼/$449.

Is it just me or is the casing plastic?

Perhaps theyve learnt from the paintwork debacle (mines just started to go - 3 weeks - new world record?)
