so far i have found online:

ANDROID COMMUNITY:

Archos have announced plans to develop an Internet Media Tablet that will use the Android platform for wireless connectivity, voice and applications. Based on Texas InstrumentsÔÇÖ OMAP 3 platform, the device - which has been described as ultra-thin at just 10mm- will support high-definition video playback as well as run the standard applications available for download through the Android Market.

In effect, Archos are creating the first Android MID. That means a high-resolution 5-inch touchscreen, DivX playback, TiVo-style video recording with possibly DVB-SH digital TV, full-screen Adobe Flash and Flash video support, and large-capacity storage. Archos appear to be using a traditional hard-drive, as in their current Internet Media Tablet range, with up to 500GB mentioned. Battery life should be good for 7hrs video playback, and the device will have 3.5G/7.2Mbps HSUPA.

TI are providing the OMAP3440 applications processor (for ÔÇ£laptop-likeÔÇØ performance), connectivity and analog products, and that Archos is aiming to get the device to the market fast. The Archos Android Internet Media Tablet - which is yet to have a definite name - is expected to launch in Q3 2009.
