So the PDA is dead? Well not yet apparently, for if Archos gets its way it’ll return as a variant of the personal video player. At CES the French based company confirmed that its next generation of personal video players, the PMA400 will also feature PDA type functionality. New facilities are likely to include internet access via Wi-Fi, a touch screen and synchronisation with a range of microsoft applications. The devices, which are likely to reach the stores in the summer, run using a Linux based operating system. This is of course in addition to current PVP staples such as MP3, JPEG and MPEG compatibility, a 3.5inch LCD display and a hard disk.
