Archos are further fuelling the Android invasion of your home with the release of the Archos 35 range. Cramming the Google Android OS into a radio and a home phone, the Archos 35 Home Connect and the Archos 35 Smart Home Phone will both be vying for spots in your home.
The Archos 35 Home Connect is a web-based radio that can access 50,000+ stations through TuneIn. Built in apps include a clock, weather and traffic updates as well as news widgets.
The Home Connect unit can also connect to android app stores to increase its functionality, letting you grab games from the Marketplace, while a web cam opens the radio up to video conferencing apps too.
Next up is the Archos 35 Smart Home Phone, which, as its name suggests, opens up smartphone functionality to your static home phone. You’ll have access to apps and email on the device, as well as also offering video calling functionality. A little pointless, you may argue, as anyone who’d want a smartphone would also porbably want the flexibility of being able to take it out of the house too.
Both units are set for release in September, with the Home Connect selling for £119, and the Smart Home Phone costing £129.
