Archos 604 WiFi player

Archos has announced the 604 WiFi, a new version of the company's present flagship media player. Unlike Microsoft's forthcoming Zune, the 604 WiFi will make broad use of wireless technology to enable web browsing and direct file access from a WLAN. Browsing will be handled via Opera. Moreover, Archos is also pre-loading software support for SHOUTcast Internet radio, IPTV on DSL, and podcast aggregation through Podcatcher. The player will be controlled primarily via the 4.3-inch, 32-bit color touch screen, which will interact with a 30GB hard drive capable of holding music (AAC, MP3, WAV, WMA), photos (BMP, JPEG, PNG), or video (H.264, MPEG-2/4, WMV). An optional DVR station will allow TV recording. Pricing and availability information is currently unpublished.
