Archos 704 in FCC Leak
Media jukebox designer Archos has had its latest device leaked to the public, according to an FCC filing. The currently unannounced device is larger still than the company's earlier 604 Wi-Fi with a 5-inch LCD and is described by the testing group as a "mobile DVR," indicating a likely ability to record live video. No TV tuner appears to be part of the design, however. Wireless support for 802.11b/g is certain and should allow the 704 to browse the Web as well as stream media to and from a local network.
Few other features were revealed in the leak, but the device is known to have a notebook-class hard drive for storage as well as flash memory and fast DDR2 memory for caching. A launch date was not provided; however, Archos' confidentiality request for the 704 Wi-Fi expires in 15 days and will likely be followed soon afterwards by a formal announcement. [via DailyTech]
