Archos 105 Ships

Archos is about to ship the Archos 105, the music-oriented device in its fifth-generation player line. The 2GB device is thin at just 0.3 inches deep but is capable of playing a full range of content; beyond MP3, WAV, and WMA music, the 105 is also home to full-speed Windows Media video at its native resolution and JPEG photo viewing. A 1.8-inch OLED screen brightens the image and also keeps power consumption at 18 hours for audio.

Shipments of the 105 officially begin tomorrow from Amazon in black, gray, and red colors for $90. Archos claims that the player can be loaded with media from either Macs or Windows PCs.

    small screen, small buttons, large unused area... Looks lame!

    It's a great device.

    I am a fan of Apple and Archos products, ever since they introduce the AV400 series they are becoming the Apple Inc. outside USA. Their Products are great are they are getting the message that looks matter, now this device it's great for music, better that the iPod shuffle for a couple of dollars more and beter than the first, second and third gen iPod for users that want to upgrade. I think it's slick, looks good and it does it job!
