SFR sells Archos 5 3G+

The Archos Internet tablet, introduced earlier this summer, is now available for the first time via a wireless provider, France's SFR. The device is the Archos 5 3G+ and includes a 5-inch touchscreen, built-in access to 3G wireless data networks and Wi-Fi. Included with the device is a 30GB hard drive, the smallest of the range that also offer 60GB, 120GB and 250GB capacity disks.

The device uses the Opera mobile browser for Internet access and so is more accurate than most mobile web software. The Archos 5 3G+ weighs in at just over half a pound.

SFR will sell the Archos 5 for the equivalent of $320 along with a two-year contract that will cost current SFR subscribers the equivalent of about $26 per month, or new ones about $32 for virtually unlimited data plans. Additionally, the Archos 5 3G+ can be purchased contract-free at the equivalent price of $577 while the 60GB version without 3G access costs the equivalent of about $450. [via JournalduGeek]

    I wish Apple could come out with something similar to this product. I like this form factor. And these guys are still using harddrives which is nice for those that have greater storage needs. I'd like to see a 60 GB iPod Touch for sale. I don't need 3G, though.
