Archos connects PMP PVR with Wi-Fi
Internet radio and podcast support coming too
Archos may not make the sexiest looking personal media players but by jimminy they cram in the features. In the case of the Archos 604, it's wireless networking that's top of the list, now added in to the already feature-rich PMP the company launched back in August.
The 604 has a 30GB hard drive for music, movie and photo content, ready to pump through earphones and display on the unit's 4.3in LCD. You can hook up a set-top box and record programming direct to the 604's hard drive.
The 802.11g Wi-Fi link allows you to browse the web, read your email and download content from your own network and from the internet. Archos wants to add support for podcast downloads, online content stores and internet radio, and it's promising firmware updates to bring this functionality to the device before Christmas. ®
