Called simply “2”, Amazon’s US webpage states that the 81 x 40 x 9mm tunester has 8GB of on-board storage and a memory card slot for Micro SDs. A 16GB model’s also listed, but over at Amazon Germany.

Able to cope with WMA and MP3 audio, JPEG picture and WMV video formats equally well, the 50g Archos 2 has a 1.8in, 128 x 160 screen. The player’s UI is described as “animated”, “intuitive” and “user-friendly”.

Battery life extends to 12 hours of audio playback and four hours during video use. The built-in microphone also lets you use the player for short audio transcripts.
