Archos 70b e-reader clears the FCC

Archos 70b e-reader clears the FCC e-Reading Hardware If not for the valid Archos email address given as contact, I would have thought this was another knockoff.

Archos are planning an ereader, and it just cleared the FCC. We can't tell much from the FCC docs, but it looks like it's based on a 7" touch screen and runs Android. It has Wifi, a SD card slot, and ships with the basic abilities (like web browsing).

I do find it interesting that Archos are going down the same path as everyone else. Look at the manual, and you'll see they're using a custom home screen. But the thing is, it looks pretty much like everyone else's custom home screen. Interesting.


About Nate Hoffelder (9906 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
