However it does have a reasonable amount of ROM/RAM and also has WiFi. The spec may seem a bit mean, especially in the CPU department, but having used the Viva briefly already it does seem to work at a decent pace and even the TouchFlo interface is surprisingly fast and smooth.

The compact design houses an ultra-sensitive touch screen for navigation through contacts, media and web pages with new TouchFLO the latest in HTC’s unique touch screen interface technology. Effortless to use and working in perfect harmony with the phone’s main functions, the Touch Viva offers you the perfect welcome to touch-screen control.

Archos Android phone still on track

image Archos, after shocking many with the announcement it will be pushing the Android platform onto its Internet Media Tablets, has given away details on when we’ll finally be able to get our hands on it.

According to recently produced financial results, the company is set to launch the telephony-enabled Android phone in Q3, which means it could very well land before the previous September release date.

It also states that it intends to continue in the MP3 player market, something which the company says is one that ‘remains important in volume’ to Archos.

Archos has pledged to keep all of its future segments (MP3 players, the recent Archos 10 netbook and the forthcoming Android phone) under €500, which means should the exchange rates settle down we could be picking up an Archos Android for less than £400.
