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.

Windows Mobile 7 rumours, nothing new

image image image                       We have seen a few alleged screenshots appear this week of Windows Mobile 7. Cast your mind back just over a year ago and we have already seen leaks of the layout of Windows Mobile 7 and not much has changed with the exception of a Marketplace application and a shot of the supposed Zune application.

The pictures after the break were posted over at Mobility Today in January 2008

Sling Player submitted to the App Store

image Sling Media have just confirmed that they have submitted the first release of their Sling Player application to the iPhone App Store.

As ever we don’t know if it will be accepted yet or how long it will be before it appears in the App Store but this is still fantastic news.

In case you don’t know, Sling Player lets you watch and control your home TV on your mobile device when connected to a Slingbox so it is a great solution to take your viewing with you and it should look and work well with the iPhone.  More information on the Sling system can be found here.

Skype rumoured to be iPhone bound

image Is there no stopping the iPhone dominance. Just after the announcement of the 3.0 software which mostly stifled the Windows Mobile fans arguments that the iPhone is not a true smartphone, one of the only arguments left was the fact that Win Mo had a proper native Skype Application, Well if the rumours are true it looks like the iPhone will be ticking that box off very very soon.

According to Gigaom Skype is almost ready to launch that iPhone version, perhaps as soon as next week. CTIA Wireless, a large mobile industry trade event, kicks off in Las Vegas next Wednesday, so perhaps the announcement will be made there.

Five months on, and there’s still no sign from Adobe; however, embedded devices company Bsquare are claiming to be working with “a global, tier-one carrier” to bring Flash technology to the Android platform.
