Archos 3cam Vision unboxing video

archos3camv_intro Archos have a long history of producing portable media players. In the past these have been chunky devices with built-in hard drives and large touch-screen displays aimed at those that want to take their video library on the go.

A while ago Archos started to expand their offering though and are now offering Internet Tablets, Netbooks and also Media Players with both their own linux based operating systems and, more recently, Android OS.

This latest product that we have on review from Archos is the 3cam Vision. It’s a small portable media player with a 3″ touchscreen display capable of playing a variety of both audio and video formats. The 3cam vision also has a slightly more unusual trick up its sleeve in that it has a built-in digital camera capable of recording video and still images.

The 3cam also has an FM radio as well as an FM transmitter which allows you to use it in-car for example and listen to your media through your car HiFi.

As always, we’re taking our time over the review and will have it live on site for you soon. For now you can see the Acrhos 3cam Vision in more detail in the unboxing video below.
