Archos of France is adding products to the usual tablet PC and netbook line. Aside from the Archos 35 Home Connect Android Web Radio, the company also said they will be launching the Archos 35 Smart Home Phone in September 2011 for $159.
And just like the Archos 35 Home Connect, the Archos 35 Smart Home Phone comes with Android OS 2.2 Froyo and a similar size 3.5 inch touchscreen display.
If there’s smartphone for cellphones, then the Archos 35 Smart Home Phone is the equivalent. This is a regular wireless landline phone that’s web-enabled and full of features!
This telecommunication product is compatible with any regular phone line, ADSL connection and DECT wireless phone set-ups such as the GE 27956FE1 DECT 6 DigitalPhone. The Archos 35 Smart Home Phone can be used like a regular handset, just dial the numbers on the touchscreen display and start gossiping with friends just like the olden days when the internet wasn’t here yet!
The battery and charging dock of the Archos 35 Smart Home Phone is separate from the wireless receiver so there’s no annoying big box next to the phone line. Archos engineers crafted this smart home phone with pains to paint it like a smartphone worthy of their French artsy taste. It very sleek that it can be mistaken for an expensive Android smartphone!
The Android features make this phone unique to ordinary DECT handsets because of the Android Operating System. You can do more, much, much more with the Archos 35 Smart Home Phone. You can use it as a music or video player or mobile internet device. Yes, it has Wi-Fi connectivity so you can download any apps or games that you want.
I think this device is also powered by the same 1 GHz OMAP 3630 CPU that’s found on the Archos 35 Home Connect and recently announced Nokia N9 Smartphone. So this device is also capable of running 3D games up to OpenGL ES 2.0 standard! So if you have nobody to call, just go and use the Archos 35 Smart Home Phone as a gaming device. This device also supports Adobe Flash so you can waste your boring days at home with browser-based games like those found on Facebook.
There’s also a front-facing 720p HD webcam in the Archos 35 Smart Home Phone. You can go turn on the Wi-Fi and install Fring or Skype so you can do video chats with pretty girls.
