Archos 35 Home Connect unveiled
Archos intends to further push the envelope when it comes to technological boundaries as well as innovation with the introduction of their latest device, the Archos 35 Home Connect. This is an Android-powered web radio that was specially designed for the home user. Touted to be the most advanced Android-based web radio in the market (which makes perfect sense after all, since how many web radios that run on the Android OS do you see hanging around store shelves, virtual or otherwise?), the Archos 35 Home Connect is perfectly sized to deliver streaming radio and music anywhere at home, ranging from the bedroom to the kitchen, bathroom or kids room.
Being diminutive in size certainly makes it a whole lot easier to tote around, and the Archos 35 Home Connect will boast Wi-Fi connectivity as well as amazing audio quality, once again lending wisdom to the adage that one ought not to judge a book by its cover – and in this case, the audio quality by its size. Let us take a close look at what the Archos 35 Home Connect is able to deliver after the jump.
If you are one who hates being woken up by the traditional din of an alarm clock’s bells, or do not want to subject yourself to the random rants of the resident DJ at a local radio station, the Archos 35 Home Connect does feature progressive nature sounds to help you get out of the right side of the bed. Of course, the other alternative would be to be in complete control, using your MP3 playlist instead, but for those who prefer to take their chances, tuning in to your favorite web radio station might also be an option.
All it takes is a single click on the touchscreen display and you’re able to stream more than 50,000 web radio stations thanks to the pre-loaded TuneIn Radio Pro application. Apart from that, it doesn’t matter how different each day of the week is – as the alarm clock is highly customizable, you are able to set just about as many alarms as you could possibly want or need. Not only that, there are apps and widgets for you to play around with, let alone download, ranging from real time weather updates, traffic reports, sports news, social networking, movies, music, games and more.
A couple of embedded high definition stereo speakers ought to get the job done on behalf of your ears, and if you do not want to disturb anyone else in the vicinity, you can always don a pair of headphones. Expect to fork out $149 for the Archos 35 Home Connect if you’re interested.
