Increasingly, TV is being augmented by entertainment pulled from the Internet and other media sources. Internet Media Tablets from Archos let consumers explore and navigate the Internet, then switch to TV or other media, displaying all video on a high-resolution 5-inch screen. The tablets have 60 to 250 Gbytes of memory and both Wi-Fi and 3.5G-ready cellular links. The Archos 5 and its larger Archos 7 both employ Texas Instruments' OMAP 3 processor. This chip includes a 600 MHz superscalar ARM Cortex-A8 processor and TI's video digital signal processor. Battery life ranges up to seven hours for video and 22 hours for audio playback.
