Updated: Archos announces new line of MP3 players and PVPs

Scattered details surface about Archos' 2007 line of DAPs.

An Archos press event in France has revealed the new Archos line a mere hours before an event is scheduled to take place in the United States. Since neither I nor the folks at Engadget (I'm guessing) can be completely trusted with our French translation, I have relatively few details to confirm. I can tell you the company is launching a new flash player, the 2GB 105, as well as a revamped PVP line, including the 405, the 705, and the 605 WiFi. We'll have some more information here on Crave after the U.S. event.

Update: I just spoke with one of our New York editors who attended the U.S. announcement, and he told me something pretty exciting: the new 605 WiFi is going to have onboard support for CinemaNow, meaning you can purchase and download movies on the go without connecting to a computer. That player will also support Opera with Flash video, so you will never be without fresh video content from sites like YouTube. Um...sweet! (Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the iPhone can do that.) Stay tuned for a separate post, which will include plenty of specs to whet your appetite.
