Texas Instruments Spills the Beans, Archos Working on an Android MID/Smartphone

Android Community has learned that Archos is working on a Mobile Internet Device that will run Android, have phone functionality and use the TI OMAP 3 processor (same as the Palm Pre).

The device was revealed by Texas Instruments in a press release for the OMAP 3 chip, but revolved around fairly vague details. What is known is that the device will have a five-inch screen, support HD playback, have a 10mm thickness and support Flash.

What isn't clear is why the press release keeps making a distinctions between the phone and mobile internet tablet functionalities, instead of just calling it a smartphone. But until we know the specifics, we'll just have to go along with it. [Android Community]
