Archos Gmini XS200 Reviewed

TomsHardware has reviewed the tiny 20gb XS200 mp3 player from Archos.

The Archos Gmini XS200 features a 20gb hard drive, small 128×128 pixel screen, USB 2.0 connectivity, supports MP3, WMA, and WAV files, and works with both windows and mac.

The Archos Gmini XS200 is 3.0″ x 2.3″ x 0.8″ and weighs 4.6oz (smaller and lighter than the iPod 20gb, but a little thicker).

TomsHardware liked the size, price, and USB 2.0 but didn’t like the battery life and lack of volume button.

Archos should be at CES this week and we will be asking them about their next release: the PMA400. PMA stands for Pocket Media Assistant and the PMA400 is supposed to be a hybrid MP3 player, video player, and PDA. I would love to see something like a Dell Axim X50 Pocket PC with an 80GB hard drive but that isn’t going to happen.
