    Unless they know something we don't with regards to 1.8" hard drive capacity, it's going to be 500GB or 10mm thick. 2.5" drives are 9.5mm on their own.

    Could be interesting though. I hope that by using Android (saving them from developing their own OS) means they can spend the time making the whole experience more reliable. Although I like Archos (I have a 605wifi and an AV-500) they aren't the most reliable or flexible. They need a software marketplace for people to release their own programs, they they really will have a killer product. The hardware has always been excellent, let down by poor or limited software.
