(Edit) 2011/11/14: The new Archos 35 IT is now visible on Archos website.
The Archos 35 IT is a latest update in the sub 5 inches portable multimedia players from Archos. This small 3.5 inches device is based on the Archos Gen8 platform like it’s older brothers, Archos 28 IT, Archos 32 IT and Archos 43 IT. Priced just under 100 euros, the device offers an intermediate product between the Archos 28 IT and the Archos 32 IT. Compared to the Archos 32 IT, the 35 IT looses the back camera and bluetooth support, so it actually offers the same equipement as the 28 IT.
