Back in August, Global Tech News reported on a number of new portable media players (PMPs) from Archos. At the time, the Archos 604, 604 Wi-Fi, 504, 404 and 404 Camcorder were all on display. Today, Archos has announced the availability of the Archos 504.
The 504 is available in 40GB, 80GB and 160GB varieties. The player features a 4.3″ (430×272) display and has a battery life of 17 hours. The 504 supports H.264, MPEG2, MPEG4, WMV and Protected WMV and VOB video formats. WMA and Protected WMA, MP3 and WAV audio formats are also supported.
The 40GB, 80GB and 160GB 504 players are available now for $349.99, $399.99 and $599.99 respectively. $600 will buy you a decent laptop these days, so it’s likely that the Archos 504 160GB will be reserved for the ultra-mobile multimedia user who must have their entire library on hand at all times.
