  • Summary: We’re glad to see Archos finally getting into the smartphone game, but it faces stiff competition. Too stiff, in fact: since Google’s very own (and quite possibly subsidised) Google Nexus 4 Android smartphone packs better specs and more up to date software for only slightly more, there’s little to...
