Archos upgrades its WiFi line of PMPs

Archos is continuing to extend its line of wireless-enabled portable media players with the 704-WiFi. The big brother to Archos' 604-WiFi, the 704 is stocked with a giant 7-inch touchscreen, 80GB of storage, and of course that sexy wireless capability that means you can stream video from your PC, check e-mail, and scan the Internet using the built-in Opera browser.

Like all PMPs, you can watch video, listen to music, and watch slideshows. If you attach it to the optional $120 DVR Station, the unit can record video from a TV or other source, such as a cable box or DVD player. It can also handle PlaysForSure content, so you can download music and videos from any compatible store such as Amazon, AOL, CinemaNow, and Wal-Mart.

Of course, the 704-WiFi isn't exactly tiny, measuring in at 7-by-5-by-.8 inches, and 22 ounces--though a built-in kickstand helps keep the player upright. Nice touch. Battery life is decent: You get 25 hours of music and 5 hours of video.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
