The Lithium Polymer battery provides up to 7 hours of video or 42 hours of audio on a single charge.
Videos, Photos and Music
Whether you want to watch videos, share photos, or listen to your favorite music, the device supports an impressive number of file formats.
You have the ability to watch videos in the most popular formats, even in HD (720p). H.264, MPEG-4, and Realvideo codecs are supported, with AVI, MP4, MKV, MOV, and FLV file formats. You can also share your favorite videos with your friends on your TV screen using the composite video output (cable sold separately).
Upload your pictures directly to the device through the USB connection or the micro SDHC slot. You can view and share all of your pictures on the brilliant 7-inch screen or play them to your television, as with movies. Combine your favorite photos with your favorite songs and play a slideshow for your friends and family. JPEG, BMP, and GIF images supported.
The ARCHOS 7 home tablet also allows you to store your favorite songs and create your playlists, with up to 40 hours of music. And unlike a lot of the players out there, it lets you enjoy all kinds of different formats, with support for MP3, WMA (non-protected), WAV, APE, OGG, FLAC, and AAC files.
Enjoy a selection of pre-installed applications ready for use straight out of the box. Also, since the ARCHOS 7 is an Android-based system, you can customize your home tablet by downloading your favorite applications. Choose from thousands available in the Android Market. You can also access a large variety of free and purchasable applications directly from the AppsLib store. These apps are sorted by genre, ratings and date to help you find the one you want.
