Mobile embedded devices are becoming more and more capable in terms of processing power, thus transforming Internet tablets into a real alternative to netbooks or even laptops.

These devices are mostly built around power efficient ARM-platforms. Software-wise, many components if not the entire platform are based upon open-source solutions: for instance Android and Maemo (now Meego) have gained a large share both in the industry and for consumers.

Archos choice for the Internet Tablet devices is Android; however the devices are open to creative development with dual OS thanks to special developer edition firmware based on the Ångström distribution/OpenEmbedded framework.

This presentation focuses on how software developers can benefit from using Archos’ open mobile platforms, in order to expand their usage models and target new creative unexpected field of applications.
