The new Archos 604 Portable Media Player (PMP) was given to the celebrity host, performers and presenters of the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) as part of the prestigious official gift bag. The Archos 604 is an outstandingly slim, large-screen PMP that offers the convenience of portability and features the most brilliant, award-winning screen in the industry. The Archos 604 is a decidedly premium item and exactly the type of high-trend gift for which the VMA gift bags have become known. "The Archos 604 is bringing video, audio and photos into a sleek half-inch-thick device with unmatched screen quality and exceptional capacity," said Archos, Inc. Chief Operating Officer Larry Smith.

"With a 4.3-inch screen and 30GB of capacity, the Archos 604 gives the elite MTV entertainers one device for holding not only their entire media collections, but also showcasing their own music, video and photos to friends, colleagues and fans." The 604 holds up to 25 movies for viewing on the go or playback onto any TV, 15.000 songs for listening on the move, or 300.000 photos for presenting slideshows with music and transition effects - all in a pocket friendly size. The DVR Station accessory allows the 604 to record TV in DVD quality and other accessories allow direct photo transfers from your digital camera or the ability to turn the 604 into a personal camcorder.
