French consumer electronics manufacturer Archos appears to be slowly-but-surely expanding upon its range of high-quality portable media players.

Last August, the company introduced the first phase of its apparent evolution by launching a trio of Internet media tablets. Today, it appears to be going one step further with a fully-fledged netbook, the Archos 10.

Archos 10, pictured above, is believed to be a re-badged Hasee MJ125 and features a 10.2in screen providing a 1,024x600 resolution. As expected, its innards consist of a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory and a generous 160GB hard-disk drive. It'll be loaded with Windows XP Home Edition as standard, but will ship with a lacklustre 3-cell battery.

It's nowhere near as interesting as other Archos kit, but we'll await an official announcement in hope of some hidden goodies.

If they are going to buy something in and re-badge it, why not buy in a convertable tablet netbook? at least then it is going to vaguely fit in with the rest of their current line up.
