NEWS: Archos teams up with Warner Brothers to offer Harry Potter films on 605 portable

Here's a cool offer. Archos is introducing a special-edition 20GB 605 Wi-Fi portable media player pre-loaded with the first four Harry Potter films.

The fifth film, The Order of the Phoenix, will be downloadable via the Archos portal when the DVD release is available.

You'll be able to buy one of the special 605 models for £190 in January from selected Blockbuster stores.

The Archos 605 Wi-Fi has a 4.3in touch screen with 800 x 480 resolution, wi-fi connectivity that enables you to browse the internet and supports Adobe Flash.

The optional DVR Station Gen 5 means you can record TV shows directly onto you Archos via the TV programme guide.

When we tested the 80GB version (£299) we gave it the full five stars, praising it for its impressive sound and vision performance and slick usability.
