Archos takes on Chumby with 35 Home Connect

The battle for smart alarm clocks is on with Archos new entry, the Android-based 35 Home Connect. Like Chumby, the internet connected companion device, the Archos offering is WiFi connected so radio streaming, alarms and apps bring a new level of functionality to these bedside gadgets.

The Archos 35 Home Connect has an internal battery, so it can come to your WiFi enabled beach or even just by the pool. Archos even threw in a webcam so video conferencing is an option or it can double use as a baby cam.

The 3.5″ screen provides you with the touchscreen you’ve come to expect from your smartphone. And speaking of your smartphone, you can control the Archos 35 Home Connect with a remote app on your smartphone. Pretty cool.

There’s a lot you can do with this little thing, much more than a mere alarm clock. Find it this September for $149.
