Archos never seems to disappoint. Just when the company drops off our radar, they unleash something incredibly cool. The latest announcement is the Archos Arnova, a tabletop device that promises plenty of streaming radio options, but adds in TV as the topper.

According to the company, the Archos Arnova can tap into 1,500 web TV channels. Where those channels are coming from is anyone’s guess. Is it Hulu? YouTube? That info has yet to be announced. However, they are planning something, and have the 3.5-inch color touchscreen to deliver it.

Other features on the Archos Arnova include access to 12,000 streaming radio stations, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, uPNP support, 2GB of internal storage, an SD card slot, and alarm clock features. It also comes with its own remote control.

The Arnova website has a complete list of specs. However, we did notice two other tidbits that seem to be missing: a price and release date.
