We gave the original Archos Gmini 402 high marks, but now that this updated model packs a VGA camcorder and a 1.3-megapixel still camera, we're even more impressed. (For more on this impressive line, see the original Gmini400.). The 20GB Gmini 402 still plays back video and MP3/WMA files; stores and displays photos; records voice and line-level audio sources; supports games running on the popular Mophun engine; and syncs regular or DRM-protected music and video from Windows Media Player. And while its integrated camcorder can't compete with a stand-alone model, the 402's recorded video quality works fine for casual use. Aside from the red trim and a few other cosmetic differences,
The Gmini 402 is the next-generation Pocket Multimedia Center to take on the go all your digital entertainment: video, photos, music and games, including the protected content downloaded from multiple 'PlaysForSure' websites.

The Gmini 402 is ultra small, ultra slim, ultra light and features a cool and silver metallic cover.
Using the high-speed USB 2.0 interface, the Gmini 402 will easily auto-synchronise this content with Windows Media® Player 10 each time you connect it to your PC, or convert your Windows Media® Player 10 library content to one of the many compatible formats (MP3, WMA, WAV, protected WMA, MPEG-4, WMV2 and protected Windows Media® Video).
