Archos, maker of PMPs such as the 7in touchscreen 705 (pictured), has just inked a deal with mobile network SFR.

The two French companies have agreed to collaborate on getting speedy HSDPA into Archos' portable players.

Could this be the first step towards an Archos version of the iPhone? Or is it merely a way of bumping up the spec on its already Wi-Fi capable players so they can access Archos' movie downloads from anywhere?

Your guess is as good as ours, so watch this space. Or regardez cet espace, as they say in France. Possibly.
