With a similar 1.8-inch screen to its predecessor, the credit card-sized MP3 player replaces hard buttons with a touch scroller for moving through the menus, and for volume control.
The Vision will also feature an FM tuner, voice recorder, and microSD slot, and has the expected support for MP3 and WMA audio, and AVI video.
However, the let down on this miniature MP3 player is its battery life, promising only 10 hours for audio while Apple's Nano offers up to 24. They both level out on the video playback at 4 hours.
If the Archos 2 Vision sounds like it will meet your needs, you can pick it up now for £59.99 for the 8GB version or around £99.99 for the 16GB.
