Archos Gmini XS200, World’s Smallest 20GB

Archos has officially announced the world’s smallest 20GB hard drive-based digital audio player, the Gmini 200. This is in the price range of future 5GB mp3 players to hit the market, for $249 you won’t find a player with more gigs.

Last month someone jumped the gun and put the Gmini XS200 product page online at Archos.com, so the news of this is the least a bit of a surprise. The 220 will ship this month to retailers.
