Archos y el SDK para su PMA400


¿están interesados en crear sus propias aplicaciones para su reproductor multimedia? será posible en el Archos PMA400 con el nuevo SDK que lanzó la firma francesa.

El PMA400 es un reproductor multimedia, agenda y practicamente, PC portátil, que utiliza Linux como sistema operativo, por ende, es fácil programar aplicaciones para el mismo o portar otras ya existentes en ese sistema operativo (más de 5000 hay disponibles con código fuente libre…)
