Of course, there would be support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, and GPS.
Two new Helium models
Archos 45 Helium 4G stands 4.5 inches and features quad-core 1.4GHz processor. Its speeds would reach up to 150 Mbps. The device would have 4GB of storage that is built in, providing more room for saving photos and videos that could be taken and recorded using its 5-megapixel rear camera and/or its VGA front camera. Price tag is at $199.99.
On the other hand, Archos 50 Helium 4G is longer at 5 inches. It has a screen with resolution of 1,280 X 720 pixels. As a step up from the other model, its built-in storage is greater at 8GB.
