Archos 704 TV headed for France

GenerationMP3 reports that France is set to get its own version of the Archos 704 PMP, dubbed the Archos 704 TV, which'll boast a few notable additions and at least one notable omission. Sure to please folks in France the most are the two TNT tuners integrated into the cover of the device, which will let 'em pick up digital TV signals from the Télévision Numérique Terrestre service -- France's equivalent to Freeview. Unfortunately, that seems to have come at the expense of integrated WiFi, which has apparently been dropped from the device. Otherwise, the device looks to be virtually identical to the regular 704, with the same 7-inch 800 x 480 touchscreen and somewhat hefty 22 ounce carrying weight. If that trade-off works for you, and you live in France, you should be able to grab one by the end of June for 549€ ($736).
