The design of the 605 WiFi is similar to the previous line, though changes include a thinner profile and smaller buttons. The button layout remains the same but with the addition of a volume control. The battery is now irremovable, though an extended battery pack is available optionally, and the kickstand is moved to the edge of the player. The 605 WiFi features support for Adobe Flash, which equips a portable version of Opera. An online content portal is linked to directly purchase or rent media from various distributors.
Recently, a special edition of the 605 WiFi has been released in Europe. This version has a 20GB capacity and is bundled with Charlie Chaplin movies and a custom engraving on the back. A Harry Potter edition was later released.
A hard drive version of this player has been released in Europe in a capacity of 30GB.
Beware, the 2.x versions of the firmware have disabled the ability to apply the GFT exploit. This is an undocumented fix on Archos' side and is not listed in the change-form for the release. They automatically include 2.0 and later on all newly shipping 605 units. So far they have not re-released their source-code as per GPL license since fixing the issue.
