Archos today has listed the Gmini 400 on their website making its release official. We reported the leak of photos about two weeks ago but have yet to see an actual press release from Archos regarding the Gmini 400. The 20GB portable video player will support MPEG-4, XviD and DivX video and MP3, WAV and WMA audio formats. One interesting feature is the ability to download games at only 4.99 euros a pop. Using the Mophun game will allow for 3rd party developers to get involved and make the Gmini 400 much more appealing. The price in Europe will be 399 Euros.
