Archos reports very positive revenue and sales numbers for 2005.

Archos sales rose from 58.3 Mio Euros in 2004 to 103.1 Mio. Euros in 2005.
Sales in Asia grew considerable. Apparently Archos high-end PMPs are a hit in China. The Echostar deal helped to increase sales in the US.
Europe is still the largest market though for Archos. Also there, they could increase sales numbers.

The Archos AV 500 and AV 700 are top portable media players, so it is not a surprise to me that they sell well. It will be interesting what new models Archos is releasing in 2006 to compete with new iPods.
More details in this Archos press-release.
