Archos sent us their official press-release of their new small 3GB music player Gmini XS 100.

The Gmini XS 100 features a 1.5” gray-scale LCD screen, USB 2.0, 14 hour batter life and is certified under the Microsoft PlaysForSure program. The Gmini XS 100 comes in Black, Pink, Blue or Silver casing.
