Based on those requirements, the Archos 10 has already lost on the first 3.Price:
Are all under ┬ú300 and offer the same, say for bit of disk space, spec as the Archos 10.
Screen and keyboard,
Very little difference in screens, resolutions are much a muchness, where it might count is matt or gloss, touch screen or not. Keyboards are a bit more of an issue, some netbooks have bad ones, some like the Samsung NC10 have half decent ones. Would it be a deal breaker for me? No.Word of mouth.
Ask anyone with a bit of know about netbooks, chances are Archos won't get a mentioned (this could change if a miracle happens and they get some serious market share. I've had people ask me about what netbook to look at, the answer is the same. Asus, Acer, Advent, Samsung. Even though there are many more netbooks on the market now, none of them offer anything over what these three already offer.
So again, what is the Archos 10 bringing to this market? What is going to make people put their hard earned money on the table?
The best I can see it doing is picking up stragglers, from retailer that don't stock a wide choice.
