Sounds great... no wonder prices are falling like rotten apples lately... hope Archos learns from mistake of changing the screen type midway from glossy to matte..


However, not sure if it's just me :( but the pic on engadget seems like is matte screen pic

im really getting frustrated here and second guessing my archos 5 purchase. it's not that i'm unhappy with the device itself. rather the fact that there are so many similar devices coming out soon that will probably be better or more suiting to what i want in a pmp. other than the infamous customer support from archos, the forthcoming android powered archos 5 sounds more desirable, that is if it works as well as it's supposed to or does everything it is supposed to do. and we all know how archos can be about their claims. then there is the zune hd coming in sept. and that new device from dell. the new revamped sony walkman with touchscreen and wifi. :x almost wishing i had just got some smaller, less expensive mp3/video player to hold me over till there were more choices out there for those of us who want something similar to the ipod touch without having to resort to buying apple.

I'm just hoping that Archos releases a firmware update that will give us Android also. After all, It's been out only what...8 or 9 months. But given Archos' reputation for customer service, I highly doubt it will happen. I think that last firmware update that did pretty much nothing will be our last.

The 5 is probably considered a money pit at this point with all that is happening -- and happening real soon.
