"Coming soon" to the USA. MP3 and WMA is kinda limited. The main page shows three colors while the store page shows only two colors available. Maybe other markets get the purple one. Built in FM radio is nice for a change.
OK so it has FM radio built in, but, why not AM radio? Isn't the technology for AM radio much older, therefore, easier to make work on a smaller scale? There are a much wider variety of programming and music on AM radio than on FM, which is mostly music. Also, AM radio can sound as good or better than many MP3 files. So, why no AM radio ??
Secondly, I don't think I should have to ask this question, but, can this thing record audio directly from the radio signal into an MP3? Any device I have ever bought that has capability of recording, has been able to record directly from the FM radio. And the Archos 2 can record audio. Maybe a mini-jack cord going from the Microphone input into the recording input? But it would be simpler if this was built-in.
Other than this, is anyone else scared about ordering an Archos 2 in regards to so many strange and unique problems suffered by others with their previous products? I have ordered one in good faith that it will be an improvement and worth the money.
