is that what your talking about charbax? im now assuming the 2 will just be abandoned as an bad venture?
that machine does look nice though, but for my money i think i will be getting the 3 if the memory is expandable.
The Archos 2 is not a bad venture, it's one of the top selling mp3 players in many online stores. At amazon.com it's only $32, at Amazon.de it's 40Ôé¼, imagine that for a second. How insanely cheap this is.
Sure one or two features compared to the ipod nano might be buggy (firmware fixable) and perhaps a few features are not even there like bookmarks and management of playlists, yet the Archos 2 has pretty awesome features that the ipod nano does not have like voice recording, FM radio and a MicroSD memory expansion slot. Consider again, that the Archos 2 is between 3x and 4x cheaper than the ipod nano.
The Archos 2 Vision is supposed to come in and replace the Archos 2 I think, though it might be 20% or 30% more epensive at street price for the first couple of months or so on the market. The Archos 2 at this moment is shipping in huge quantities so demand for it will probably not go down immediately unless the Archos 2 Vision is somehow sold at exactly the same cheap price on release.
