at the FAQ section of archos official site:
Q: Can users download games from outside of the Appslib store to play on their device ex: FlashÔäó-based games?
A: The internet tablets currently do not play .swf format files (FlashÔäó-based games). When version 2.2 of AndroidÔäó becomes available for the ARCHOS internet tablets, this will allow you to play on-line FlashÔäó games.
Q: Why canÔÇÖt I view web sites that have FlashÔäó video or FlashÔäó games?
A: When the update to AndroidÔäó Froyo (version 2.2) is available, you can update your ARCHOS device to this version of AndroidÔäó and it will have the FlashÔäó 10.1 player included which will allow you to play FlashÔäó video content and FlashÔäó games on the web.
... and if you look at the technical specifications of Archos 101IT you can see the application framework is now officially FROYO!
Now I ask again:
Where is the "promised" official Flash support that we supposed to have when Froyo is available?
Oh, if you mean with "what we have" is the buggy and super turtle speed flash, this is definitely not the FLASH they have promised!!!
The fact is they promised Flash support but "what we have" is some crippled, weird thingy that looks like Flash.[/quote]
We have Flash, they promised Flash. Most of us have had Flash for a long time. Some waited until it was on Appslib which has been for a while as well. A few would wait until it was officially included in the most recent firmware update. At this point no one has the slightest argument that Archos has not given what they promised. You may not be happy with the quality of what we have, and likely have reasonable arguments as to why. But Archos has now formally, officially, and without question given what was promised...[/quote]
Ah I beg to differ, web based flash games don't work and they clearly stated they would. So that would be formally, officially and without question not given what was stated. At least in the USA thats called false advertising and isn't legal.
