I posted part 2 of my video review: http://archosfans.com/2010/10/19/review ... et-part-2/
Testing some cool features, Dolphin Browser HD multi-tabs, video-chatting, RDP, Angry Birds and Burning Tires, I just did a 37 minute VOIP call using SIP on Fring and using my $8/month 1GB/month SIM card in my Huawei Mifi and it works pretty much perfectly. For some reason audio in Skype and in Fring video-chat is still buggy, but I am sure Archos will fix this in a firmware update imminently. Also see my part 1 of this video review
- can you please install Dolphin Browser HD and do some tests?
* Menu -> Settings -> User Agent : iPad
* then visit the Gmail mobile site; does it display like on the iPad? http://a.fsdn.com/gc/wp-content/uploads ... 80x392.png
* Settings -> Full screen mode
* load some tabs, wait for them to fully load, pull down from the top of the page (like pulling the notification bar which is not visible); you should see all your tabs loaded; how smooth is it?
Thanks for suggesting this, this is in the start of my new video. Dolphin Browser HD seems to be very impressive! I love navigating between tabs with the volume buttons, pure awesomeness. Archos needs to provide full full screen mode, hiding the android buttons behind a short power button press or something.
RDP = Does android RDP allow 1:1 screen emulation with windows RDP? Does it pass multitouch controls to windows 7? Does it allow real time video streaming over the RDP (Win7->Win7 video/audio is perfectly synced and runs at full FPS even when in full screen). Essentially, i'm asking if i can use this tablet as a dumb terminal.
There are several very good RDP and VNC clients for android. The best I've come across is PhoneMyPc which does an excelent job at streaming live video but unfortunately it doesn't have support for sound (it's been promised for very long, hasn't happened yet).
Not sure if I tried the best RDP apps. I tried Remote RDP Lite and Wyse PocketCloud, couldn't get them to work perfectly, they work, but just not the right screen res or something, but it may be customizable in settings. Also in the video I remote desktop with Kyle on the other side of the planet, not best thing for showcasing this.
