Check back on http://Archosfans.com around January 6-9th, I will post extensive video coverage from Archos booth at CES, expect them to display Archos 7 Home Tablet v2, Archos Vision 35/50 250/500GB, Archos 70b eReader and more. Probably they will be proudly showing of the whole Gen8 as it seems only now are they zble to ramp up manufacturing to meet more of the dsmand in the US and worlswide markets. If they could also use the svent to showcase finalized Flash, and announce the promise for Gingerbread/Honeycomb firmware updates would be great to reassure the media. I'd find it fun if Archos would also unveil an ARM Powered Chrome OS laptop and an ARM Powered Google TV set-top-box project, even if only mockups to only be released 3 months later.

What would you like me to ask the Archos representatives at CES? Post your questions here in this thread.

Wondering, whats your basis for thinking theres going to be a 500gb anything? the spec sheets ive seen for the 50 vision only ever made reference to a 250gb model... my biggest disappointment with gen 8 was the lack of storage, first time in 10 years i didnt buy one. hopefully the 50 vision addresses the issue. i'll certainly be checking back next week. also fingers crossed that the 50vision looks more like the 35vision than the horrid looking 70, which i fear it might...

I'd like to know about flash and gingerbread/honeycomb for the gen 8s like you said. Also I would also be interested in a Chrome OS device if they made one.

Will they ever update the tethering chat script to fix the init string problem and be compatible with the Blackberry?

Mirroring what others have said, my main interest is in how long they plan to support the gen 8 devices with OS upgrades...

Oh and also if they have any intention of taking Googles advice on the rooting issue:

Will they enlarge or can we expect an increase from the 300MB memory application storage on Gen 8? To me, this is huge!

I understand they have to keep making "newer" devices and show them @ CES, but the current Gen cannot achieve its potential without more memory for app storage.

I would like to ask Archos:

Will they add a hide menubar option in the next firmware update for Archos 70? (menubar = the four buttons that are always on the right side on the screen and always shrink the usable space)

then i would fall on my knees and beg them to add it soon please please please :)

here are many more people who want that option. look:

Ask Archos: Do you have plans to increase production capability to meet demands for the gen 8 devices? If so, how quickly can we expect good supplies of these to show up?

Will they at a minimum address the app storage space on the A70/8 and A101 models by increasing the /data partition from 300 meg to at least the 1.4 gig like it is on the A70/250?

+1

Blackberry tethering needs to be supported ASAP. When will they fix that?

Please try to play with the Vision 50 HDD, and see if the screen has reasonable touch response and viewability. If we are paying up for a disk drive and larger device, it needs to have a better screen than the other visions which barely respond to touch.

About Gen8:

-When will they release a 2.3 firm?
-Will they release a 3.0 firm? When?
-Will they give us more space for apps?
-Will they solve the issues with soft buttons?

This. These are the most glaring of issues and curiosities.
