After a year and a half of intensive usage, I have dropped it "one too many times". A little screen crack which developed into a complete crack across the screen. There is also a big blue spot on the screen and along the crack...BUT it still WORKS!
Go Archos go!
I can't say RIP my little friend...my 11-year-old daughter is now using it 24/7
Myself, ugraded to the Gen 9 80 1.5 250 HDD ICS 4.0.5. (255Ôé¼). So far I am very happy, but I do miss the extremely portable and light 70 IT. I was just not convinced that the 70 IT2 was a real step forward, and the Galaxy 7 Plus is just way too expensive (330Ôé¼ excluding
the required HDMI and USB connector!)
I guess this was my last 70 IT post. Thanks to all for the info and support!
