Remember you can edit your Review Post at any time if your experiences with the A101 changes.
Here's a preliminary report, reserving above right to edit and update my post...101 Gen9 16gb turbo 1.5 ghz 0.5 ram
from Archos USA, HC Android updated to ICS by mePros
-Great speed, resolution, aspect ratio, lack of appspace restrictions; quick boot and wifi acquisition.
-3g port will accept and power my 750gb NTFS usb disk (a drive/format that not even my Mac is comfy with)
-16gb onboard flash is non-FAT so should have the benefit of permitting movie files larger than 4gb (with the tradeoff that yet more software needs to be active on my Mac in order to mount it).
-The early upgrade to ICS android is appreciated in spite of inevitable transition bumps. Slick ways of managing apps (can even disable built-ins), and no unofficial tricks needed to get app market.Cons
-One back speaker doesn't compare to the 2 front speaker experience of my A70. You can accidently cover it with your hand and anyway mono lacks dimension. I'd rather not make it up with a protruding phonejack, although I may someday use bluetooth headphones.
-SDcard sticks out so much, it can be accidentally ejected much more easily than on my gen8 archos. Also now investigating a problem with android file transfer tool failing to allow any transfers after attempted move of >4gb file. (this last bullet item was edited Apr15)
-Screen seems unusually prone to fingermark buildup (edited may 18)
