It's totally awesome. I use it as my main laptop replacement. My ultrabook is thrown out as I shown in my initial video-review http://archosfans.com/2012/08/25/archos ... g-machine/
, I can use this for most things I need instead when I am on travels. There may be a couple of bugs on my firmware, the one that bugs me the most is that Gmail app doesn't support backspace or delete buttons correctly on this pre-release beta firmware. So I mostly use the web based Gmail for when I need to write long emails. I need to check with Archos if they can send me a newer firmware version or I can wait for them to release the production firmware. I think the production firmware is probably Jelly Bean, so I probably have to wait for that, maybe they can send me a beta of JB to test, I'll let you know. Anyways, the device is masterfully awesome, impressively thin, light, nice, and I can type at full speed on the keyboard fine. My typos are few. I think the keyboard is better than the Asus Transformer keyboard docks, better than Sony Xperia Tablet keyboard dock and I think it's better than the Logitech keyboard dock for iPad3.
I think release date was planned as soon as mid-September in certain European regions, but that hasn't started yet. Thus release may start next month in Europe and also in the USA although they previously said November was the release month for the USA.
