I downloaded and installed the google marketplace apk but im not sure if it worked right because im s...

I'm from Ireland, and yes thats pretty much what we think. are defence budget this year was Ôé¼1billion which is probably tiny in war terms. but really.. yes...

480x272 screen? bit outdated now isin't it? How small do you need your pixels? Increasing the DPI may help with anti-aliasing fonts in the browser, but for general playback you are not going to see much difference on a screen of that physical size. Good case in point, the Apple iPhone has a lower D...

I will! actually, I'l buy it without hearing a single song if someone has recommended it to me. You ei...

People mostly don't bother ripping their own CDs at all, unless those people happen to be old enough to own many CDs and have had plenty of time to spend ripping them, just as I don't think people bother much ripping their own DVDs. It's much easier to download or copy and paste from a friends hard...

Yep, but it's not a real hands on review, just some (very shakey!) video shots of the demo unit at IFA and an outline of the spec and it's potential advantages over an Archos. I'd wait for a decent (e.g. CNET) full hands on review before judging it completely. Cnet? a decent review site? thats a go...

pretty much everything is cheaper in america so I guess they get payed less while here we get payed more but everthing is dearer. I'm guessing that for hardware stuff is dearer in eu because of the higher cost of labour + materials, and then when it came to these plug-ins archos saw that in every ot...

the 605 has more memory options, 4gb flash, 30gb, 80gb, 160gb. 605 can watch videos on youtube ect because it will support flash (with a plug-in) 605 has a 800x480 5:3 screen while the 604 has a 480x272 screen. The touchscreen is more advanced on the 605 e.g if you hold down on one spot on the scree...
