Re: Is Archos nearing death?

Archos is the only European company of its kind and they still provide the best value. How can 50€ Million in revenues per quarter for a small company with just 100 employees be considered bad by anyone? Of course Archos had top sub-400€ tablet market share in Europe for 2011, since then Asus, Acer,...

Re: What should Archos do?

No HDD in Gen10 and you can't expect much from GPS technology, especially not indoors, GPS needs 3G-modem assist to be more reliable. My Nexus 7's (wifi only, no 3G) GPS locks in quickly and flawlessly every time I use it. Disappointed Archos 70it & 80 9g owner Very happy Nexus 7 owner Nexus 7 came...

Re: My archos almost caught on fire health hazard warning

Maybe there is something wrong with yours that it overheats, I don't see others posting overheating issues in here. I don't think that the Rockchip RK3066 has much overheating. It can happen that a device has a defect and overheats, maybe a shortcut defect on the motherboard or somewhere near the ba...

Re: Archos 80 XS and Archos 97 XS filmed at HKTDC Electronic

I would be interested in some further details about why you prefer 16 x 9 over 4 x 3? 1280x720 is 16:9 1920x1080 is 16:9 3840x2160 is 16:9 16:9 is the industry standard. Horizontally is how we view the world, we tilt our heads sideways way more than we tilt our heads upwards. yes the lens of the ey...

Re: Why no forum for the GamePad yet?

It's abit quiet on the game pad is that because not many have them yet or is it not so popular.? Archos has had delays with manufacturing and supply, this is actually normal for Archos, every year since JBMM20 was delayed to August 2002, Archos new products are always delayed. The main reason I thi...

Re: Hanging on boot logo after latest update

Let's get Archos to confirm here what's going on officially. My guess is there may be a bug only for the "old" OMAP4430 1Ghz 512MB RAM non-Turbo, non-ICS-at-launch G9 tablets. Can you confirm here which version of the Archos 101 G9 you are updating? Do you have 1Ghz, 1.2Ghz, 1.5Ghz and do ...

Re: Memory bandwidth

According to the specs, the OMAP4470 is manufactured in 45-nm technology at TI's own fabs. Its maximum rated frequency is 1.8 GHz, and the LPDDR2 memory works at 466 MHz on a 32-bit wide BUS in dual-channel mode. The chip's GPU is based on Imagination's PowerVR SGX544 architecture, and is clocked a...

Re: Archos has left the building?

Gen10 firmware 4.0.24 is being matched back to Gen9 next week. Thus as JB comes to Gen10, maybe next month, you can also expect it to come to Gen9 shortly after that.

Re: Jelly Bean! Jelly Bean! Jelly Bean!

Gen10 just got the 4.0.24 firmware update and Archos confirms that Gen9 is getting the matching firmware update next week. Thus you can be sure Gen9 is going to keep getting updated as Gen10 gets updates, that Archos expects it to be manageable work required to bring firmware updates back to Gen9 to...

Re: Why no forum for the GamePad yet?

I dunno but I think a second MicroSD card slot is 2€, but if there can be MicroSDXC or/and a second slot, I think it's mostly a question of it being supported on the Rockchip RK3066 SoC or not. But who knows.. MicroSDXC is only software I thought? Only high-capacity(like 128GB) would require too mu...

Re: Why no forum for the GamePad yet?

Charb, Has Archos said anything about storage? I think Flash storage perhaps 8GB is most likely, MicroSD card slot likely. 2 MicroSD or SD card slots could be cool, lots have MicroSDs by now, I guess even more have full sized SD cards, and they're cheaper. MicroSDXC can be good although a 64GB Micr...

Re: Why no forum for the GamePad yet?

Charb, Please see if you can convince Archos to make this 16gb instead. Probably too late, but games like Asphalt And NOVA each take over 1.5gb of storage and no apps2sd option with ICS or Jellybean. The average 3D game is now over 400MB. 8GB minus formatting, Android operational floor, stock apps ...
