Re: Archos G9 1.2Ghz October and 1.5Ghz December availabilit

SO frustrating that the 250 GB version seems to be nowhere near release. If it doesn't appear in december, I'm gonna have to move on.

Re: Smaller Screen

Just out of curiosity, what benefit would a 4.3" Archos phone have over, say, the new Nexus Galaxy?

Re: Cinema plugin and the Archos store

Are there other android video apps that will play videos with AC3? Seems like there must be, and I'd like to know how well they work.

Re: Archos G9 1.2Ghz October and 1.5Ghz December availabilit

Anyone have thoughts on how the battery performance will be affected by the 1.2 GHz to 1.5 GHz difference? If there's a noticeable increase in battery life on the 1.2 GHz, I think it might be worth getting over the 1.5 GHz model, especially since I don't plan on doing anything incredibly processor i...

Then why not just get one of the 4.3-4.5" android phones and not have to carry around 2 devices?

If I was thinking about getting one of these samsung 4-5" tablets, I'd just get the galaxy s2.

Re: Archos G9 101 VS. Apple Ipad 2

Those samsung players would be interesting if they had actual storage on there. 48 GB max makes them worthless.

Really wish they'd make a ~4" device with big storage

Archos seems like one of the last companies that are still interested in putting out devices with a decent amount of storage. Unfortunately they seem to have decided to only do it for their larger devices. I'd really like to have an option for an mp3 player with 120+ GB other than an ipod classic.

Re: alternate music playsers HDD version

This is the only reason I haven't bought an A70. Definitely won't consider it until this ridiculous flaw is fixed. Sucks, because it's the only android tablet with enough storage for my music collection.

Re: Woah! The Archos 7 Android!

The feature I most want is direct video out through the headphone jack, like the older players. It's a bummer they eliminated that.

Re: List of Bluetooth tethering phones that work

I run WiFi router on my Windows Mobile smartphone (HTC), which basically turns the 3G connection it into a wifi hotspot. Free software. Very nice. Works great, so I just connect via Wifi, rather than Bluetooth. I find this more reliable. I thought the Archos couldn't use ad hoc networks. Maybe that...

Re: Feature requests

I'm not positive, but it seems pretty common to use ISOs in the networked media tank world. Other than it being a little more clean than ripping DVDs in file mode (1 file/disc vs dozons), I believe that one benefit is that you don't have to deal layer breaks if you ever want to reburn them to double...

Re: Feature requests

I'm guessing it doesn't play DVD .iso files. If not, that's a feature I require before purchasing. What PMPs do you know play DVD .iso files? None, but I wasn't aware a PMP had to already have a feature to request said feature for the A5. I use ISOs for my HTPC and plenty of media centers (some whi...
