Re: PSX4Droid on archos 28

I seriously doubt that you'd get smooth performance out of it. Have you considered the 32? 256MB of RAM would probably help v. the 128 that the 28 has.

Re: Is it normal to have <40 RAM?

Yeah. Running Angry Birds can be an adventure. Although if you play it right after booting you might have some luck. Oh and its probably best to try it with wifi off. And that would probably go for games in general, you don't want any of the internet programs to be running in the background (like em...

Re: WiFi connection problems on my 28

Try disabling powersave mode. That should help strengthen the connection. You do it by pressing on the router you want to connect to and hold down on it. When the popup window appears scroll down and check "disable powersave". It helped my connection. Also be sure not to cover the lower ri...

Is it safe to assume that this wouldn't work on the 28-32 since they don't have SD card slots?

Re: Wow. It's dead on the second day?

Yeah the same has happened to me. Here's the strange part. I have two phone chargers that use the same USB connection as the 28. I used one to charge it after this problem occurred the first time and it charged the device. Then the same thing happened. The phone charger wouldn't charge it so I used ...

Re: Can anyone run youtube successfully on archos 28?

I've been able to play youtube vids. And I've also been able to play angry birds. You should go to settings>applications>manage apps. Make sure that there aren't any apps running that you don't need to be running. I usually find that the e-mail apps run in the background as well as Archos services. ...

Re: This device is pure crap!

I usually get a lot of lag with games and Pandora as well. You should have gone to the "Manage Running Apps" or something like that settings. TBH I don't think System Monitor is of much help. I used it several times before playing Angry Birds, but it'd still lag and eventually freeze. On t...

Re: Best Buy ??

I thought they were going to be selling the new gen. online only. At least that's what I think I've heard and what I've seen (the 32 is only available online). And here, in NYC at least, they've been taking out the 5 and putting up the 7 HT :| I hope they at least get the 43 and 70 in store.

Re: 28 battery life

Its been fair so far for me. But I know I wouldn't be getting great battery life, so its not like I'm disappointed or anything. With mixed use it usually last me about 14 hours give or take.

Re: [Yet another topic on] Ship Date for 43?

Nice to hear the JnR preorders are going through fine, though, how did you guys order it? I can't seem to find it on their website. They took them down a while ago. If you're in New York, you might want to check at their store (think I'll be doing that pretty soon). I had signed up for an e-mail up...

They confirmed that nothing has changed in their system and they still expect to receive the shipment for 43 16gig on Nov 1st.

I really hope I have it by the 2nd!!!

Did you preorder it? If not did they tell you the price it'd be?

Re: I call BS on these Gen 8 tablets

Re: Archos 43 preorder spotted in North America

I'm totally lost right now... $249.99 for the 16gig on Amazon. J&R no longer lists any of the gen 8 tablets. Also went to their NYC store and no sign of the 32. B&H also doesn't list the 8GB 43 and the 16GB is listed as $245. The 32 is listed as in stock online, but when I went to their stor...

Re: If money were no object...

Well if I were to get a phone then I'd probably get a Palm Pre Plus(love WebOS), Nokia N9, T-Mobile G2, Samsung Focus, or a Samsung Epic 4G. If it were a media player then I'd probably still consider the Archos 32/43, but I'd also have a strong consideration for the iPod Touch, Cowon J3, or Viliv P3.

Re: So what do you plan to do for Storage?

So I've been thinking of maybe getting a 32. Obviously there is no microSD slot. So I was thinking of velcro'ing a 32GB flashdrive to the back. But I was just wondering what effects USB hosting has on battery life and whether or not the contents would fully integrate to the music/video playing apps.

Re: Archos 3.2 IT : I have this..

Just a quick question relating to something that was talked about earlier. Does USB hosting adversely affect the 32's battery life? And how smoothly is data (specifically music/videos) from a USB key integrated with the 32?
