Re: RAM confirmation for the Turbo model

Has anyone benchmarked the classic and turbo models for a comparison? I have heard some people still complain about slowness when switching apps on the classic. How does the Turbo compare? I'm really considering this getting this now as I just got my money back for the Archos 70 I bought last year (...

RAM confirmation for the Turbo model

Since the Turbo model is already on sale, can anyone out there confirm how much RAM it has?

Re: What happens with the guarantee???

User Guide should have instructions to run a full recovery, then reinstall the firmware. Your firmware installation likely didn't go through correctly.

Re: Fairwell Archos, you have been great to me.

Archos is probably one (if not the best) at giving firmware updates LOL its a joke? Archos has released 13 firmware revisions/updates for the G8. That's 1 update per month that the G8 has been out. As a comparison, the Galaxy Tab has only had 3 firmware updates in the US in the same timeframe.

Re: Fairwell Archos, you have been great to me.

The Acer has already been returned. Really?! You returned it rather than installing another video player app (many of which are free)? No matter what tablet you buy there will always be formats/codecs that aren't supported by the stock player. Even the Archos stock player won't play AC3 audio or MP...

Re: Archos RAM

I was really holding out for the G9 to be great (and I hope it still is) but I was lucky enough to get an HP TouchPad for $90. First thing I did was OC it to 1.7 GHz. Handles multi-tasking much better than the reviewed G9 did. I'm not too worried about getting Android on there as there's an awesome ...

Re: Archos RAM

I actually decided to order a Touchpad from HP this weekend for $99 to hold me over. It's missing a few features of the G9 (USB host, SD slot, HDMI out), but it's got 1GB of RAM and can be OCed to 1.7 GHz. And for $5, there's a video app to play about every codec out there. There's already a team wo...

Re: Archos RAM

So the g9 probably won't get an update to ice creamsandwich ...512 MB probably wont be enough ....so the CPU doesn't matter there At least by hitting minimum spec with their tablets, Archos guarantees return business for when the next Android release comes out. Just like the G8 not running Honeycom...

Re: Archos RAM

I've not been able to find anything definitive about Ziilabs Jaguar, but that 7 incher is sweet. Looks like they may offer some higher gig SSD options too. I'm pretty sure that they won't be selling the actual tablet themselves. It looks like they're just making a bunch of OEM parts that manufactur...

Re: Archos RAM

The first video is actually the W500 Iconia. Sorry I meant to paste this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYIzy3xrdEo. Different people report different experiences playing 720p on the Iconia. However, the majority of people don't know how their movies are encoded, with what codec, and what bitr...

Re: Archos RAM

BTW - From what I've seen, HD video playback on the Iconia is fine. Have you some links to proof it? If it's true than Iconia could be my first tablet... :D :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yC-_tH2W7k shows someone playing a 720p MKV, 720p MP4, and a 720p RMVB. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNkz...

Re: Archos RAM

Just by you considering Archos as an option, you are hoping for some kind of cost saving. By adding a dock and case you will be set back by 130.00 if you get the Transformer and an additional 30.00 if you get Iconia. These features are already built in a tablet which is cheaper by about 30.00 (if t...

Re: Archos RAM

cons of getting other tablets -codec support not as great as Archos' -no USB host on tablet -no kickstand -no hard drive versions Not quite. Codec support may not as great for the *stock* player, but there are other players out there (free and paid) with better codec support. (The only thing that k...

Re: Hi, I am Craig from ARCHOS

It will be a sad day if Archos does not keep to the specs & prices they have been advertising all these months. I for one will not be a victim of this bait and switch scheme they seem to be moving towards. I've held off purchasing a tablet for a few months now, waiting for what Archos has promised ...

Yes, he really is 14.

I think you should save your money for useful things (college, car, food,...) rather than spending it on toys.

Re: Prices Announced For Gen 9 8" 8 Gig Models

Not gonna pay $300 minimum for a 8GB tablet. The G8 101 8GB was $300 at release last year. Prices for G9 are $50 higher than announced 2 months ago, but are still (currently) the best bang for your buck (even though they don't fit with the original price scheme). We'll see what the competition is l...

Re: 8Gb storage and 1GHz CPU for base G9 tablets??

It's true. Base model is now 1GHz CPU (not 1.5) with 8 GB storage. Check their store . 16 GB 8" is 1.5 GHz CPU, but 16 GB 10" is 1.0 GHz. I'm not fond of that, and it worries me what the RAM will be as their specs pages aren't complete still. Prices are still (currently) the best bang for your buck ...
