Re: CNET tells readers to skip the Archos Gen 9 tablets!

I am personally quite happy that I did not skip gen9 as I had planned. Now that Archos has promised to keep the usb host functionality of the 3g port, I am thrilled. I dont want another 10" Android tablet because I have a Windows 7 tablet, and the 8" is wonderful for me. I.will probably be selling ...

CNET tells readers to skip the Archos Gen 9 tablets!

So I was just browsing CNET (which I don't do very much anymore) and I saw a link that said "Skip These Android Tablets". Out of curiosity I clicked the link, and lo and behold, It was a video review (well, first look) of the Archos Gen 9. The video is from last week, so forgive me if this was alrea...

Google Voice updated for tablets

Howdy all. I used to have to sideload an old version of Google Voice because my Archos could never see it in the market. Now Google has updated the app for tablets, and our Archos can now find and install straight from the market.

Just a heads up.

Re: Product Recall

Re: Hi, I am Craig from ARCHOS

Hey Craig. Good to have you.

I won't bore you with tons of questions about specs and prices, release dates and future Android upgrade promises. I just have one question...

Can you send me a free 80 Gen9?

I'll understand if you can't but I won't be your friend anymore.

Re: My take on Gen 9 and Tegra 3. (Please Read)

I think the Playbook's multitasking prowess has something to do with it's 1GB of RAM, which, if Archos is smart, is on it's way into the Gen9. At this point, there really is no reason to have less than 1GB in a new tablet anyway. And I think Archos got an earful about the Gen8 RAM problems, so hopef...

Re: Archos Gen9 event is streaming live now

Just some initial impressions. I think the design is much improved over Gen8 (assuming that the video posted on their website is an actual design, not just a rendering) I also like the way that they implemented the 3G stick. I guess this allows them to make one type of device and give users the opti...

Re: Not only Archos with issues

I agree that devices can, and should be compared, to a certain point. Comparing devices that came out in the same 4-6 month span is a good idea, but comparing devices with generational gaps (at least to me) is pointless. Comparing the graphics from an Atari to the graphics of modern-day video games...

Re: Not only Archos with issues

I agree with many of the replies to the OP. I would be superbly satisfied with my A70 if Archos fixed two things (yeah, I hope you're listening, Monsieur) 1. Bluetooth Tethering. I needed it and you promised it and so far i've gotten zilch with three totally different phones (N900, Cliq, HTC G2). An...

Re: Wireless Keyboard for Archos 101

I really really apologize for resing this dead topic, but I want to know if the OP actually bought this keyboard and got it to work (or anyone else).

I am looking for a BT keyboard, but they all seem so expensive except the one the OP posted (it's on Amazon for $23).

Re: List of Bluetooth tethering phones that work on Froyo

I am thinking about getting a T-Mobile G2. I really love the keyboard and the design. The only question I have is whether anyone has had any success tethering it (via WiFi or BT) to their Archos 70 or 101. I haven't had any success with my Cliq, but it would be nice to finally be able to tether like...

Re: Honeycomb firmware 3.0.01 released for Gen8 report bugs

Ok, since it's now April 2nd, maybe you should change the title to add an Aprils fools notation. Cause you really got my hopes up (I didn't see it yesterday). It's not really April fools now, it's just a really cruel joke.

Re: Android Market... DONE

In the OPs defense, I did use Arctools when I wiped and installed the latest firmware (2.1.8) because its a bit easier and seems to give the full market without the need for the usual "market fix" (you know...settings, force close market, blah blah blah). I still don't know why he wanted us to PM hi...

Re: Why?.

The issue is with the Brick and Mortar stores and perhaps a last ditch effort of archos to empty their own stock of the out of date tablets. I recently had this discussion with a Best Buy sales person and the poor sap he was trying to sell an archos 7 too for full 199 price. While these have been a...

Re: Will Archos address storage?

Honestly, this is one of the few things that I don't like about my A70 (Bluetooth tethering doesn't work also). If there is a solution coming from XDA, that would be great. But hopefully Archos will take heed of our displeasure and do this when they (hopefully) upgrade us to 2.3/2.4. Man, I wish I k...

Dude, get a SquareTrade warranty. The SANTA coupon code should still get you both regular and accidental coverage for 50 bucks. Sounds like it's worth it for you. :)
