Re: archos 80 g9 turbo vs "Google Nexus tablet"

With the announced Samsung Galaxy Mega (5.8" and 6.3"), phones are no longer too small.

Re: ARCHOS 101 G9 & GMAIL

When you use the browser to go to GMail, you are not using the app.
When you are at the Home Screen of the tablet, do you see six white dots in the right upper corner?
When you click on the dots, do you see the GMail app?

Re: another tablet? NEXUS 7

G9 has micro SD slot, 3G slot that doubles as full USB port and HDMI.
N7 has better (IPS) screen, faster quad core chip and latest Android version.

But there are rumours that Google will announce the next generation N7 next month.
Expect prices of the current N7 to drop after that.

Re: GPL compliance, when?

Why are you so interested in this?

Archos will probably not disclose the source for the proprietary part (like the mapping tool).
Archos only needs to disclose the Android kernel and that's it.
The GPL doesn't force you to disclose proprietary parts build on top of the Android kernel.

Re: loading pics on 9 7 carbon tablet

What camera is it? Can you connect the camera to the USB port of the Carbon?
You can also see if your camera can store the images on a micro SD card (perhaps with the help of a full size SD adapter).

Re: Archos 80 g9 can be used as a display trhough HDMI port?

I would install VNC on the Pi and a VNC Client/Viewer on the Archos. This has the advantage that you don't even need a cable. But there can be a bit of lag, depending on load on the Pi and network. http://raspi.tv/2012/install-and-use-tightvnc-remote-desktop-on-raspberry-pi-through-windows-android-o...

Re: Official 4.0.26 released - report bugs

I upgraded my Archos 80 8GB without problems. Memory consumption is much better now. Inserting a micro SD card seems to slow down the tablet when it has a lot of media files. Once the scanning is finished, the slow down is gone.

Or at least give us the option to choose if we want the screen to light up when we use remote.

Re: Xbox Smart glass app

MS are just a bunch of morons. I read that they marked it as incompatible with the Nexus 7, but people sideloaded the app and it works.

Looks like MS doesn't know how to develop for Android.
Makes you wonder what that will mean for W8.

Re: 64GB microsd cards don't work formated to exfat...

Just to add my experience. I bought a Sandisk 64GB micro SD card with SD adapter. I also have a Lexar micro SD USB reader, but that one only goes up to 32 GB. With Ubuntu and the Lexar USB reader the card was presented as 32 GB. So my first conclusion is that you need a card reader that really goes ...

Re: Cant get fullscreen when connection via HDMI

I thought only the Archos Video Player will display in widescreen through HDMI.
Since the Archos 80 display is 4:3 and not 16:9, you will need a special app that creates a new video buffer in widescreen.

Ext2 might be an option too.
Although Ext4 without journalling (if supported by Archos) would be my preference.

Re: Archos Slipping

Looks like even Samsung is abandoning the 5" media player market with their new 5.8" media player. But if you follow the money stream, it's not coming from small media players with large storage. I was afraid that G10 was only going to be sold with keyboard, but I think it's good that Archos decided...

Re: Alert to all gamers- Get this instead!

It looks a bit worrying that this topic gets so little response. Seeing a price of 150 euro, this looks very competitive. But I fear it will have a cheap MVA screen. According to Forbes (of all websites???) it will come with micro SD. http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2012/08/29/the-archos-...
