Re: Lenovo 10.1 Quadcore 1.6Ghz 2 Gb RAM versus Archos

Let's guess what's the next comment by Archos (or maybe by Charbax?):

"2GB RAM? Lenovo is so dumb. They don't know, that nobody needs more than 512 MB of RAM."

Re: Archos Director Software Engineering: Android 4.0, 512MB

Let's come to terms: You are still ignorant about multitasking. Have a look at Firefox for Android - it requires at least 512 MB RAM. And it's requiring this _alone_. That means, if you are opening 10 tabs with web pages and in the background you have been reading a book recently with the kindle app...

Re: Archos Director Software Engineering: Android 4.0, 512MB

a higher density does not display more info on the screen I never stated differently. And I know what I'm talking about when talking about DPI. There's a good reason, I prefer a 14-inch laptop with 1600x900 over a model with 1366x768. When we read print media, it's no illusion when 300 dpi look nic...

@af2000: I totally agree! @charbax: - What Marc says at appx. 35:20-36:20 is: "Archos expects to have access to it in November. At that time they will tell if Archos can implement ICS in the Gen 9. If so, it may implement it (subject, so)." (thanks to BenMars' translation) Look at what you wrote: "A...

Re: Will be sending back my Archos 80 G9

Which kind of VPN do you have? Cisco, PPTP or OpenVPN? Afaik, only PPTP is supported by Android (except for Ice Cream Sandwich). Are you using an app to connect to the VPN?

Since you say, it's working with your Transformer, what exactly is different with your Archos 80?

Nice idea, but your case has to be rather stiff then. And that equals heavy... Not good for every day use.

Now we still have two major bugs in this firmware, I'm experiencing both of them: 1. Some certain apps (e.g. Documents to go Free) can't be installed from the market.

Those are not based on official statements by Archos, are they? So there is still no guarantee for the accuracy of that information.
