Re: Exchange?

I tried mine as soon as I got it, so would have been eclair. Worked first time and synced my calendar, email and contacts. I then removed it because I have no intention of using it for work :D

Re: The CATCHPHA is very hard to read

There is a difference between hard to read which I would consider something I need to look at and read for a moment and almost impossible to read first time.

It is not a big deal, just an annoyance and this site is one of the very few sites I have ever had any trouble reading a CATCHPHA image.

Re: Power issues with new software update.

Rather than a new post, I reckon this belongs here. I did the deep sleep thing last night and I just turned it on and it came straight on with everything working, including wi-fi and all this was in the blink of an eye. Battery was 99% which is a loss of only 1% in about 20 hours. Is there a way to ...

Re: Gmail on the Archos 101

Yes, its part of the google market install or you can install it manually from the market if you elect not to install the google apps.

Get the latest version, 5 I think is the current one. There is a thread floating around here somewhere.

Re: Power issues with new software update.

I have had this twice so far. It was resolved by plugging it in and after a few moments holding in the power button. When it comes up, the battery had been pretty much drained but the last time it was used the night before it would have been about 80% or more. Something must be draining the battery ...

Re: online registration ... could not install codec pack

I don't have the paid codec pack but I have yet to come across a video that does not play. That said I have only watched about 4 movies on it so I am not sure if they were AC3 or not.

Re: [Review] My accessories (case and screen protector)

I just ordered this case. I ordered the screen protector from them as well as it worked out the same price if not cheaper than the ebay one. I have read of people with problems with getting their order. Perhaps they were all in the US? Also I know those cases only came in to stock recently as I look...

For those unfamiliar, on an iphone or ipad, if up hold down your finger in a text box it zooms in making placing the cursor simple. On android this is frustrati...

The CATCHPHA is very hard to read

I entered the wrong password a few times and I had to enter a CATCHPHA but on the Archos 101 it was impossible to read. I got home and used my laptop and imagine my surprise that it is still very hard to read. I entered it wrong a couple of times on my laptop.

Re: 2 weeks on vacation with my 101

Just back from a week in Alabama over Christmas. Going over I did not have it fully charged and I played angry birds for a while at the gate. When I got on I had two movies to watch. I did not get to finish the second one before I got a 15% battery warning. Coming back (to Ireland) I had it fully ch...

Re: Pricing differences US/EU

My 16gb was 349 in a shop in Dublin. Ireland like the UK includes VAT in the price but at 21%. I could have got it for less online. Its the same price in US$ in best buy but tax is not included in that price so they match up pretty well.
