Re: $!25 Archos 70c? Whats the catch?

I have no special love for the A70 Ereader. My theme though is that Archos might want spend some creative energy coming up with a name that indicated that this is an Ereader and not a tablet. For the uninitiated Archos non-aficionado it is confusing kind of confusing. How about "E70"? I was online c...

Re: $!25 Archos 70c? Whats the catch?

"There are some tempting deals out there in the 7" world (Newegg, e.g., has refurb'ed Samsung Galaxy p1010s for $234.)"

Pray tell tempting deals in the 7" world?

Re: $!25 Archos 70c? Whats the catch?

Missed OJ's missive. One 'Jim' is me. I am not sure if there are other Jims on this thread. "I think the OP's 101 is dead, Jim. :) At this point, it's only good for a few dollars off the price of a replacement G8 101 from the Archos store, as far as I can tell from what he posted.

Re: $!25 Archos 70c? Whats the catch?

Whaoooooooa Nelly. Two VERY different animals. I was looking at the trees too intently to see the forest. The specs looked very similar if not the same to the tablet. I forgot to look at the pictures carefully. I already knew what it looked like. 7 inches and black with "A70" on it. You would think ...

$!25 Archos 70c? Whats the catch?

Hi all, I am seeing these Archos 70c gadgets selling for $125 at a couple of places and am wondering what the catch is. Here is one: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/753843-REG/Archos_501712_70c_eReader.html What I don't get is the 'c' in Archos 70c. I looked at the official Archos website and ...

Difficulty of replacing a 101 screen?

I have a cracked screen and am wondering if anyone out there has replaced one from another 101. I am thinking of getting a parts 101 and salvaging the screen. I see that it has those really tiny Torx screws holding it together. If I can find a bit small enough to fit that is it pretty straight forwa...

Re: Cracked screen...any hope for me?

Also re:
"but you won't be able to fix the crack without replacing the whole screen."

Is it possible to replace the screen? Or have someone do it for me? Are there people who specialize in working
on these things?

Thanks,

Re: Cracked screen...any hope for me?

Excellent idea. I have a keyboard so I guess I only need to get a usb splitter of some kind to also have a wireless mouse attached.
At the very least I should be able to back stuff up.

Cracked screen...any hope for me?

I cracked my 101 screen and the display shows as normal but the touch screen does not work.
Is there anybody who fixes these or is it scrap metal now?

Re: What are icons at top of screen?

Very cool. It is like a pull down log. It is amazing what you can do on these with a few very light touches. I never thought I would be typing with my thumbs and kind of enjoying it.

Thanks very much.

Calendar or scheduler for Android and Windows?

Is there such a thing as a calendar or scheduler application that runs on Android and Windows?
I have and enjoy "Touch Calendar" but I would really like to have a copy of the same on my PC.
Is there any software that will allow that?

Thanks

Frightening A101 experience

I just had the scare of my A101 life. It has been working great since Christmas. No problems at all. Today I push the on button and...nothing. No light no anything. So I plug it in the AC and press the button and keep the button down. Finally the light comes on. This is after pressing the button for...

Wireless keyboard nominations

I am looking for wireless keyboard recommendations.
My only requirement is that it is a full size keyboard.....but as small as possible.
And of course that it works with my trusty A101.

Thanks very much,

Re: Gingerbread Keyboard Issue

Got it! Thank you very much. I almost got stumped with the 'long press' thing. Is there a universal meaning to doing a 'long press'? I take it the keyboard is an improvement in that it does a great job of predicting what words you are going to type thus saving you the trouble of typing the entire wo...

Re: Gingerbread Keyboard Issue

Newbie question.
I have downloaded the Gingerbread keyboard.
How do I use it now?
I clicked on the icon and it comes up with:
"Find out more"
"Download Better Keyboard"
"Hide from Launcher"

Then it takes me to download the 'Better Keyboard' which costs.

Thanks,
Jim

Where to download ADW Launcher?

I am on Froyo but for some reason I do not have ADW launcher in my Market.
Is there some other way that I can download and install it?
Everytime I think that I am getting it it looks in my Market and does not find it and that is
the end.

Thanks very much,
