Re: Archos 70 Android Tablet (250GB) or Samsung Galaxy

The galaxy tab 7 wifi is available now at amazon for $350.00. I think Archos is in trouble to compete with Samsung at this price. It's worth noting, though, that the tab you mention is the first gen Galaxy, not the Tab II. This is actually the most important point of the fact that the Galaxy Tab is...

Re: Boxwave Compactive Stylus for A70

Personally, I have never heard of a compactive screen, only the resistive and the capacitive type screens. Resistive is a single touuch screen and the capacitive screen is a multi touch screen. I have the stylus made for the Ipad and it works just fine as the Ipad is also a capacitive screen. Milt ...

Re: Forum replies

That's really strange.

I respond to messages on several forums with no issues whatsoever with my A7o.

Re: World series of poker: Hold'em Legend does it work?

From reading the reviews it sounds like it's not a very good port of the game, anyways.

I have it on my iPod Touch and it's pretty good...but the Android version sounds like they basically just copied the PC version tit for tat, and left things like double clicking and everything in place.

Re: Amazon App Store Rocks

Is there anything proprietary from there that you cannot get from the Google Market (besides Angry Birds Rio)? Not sure why I would need it... Cheaper? It doesn't need some wonky hack or odd manipulations to work. That is a very good point. I had not thought of it. I guess it is also one less accou...

Re: Fans can you help me choosing a logo for my GEN8 Android

I like 3, and I'm voting because I'm REALLY interested in this idea. I have a Logitech Harmony remote that's on it's way out the door. It's been beat on pretty good over the years (my x-wife tried to bend it in half one day when she was mad at one of our dogs) so it hasn't worked the greatest since ...

Re: Boxwave Compactive Stylus for A70

Um, the screen on the A70 is plastic If it's a capacitive screen, a capacitive stylus will work. The screen is covered with a clear conductor. Your finger is also a conductor. When you touch the screen, it's electric field changes. That change is measured in capacitance, and that is sent to the A7o...

Re: Amazon appstore works

I'm thinking I might roll the dice and just remove the Market from my device and just rely on Amazon to get me the apps I need.

If push comes to shove, I can always install the market again at a later date...or just use the online market as well.

Considering Apple had sold over 5.6 billion Apps by the end of last year, it would seem they are doing fine.

Re: Google Voice how to?

I've read a few times on this forum that if you can get Google Voice installed, it usually causes nothing but trouble, and then becomes VERY difficult to completely remove.

For that reason alone, I'm leaving it off of the device.

Re: Amazon appstore works

I like it. I'm a big fan of Amazon, and now that I'll be able to get some apps from there, I may finally be able to remove the wonky "fixed" Market from my A7o. I also like that Amazon has come right out and said that even devices that aren't built to support the Android Market will be supported, wh...

Mini Squadron Special Edition...

Just got Mini Squadron Special Edition on my A70. Graphics look good and the play is really smooth. I am running into some sound issues after about 20 minutes of playing, but only with the music. The sound effects still work just fine. To be honest, it's not a big deal, because after about 30 minute...

Re: Dolphin vs Dolphin Hd vs Dolphin Mini

Alright... I'm an idiot.

I thought I had cleared the user data in HD the other day... but i never did. So here i've been thinking that the program was like 30 megs, but in reality it is only like 7 megs.

With this new information, HD is my clear winner.

Re: Dolphin vs Dolphin Hd vs Dolphin Mini

Alright... I've been working with Dolphin HD and Dolphin Mini. I ruled out regular Dolphin because it didn't have the nice fullscreen mode that Mini and HD have. So far both have positives and negatives. I like Mini because it's so much smaller in size. But the problem with Mini is the zoom defaults...
