Archos as a baby video monitor

Hi, I'm looking into using my beloved Archos 43 into a video monitor at home. I'm thinking about using that Foscam FI8918W IP/IR/Wifi camera in the baby room, and using my Archos as the monitor, with an apk I don't know yet. Did anyone setup something similar with an Archos? Is it complex? Advices? ...

No silicone case/skin in the plan for me... and probably not a good mix with the leather case I described above since it's already pretty much tight on the 135mm length.

Re: Google Voice and Making Calls

I make calls directly from my Archos using Sipdroid and my Google Voice account (not the app). It works great!

Re: Leather Case for 43 IT

In comparison with the Archos 43, the Motorola Droid X is the common device with the closest dimensions I found: Archos 43 = 135 x 65 x 9 mm Droid X = 127.5 x 65.5 x 9.9 mm I just bought a cheap leather case from Amazon with good Droid X fit reviews from users.

If it made its way to Vancouver and to NL, it's a pretty good guess!

Mine was pre-ordered (I purchased first week on January), I don't recall being provided with an expected date. Here ...

Re: Should I let the battery completely drain on first use?

To simply answer the initial question: NO. Unlike nickel and lead-based batteries, a new lithium-ion pack does not need cycling through charging and discharging. The most important is to make sure you give it a full charge the first time. Completely drain a Li-ion battery wonÔÇÖt help battery life (...

Re: US availability, links to stores that have it in stock

Just received shipping notification from Canada Post with an anticipated delivery date of January 20th. I expect that the parcel itself won't make it into Canada Post's system until Friday or Monday as Scott indicated earlier today, but am excited nonetheless. Heh. I've been irritated since Tuesday...
