Re: Android 2.3 will we get this

Looks like Arnova launched Gingerbread tablets in Hong Kong. Would love to hear from Archos if this means we get the Gingerbread update for the Archos 70. From the surface they look very similar spec wise (also Cortex A8 CPU). . I bought in Honkong a Gingerbread MID on telechip 8803, very fast; arr...

Re: Android 2.3 will we get this

From a business point of view I understand why Archos won't update the A70it. From a user point of view I'm faced with a choice. ...... Even from a business point of view I don't understand archos's policy. There area rarely people who buy every half year a new gadget like an 70IT. Most people keep...

Re: Android 2.3 will we get this

So call me silly but why cant they update the software then ? If all companies supported old devices indefinitely, there would be no push for new devices, which would cause the industry to stand still. Sorry, this is not a good argument against software updates. One thing is to have new devices ano...

Re: two foot drop on to a carpet kills A70 250gb?

I did the same thing on a 8Gb model, cracked screen from 2 ft drop onto carpet (knocked off coffee table). I then swore a lot and made a lot of disparaging remarks about French workmanship Took them 3 weeks to replace it (Australia) but at least they did so. Now I always keep it in a leather case M...

LCD broken

I read in this forum, that there are a lot of people who have problems with the archos 70IT LCD, when it falls on the ground. So did mine today; it fell on a carpet covering parkett. That is normally not very hard; but the LCD crashed; the display still functions but the touch screen is out. I belie...

Re: standard e-mail apps for archos 70 it

I noticed that on the 101 also. I guess you'd have to delete the account and start over! So far, it's not been a big deal, but it shouldn't be a menu option if it doesn't do anything. well,it is a way around but not a solution. I hope that the developers will repair this bad mistake asap. similar i...

Re: Best ways to install the Google Marketplace

I find ArcTools works really well. You can get it from the AppsLib Market. I fully agree; for a layman in Android it is streight forward; only important: create really a new account with Google; forget about the accounts you have already with them; and you need to create a gmail address; I did it b...
