Re: Did I get a lemon?

No you didn't get a lemon. But you did get an older piece of technology that by today's standards is a dinosaur. I had an Archos 101 and used it for a while but the laundry list of problems it came with and the laggy performance I experienced was maddening to say the least. You probably wont like th...

Re: Owner Reviews - A101

There's obvious "stutter" with some apps which mkes me think the lack of memory is showing it's age for this device. Nice for casual use, but I think it's had it's day otherwise. This is going to be an inherent problem for a while with ALL tablet devices. The hardware technology is moving very quic...

Re: Decent 101 Cover / Case

I was kind of lucky. I found an old leather note book cover I hadn't used in years when I was cleaning some old junk out of the basement. I was going to throw it out but i suddenly thought "Huh... I wonder if the Archos would fit in there." Long story short it was a perfect fit. I have to fold it ov...

Re: Something for Facebook

I can get Words with Friends and I think poker to play because there are apps for them.

Re: WINDOWS 8???

And now without the unnecessary Sarcasm: No one knows and no one will know until the beta gets released. From what I have read 8 will be well optimized for ARM based tablets but again it is going to depend a lot on the hardware of the 101 and it's capabilities. @ Karel: Windows 7 has been a flawless...

Re: orientation lag on app icons

I tried Zeam, but found I liked VTL a bit better because it allowed adjustments to the throw speed. It made the interface seem much quicker.

There are several out there you can use, so try them all and see what suits you best.

Re: Android upgrade for us?

OK so I have been watching people complain about not having Gingerbread on thier tablet for months, but I have never seen anyone explain why it is so important to them.

Anyone?

Re: Southparkstudios flash movies not working

Interesting... I have a lot of problems with videos from everywhere I try to view them (They are either extremely choppy or the video just locks up while the audio continues playing) is it just on that one site you are having trouble?

Re: Prevent Background processes??

There are apps in the appstore and marketplace that will help with this. Advanced task Killer is one that first comes to mind.

While they wont stop those apps from starting up, it will kill running programs that are not needed. Some dont like ATK, I use it and have had good results so far.

Re: Firmware 2.4.19 released - report bugs here

Firmware works great so far, have not experienced any bugs except for rare app crashes which is due to the app itself (checked the reviews after the app crashed, turns out some other people had the same problem). I'm not sure if the Default launcher is any faster with the firmware because i started...

Hmmm... That doesn't sound entertaining to me at all.

You might need to reload Android. Can you get into the troubleshooting screens by holding the power button and up on the volume?

I don't think you are neccessarily "TOAST" but you might have to start from scratch.

It happens. #-o

Hey RevKev. you migt want to try some searches on the forum. I know there are some apps that help with tethering. I couldn't get it to work with my 3G EVO without rooting the phone, which would require me going back to Froyo which since I am already on Gingerbread I really dont want to go back to it...

Re: ARNOVA 10" G2 Gingerbread 2.3 > Archos 101

Mmmmmmm... no.

For whatever it's worth, it was never stated the 101 would be upgradable to Gingerbread.

The 101 is what it is for now. A froyo Tablet.

T'would be cool if they did, but I'm not counting on it.
