This isn't even mentioned on Archos' support/download page or even on their facebook page... Guess everyone is up for an upgrade soon... I don't...

Warranty on replacement unit

Hey guys I recently got a replacement unit from Archos because my original unit had the faulty usb and I still had a few more months left on my warranty. My question is, what is the status of the warranty on this replacement unit? is there a new warranty or does my warranty just default to it? Thank...

Re: Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 Honeycomb rumors and facts

There are lots of companies out there that will give updates to new OS's even if it was "never stated" Archos is not necessarily the most popular Electronics manufacturer on the block so they would greatly benefit by going above and beyond to keep their customers happy. And that includes unannounced...

Re: Help with low system storage om Archos 10.1 16 gig

Thats interesting that the Archos rep told you that you could move the apps to another part of your device.

People here have either been using apps2sd or rooting and expanding the apps partition themselves manually.

Re: Archos 70 or Archos 101

I find myself kicking myself a little bit for buying the 70 since I had a Droid (And now a Droid 3) so the screen wasn't that much bigger. Had my eye on getting a 101, too, but now I changed my focus to a Windows Tablet. :o Was on the fence about this... I'm planning on updating both my tablet and ...

Re: Archos 70 or Archos 101

I've had them both - found the 101 to be more useful due to the bigger screen size, just seemed more practical for me!

Re: Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 Honeycomb rumors and facts

I must admit I was really surprised to find this mentioned by ARCHOS on facebook. When asked if Gen8 would see anything beyond Android 2.2 OSes, the response was... " Official ARCHOS, Inc. ÔÇÄ@Glen, it won't go to 3.0, but 2.3 is a possibility. I know nothing has been finalized yet though. " As har...
