Re: My experience with ARCHOS and the 101xs (BAD EXPERIENCE)

I had almost the exact same experience with the 101G9 (unable to select at the edges of the touchscreen) starting in June 2012. After waiting 5 weeks from the point my device was RMA'd, I finally received a replacement - which was actually *more* defective. The touchscreen on the replacement device ...

Does ANYONE know if the 101 XS will be released in the US?

Archos announced several new products over the last week but remains silent about their failure to release the 101 XS in the US. Is there any information about the cause of the delay and Archos' refusal to provide any updates?

Any idea when 101 XS will be released in the US?

Archos indicated in August the 101 XS would be available in November . Two months after this expected release date, the 101 XS is still not available in the US, Archos has made no comment about the delay, and continues to be available (and restocked) in Europe . I have searched repeatedly for any de...

Re: New Google Play (market) apk gives access to movies-but!

The issue with Google Play Video is NOT unique to the Archos, but rather an issue with the application and is effecting other devices (see Google Code issue # 26622 ). I have no idea how quickly Google will get this fixed, but I have gone from being unable to watch videos at all to at least being ab...

Re: ICS (Android 4.0) to all G9s

I really like ICS but am wondering about the DRM support - I can't find any information about it or how it's implemented. Thanks, Craig, I think we're extremely lucky having an Archos representative in our midst. Can you please clarify that all the G9 tablets have the Haptic vibration hardware and h...

Re: How's Ice Cream Sandwich working out for you?

My anger/annoyance with Archos is the complete lack of communication. Nothing on their website provides a clue about the ICS release. When you try to contact support, they do not have a clue. When you try and contact someone who should have an idea, they have the wrong clue. I do not buy the idea th...

SDXC support for G9 devices?

Does anyone know if SDXC support is possible on the G9 devices? I cannot determine if SDXC host support is entirely hardware related, or if a firmware upgrade could add this to the G9 series. Also, since the default format for SDXC is exFat, and the G9 supports this, is it possible SDXC cards may wo...

Re: please help me make a quick decision: g8 or g9?

I would definitely recommend the G9. I went through three G8 devices (A101 - A43 is fine) and all had major problems with the touch screen (first 2 the touch along the edges did not work, the 3rd *only* the touch along the edge worked). I have been happy with the A101 G9.

Re: Why is "Google Videos" app not compatible with 101 G9?

Adobe Flash Player was already installed; having read some of the posts about problems with Flash 11.1, I removed it and installed 10.1 but still no luck. The 101 G9 has YouTube (version 3.2.4) installed, but the market shows this app is not compatible with this device. The YouTube and Google Videos...

Why is "Google Videos" app not compatible with 101 G9?

The Google Videos app shows as not being compatible with the 101 G9, although it works with the Archos G8 devices (required manually installing the Android Market). Google cannot explain why this app works on the G8 devices but not on the certified G9 devices. Any ideas on why it doesn't work - or h...
