If it's a rip off dont buy it,simple really,its called having a choice. If you purchase a 605 without doing any research first then more fool you,I dont buy anything without reading up on it first so I don't get any nasty suprises. I have not bought the plug-ins. But I still have the right as a con...

The whole principle behind the GNU/Linux environment is FREEdom, there are costs, but only when you are writing custom software. Since the decoders are software already written, they thustly classify under the FREEdom part (as in free to use for almost any purpose, not just free of cost). Considerin...

Charbax: Mobile phone platforms are completely different from the archos 605 platform. The archos 605 platform is proven to be a full linux environment, wheras phones are proprietary platforms, and there is no industry-wide standard platform for all cellphones. Considering there are currently codecs...

I absolutely love my archos 605, however there are some things I would like to see improved. 1) removable battery, why are they still not removable? I've even seen shots of the inside, it looks like they need to be factory replaced :/ 2) free versions of codecs. Yes, I understand some codecs are pro...

the video plays fine on my computer, if it's rated to play divx why should it fail to play in the first place? (divx and xvid go hand in hand).

Also, despite the (800x400?) resolution, I recall archos stating they scale video?

When trying to play a specific XViD video, it only plays the first 3 seconds or so of it when I play it on my archos. However, when I read from the archos the same file, on my computer, it plays the full length. Additionally, when I try to play another XViD series, it reports video too large (i imag...

im sorry guys.....340 for the 80 is really unfair. you got robbed. There is a "tax" on things like mp3 players to compensate artists for piracy. Thus prices in canada will always be higher. That being said, it decreases the chance someone like the riaa can sue you. the riaa has no jurisdi...

Even if we dont crack the encrypted mechanism for plugins, I would gladly help in developing better control over the OS itself, things such as terminal tools, and actually being able to execute other linux-based applications. This could effectively turn into a pocket-pc, with a lot of storage! (and ...

I have not quite read everything, but is there any way at this time to get a terminal program in the 605 environment?

Does anyone know if the virtual keyboard is isolated to the browser, does it come installed after the browser, or is it system-wide?
