Re: Nokia kills Symbian, will eventually make Android device

Yes, this is so disappointing as a user. I can't even imagine being one of their developers and receiving this news. Nokia showed much promise with Maemo/Meego, and just went nowhere with it. But to jump to Win7Pho? Crazy.

Re: HP now has WebOS tablet - how differnet from Android?

I like the WebOS interface (well I haven't seen a touchpad, I'm talking Palm Pre). I am disappointed with the hardware, it's a clone of the iPad, except, wow what an innovation, they added a camera!

Re: New to Archos 5 16g, help please

No, don't format it. That means Windows would try to convert it to FAT32, deleting everything. Which mode did you use to get this far? MSC or MTP? But this is good news, it confirms that your USB port is working. The best thing to try at this point is sweetypie's advice, install the Ext2 driver on y...

Re: New to Archos 5 16g, help please

Even if you can't connect it to your PC, and don't install the Market, this is not required in order to enjoy your A5IT. The AppsLib lets you browse through Archos approved apps and try those out. It's no Android Market but there's plenty to try. And without upgrades, the A5IT is a great video and m...

Re: Problem with Archos 101

Are you able to return your A101? It sounds like you got a bad item. It should boot, not go into a reboot cycle. Return it or exchange it for another one. When the A101 works, it is a nice machine.

Re: Archos 101 for taking notes at school

Truthfully, the Ipad and the current crop of Android tablets aren't really suitable for note taking since they lack an active digitizer with special pen for writing. At present, an active digitizer is the only reliable technology that allows you to take real time notes with consistent accuracy. Tha...

Re: skype

No. Skype is not supporting Android at this time. They may have something later this year. (which means it probably won't support Android 1.6)

I am talking about the U.S. here. And more accurately, Skype has an agreement with Verizon in the U.S. so only Verizon Android devices get skype. :cry:

Re: 32gb or 500gb A5 IT

The other comment I am going to make is that the people who have had fail-to-start problems on this forum are the people who bought the hard disc model. A spinning hard disc is more likely to be damaged in a portable device. So, if you are careful with your electronics, the 500 GB may work fine. I t...

Re: Can you use your ipod on Gen8's?

Compatible how? I haven't tried it, but I expect that if you connect your ipod to the USB port on the Gen 8, you could play music from the ipod using the Archos. The compatibility listed on the box is to tell you what desktop computers can connect to the Archos. Windows isn't really required, just u...

Re: Archos 48, replacing Archos 5?

Now the Archos store shows both models. But the Archos 48 is in stock, and the Archos 5 is not. The (greyed out) price for the A5 500 GB is $449, while the (available, in stock) price for the A48 500 GB is $299. That's a big difference.

Re: Archos 48 on Sale!?

I'll admit, that's pretty funny. It's accurate though, the A5Android really has a 4.8" screen. And comes in a 500 GB model. Some photos on the page show "Archos 48", others show "Archos 5". I put it in my Cart, I'm sure they'd take your money if you followed through with it. So you put in random pro...

I have also returned my A101 (unfortunately). Mine had the touch not working problem, in the middle of the screen. After returning it, I now have read the ribbon cable problem pressing on the screen was probably causing it. In my case, I bought it from Amazon, and Amazon took it back, with full refu...

Re: My touch screen is not as sensitive in the center.

I had the same problem, and ended up sending back my A101. I did do the recalibration in the Settings menu, no improvement. Then I did the recalibration in the boot menu (power on / volume button menu), it was a little better, but still really annoying to use, dead to touch in the center. I called A...

Re: Copying Contacts

The way to do this automatically is to get your contacts into gmail, when you tie your device to your gmail account, it synchronizes them. I don't have an Iphone, but I copied all my contacts to a file, and gmail imported them. But -- I think this requires that you install the google Market first, a...

I did the same thing too. The battery number kept decreasing. After it reached zero, I realized the power plug goes on the bottom hole, not the earphone hole near the on button.
