Re: Owner Reviews - A101

Thumbs up for Amazon.com. I received an email today, they received my returned unit (see my review from 07 January) and say they are crediting me the full amount (after a while, the processing takes time). But there are still none in stock at Amazon to replace mine. If it takes a while, the new Hone...

Re: Is the Archos 101 a good choice for "portable" tablet?

The A101 isn't something you will want to carry around without some sort of case. It is too big for a pocket. I know of no differences between the 70 & 101 except screen size. As for portability, I guess that would depend on your definition of portable. The 101 doesn't have GPS and 3G. It is WiFi o...

Re: Owner Reviews - A101

A101 16 GB USA Amazon.com Based on all the good reviews here (and grains of salt on the bad reviews) I bought my A101 from Amazon. I had a very bad unboxing experience. I still believe the hardware is a bargain. I think Archos is having production quality problems, my screen has so many dead spots i...

Re: Solved Touch screen and dead spots on screen

I've had the dreaded dead spots on the left side of my 101 since I first got it. Nothing seemed to be able to fix it. I tried screen calibration, zeam launcher, launcher pro, none of them fixed the problem. When 2.071 update came out, I did the format recovery method and saw an option to "force rec...

One is deeper than the other :D

But seriously folks . . . the message that comes up when you select deep sleep is that some functions (like alarm) will NOT work in deep sleep. So more functions are shut off in deep sleep, using less power.

Re: How to delete a mailaccount

Go into the email app. The first screen shows you a list of the accounts that you have added to your device. Do a long-press on the account you want to delete. (tap with your finger and hold it there until a new pop-up window opens) The pop-up window will say "open", "settings", "remove".

Re: US availability, post links to stores that have it in st

Amazon must be getting in a few at at time, and selling them out quickly. I'm waiting with anticipation today. Amazon says they shipped my 101, and UPS agrees that it is in transit.

This is good news. Tigerdirect still has them in stock. Maybe Archos is rolling out more 10 1 production now. I was tempted to cancel my Amazon order, which has been sitting with no update for a week. But I checked first, and my 10 1 shipped from Amazon today. (even though a search on Amazon says th...

Re: whats the deal with skype?

Actually Fring didn't drop anything, Skype stopped them from accessing their network... Skype also recently stopped Nimbuzz from giving users access to Skype services. That is a shame. Skype access was one of several reasons for buying the A5A. I guess I'm going to have to go back to my Nokia N800....

Re: flash??

you need to download the youtube app for android to your a5a. flash won't work inside the browser. but if the youtube app is installed, when you click on the video, the a5a will offer to open the youtube app, and then it will play.

Re: whats the deal with skype?

Skype doesn't support Android 1.6. (Skype will work with Android 2.2 though, so if you have a Generation 8 Archos, then you can use it. Since this is the A5Android forum, I assume you have an A5A.) Try Fring, you have to install it, and log into Fring, but then it can use your skype account, after y...

The Market on my A5A stopped being able to download updated apps. I heard from my colleague that there was a new Market. So I deleted it and was going to start from scratch. But first, when did AppsLib become version 2? I thought I'd been paying attention, I guess not. There do seem to be more apps ...

My 10 1 that I ordered Monday has the status on Amazon "Not Shipped Yet". And they are not in stock now. I sent a message to Amazon, no answer of what this means for my 10 1 that was in stock when I clicked "buy". :? I'm hoping your post is still accurate 101luva. Maybe it will ship on January 1.

Re: google sky map

To expand on the answer, you can install google sky map, and it will run, and the stars will be displayed. But because the A5A does not have a compass, it doesn't know where you are pointing with the screen, therefore, you get random stars displayed.
