Re: Archos 43 Touch Screen Experience

I see the poll feature still isn't working. My touch screen has a bubble in it. I've been using a stylus for years now because I had a Dell Axim X30 before the A43. I noticed right away that using your finger was down right impossible. People that are using your nail should do so carefully. When I w...

Re: Archos 43it Speech Recognition?

My voicesearch works but I have to initiate it twice. The first time I always get an error that says "audio problem" and a big exclaimation sign underneath that followed by two buttons "Speak again" and "cancel". I press speak again and it works. This has been the case since I bought my 43 in Januar...

Re: Firmware 2.4.19 released - report bugs here

Update since I updated to 2.4.19: It looked like the screen rotation improved immediately after upgrading but after approx 10 minutes it actually got worse. So, sfter being totally frustrated with the screen rotation and home screen icons taking forever to reappear I decided to do a factory reinstal...

Re: Firmware 2.4.19 released - report bugs here

Well, I just updated to 2.4.19. The update went fine. After it was finished I turned my 43 off and powered it back on. After it was finished refreshing my media library and all the other good stuff I picked it up and tilted it. Blank screen and no icons. Approx 15 seconds later my icons appeared. I ...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

What "homescreen issue" which GeoD refers to, specifically? You mean the 10 secs for icons to appear? That's a "feature" of the stock launcher - ask anybody who has used ADW.Launcher (properly). This is not true. I've only been experiencing this since FW 2.3.81. It happens when my home screen first...

Has anyone heard any word on an upcoming fix for the home screens? My 43 is working great since 2.3.81 except for the home screen icons take approx 10 seconds to appear.

brickabrack. But to see you elaborating on their insurance angle in lengthy marketese (cut and paste?) just could not be left uncommented on.

I believe the Folio case/keyboard is included. The docking station is extra $$$.

Re: Cisco Cius Tablet

I will have to look into the specs a bit more. I saw some pictures and they look a bit small. Maybe 7"?

How was the performance?

Harfainx. Did you see the Thinkpad Tablet video? That's the tablet Im looking at for my personal use. It comes with the Folio case/keyboard that also has an optical trackpoint. The screen supports finger touch, pen touch, and trackpoint navigation all at the same time. There's no setup/config needed...

Re: Lenovo (IBM) Thinkpad & Ideapad Tablets

WOW!! You guys are really ragging on this company. Did you guys happen to watch the video reviews? Their tablets are $499. That doesn't sound like a whole lot of money to me. Especially since they have a lot of bells and whistles. I'm interested in the Lenovo products because: 1. Im a big fan of IBM...

Re: Why did you get an ARCHOS Tablet (PDA) and not a Smartph

A lot of people ask me what is that? I tell them "It's my pocket computer". Now that is an excellent way to describe the 43IT to people. I've had trouble telling people what it is. I say PDA and some people look at me crossed eyed like they never heard of that term before. I also would say "Interne...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

I will agree to that. But, the consumer had to do the leg work to get the freebie. The company just put it out there and to let people stumble upon it. Bottom line...I got 40 free Office 2010 licenses and 5 Win7 CDs. http://www.smileyvault.com/albums/forum/smileyvault-hijacked.gif I guess we should ...
