Yes, Apple deserves credit for basically inventing tablets as we know it. I remember when the ipad was announced, people laughed at the idea and now there are tens of millions of people who own one - in under two years!

Re: Archos 70 won't charge and won't turn on

For urgent support, I would suggest just calling Archos. They have been top-notch whenever I've called them by phone.

Re: urukdroid 0.7 freezing

There's definitely a problem with freezing/force closes/application errors with Urukdroid 0.7. I was having apps crash at least once an hour, then youtube would stop playing video's at random, then flash would simply not work. I was also having issues with audio not working after playing mp3's for a...

Re: So... I Was Told That Gen 8 Units Will Not Get Honeycom

With the limitation in RAM that Gen8 devices have, I can't imagine even attempting to run Honeycomb... the experience would be utterly frustrating.

Acer A500 tablet

Wow... let the new tabs come!

http://androidandme.com/2011/04/tablet/ ... price-tag/

If the EEE Pad Transformer turns out to be more than US$399, I'll certainly be interested in the A500.

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

xfirex wrote:$700, but the UK price is always higher than US, so maybe around $600-625?

The dock was supposed to be about $100, "should" put the tablet around $500-525.
At $500, I'll pass on this. If it ever pops up for $399 in North America again, I'm all over it! =D>

Re: I used a Xoom and a 101

It is like comparing Apples to different Apples, but they are really different apples, in fact it's more like comparing a ripe apple to one that was certainly tasty but not just there yet. Hardware and the OS are now truly tablet optimized now, which is what i hope we will see in the Gen 9 Archos t...

I hope it is lower than that... If they end up being less than $399, I might have to get two :) I'm quite surprised to hear that the Asus products are such high quality. I honestly considered them a second-tier manufacturer, but I've never owned their products. I'm glad to hear they make good produ...

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

It's nice, but the new rumor is $799. I guess it can be purchased with or without the dock, the $799 is for both. I can't imagine an Eee product selling for that much. Asus netbooks with windows sell for under $300 and a tablet should be no more than $400 without the keyboard. Best buy also listed ...

Sync will often not work if your APP STORAGE space is getting low. Do you have a low-space indicator in your notification bar?

And my browser on my 101 rarely crashes so more likely points to how you set up or upgrade yours. I'm happy with mine thanks to this forum. I wouldn't have bought this tablet if this forum didn't exist. Unfortunately, I've tried too many "fresh starts" (clean android OS) to believe that it's my set...

Re: For those who feel like they were lied to

Regardless of whether Archos lied to us or not, the Gen8s are underpowered to handle complex web browser pages with or without Flash. By underpowered I mean transitions which my personal computers handle rapidly and with ease crash the browsers. For example, if I scroll down the page while the page...

Re: For those who feel like they were lied to

With all due respect, the only "official" way of getting flash on our device is through Appslib and if you notice, that version is NOT put out by Adobe - it's been put up illegally under the company "Tom Flash". I had spoken to Archos about getting an official version of flash for my A70 and they sa...
