Re: Bought my wife an iPad - here are my thoughts

Thank you for that review. If i were rich, I would get the Ipad but since I'm poor with no credit card, it's really not in my future. I didn't know Itunes needed a credit card for their free apps. It probably will be Archos for me. Yes, I've never liked the fact that Apple wants you to be part of t...

Re: TENTATIVE Gen 9 info

Interesting. That is the first I have seen with a date associated. I am curious if they plan on still keeping the Gen 8 going as a mid-tier while the 9 can be the top tier. Price point would be an obvious difference. Also curious of the RAM. My feelings on the current device is that RAM is a far bi...

Re: Bought my wife an iPad - here are my thoughts

I've also noticed the superior videos. I think Android will catch up, but right now Ipad has such a lead and sites are tailored just for the Ipad. Only wish the 101 was as good so i could have saved $300 :( If video worked as well on Android as it does on the ipad, we wouldn't need flash. It's shoc...

Re: How about a list of (reviewed!) cheap android tablets?

My suggestion is to spend as much as you can on a good tablet. These "cheap" tablets are a huge source of frustration to many because although the tablet appears to do a lot of things (ebook reading, web surfing, games, etc.) it does nothing well as the CPU, memory (ram) and even the OS is often bel...

Re: Bought my wife an iPad - here are my thoughts

I didn't see the multitasking issue that you saw. I found when i went from one app to another the state was the same. Having owned the Archos 101 for more than two months I finally gave up on it and waited for the Ipad 2. The only thing I wish the Ipad did have was the micro sd card slot. The other...

Bought my wife an iPad - here are my thoughts

I bit the bullet today and bought an iPad for my wife - for the price, the iPad 2 didn't offer much more to wait for. I've been setting it up and playing with it for most of the day and while I have been "awed" a few times, my overall experience hasn't been conclusive yet. Here are my thoughts after...

Re: Flash 10.2 - Works on Gen 8

Try Comedy Central and The Colbert Report. Also crashed the Browser at CNN. Really, Flash sucks on Archos Android and is not ready even for geeks let alone the masses. I tried to watch and SNL clip: voice moved while video stalled. Allen Comedy Central worked flawlessly for me - probably the smooth...

Re: Let the jealous begin! Xoom getting flash 10.2 anytime n

Source code for Honeycomb and updated CDD should be out also any time now. Can't wait to hear what Archos engineers will say as soon as they can analyse Honeycomb's source code and let us know how soon we could expect an official 3.0 Honeycomb firmware update for our Gen8 tablets, with Flash 10.2 a...

Let the jealous begin! Xoom getting flash 10.2 anytime now..

Motorola will be pushing out an update for the Xoom in preparation of the new flash 10.2. I can't wait to see how it performs and hopefully it will set the benchmark high for other hardware developers to work at.

Re: is 256mb enough

Considering that at BEST you have about 140mb free (this is with the URUKDROID firmware - with stock you will have less than 100MB free at best), and running a few tabs on your browser could get it up to using 60-80mb before it crashes, 256 total ram is not enough for a tablet. Put it this way, run ...

SlideMe and GetJar * both offer downloadable APK's and from what I've seen and read they are both reputable legitamate sites. *Because GetJar offers downloads for many different platforms, set your phone type (Top right corner of the webpage) as a "Motorola A955 Droid II" and it should filter the a...

App Stores that allow APK file downloads?

I'm looking for an App Store or website that allows for APK downloads and not just a link to the Android Market. Since MANY apps still don't appear for me in the Market and installing to my phone, backing the file up and transferring isn't always convenient, I'm hoping to find a place that simply al...
