Charby rules!

What is the free device space after 2.2? Average total increase from 2.1 to 2.2 for Droid, Galaxy and Incredible was 50 mb.

Did Archos remap storage?

Why did you keep it secret? Archos threaten you?

You could have at least gave us a hint, you know ;)

Video coming up..
Awesome!

- Is it for both 101IT and 70IT ?
- Do you have any info you can share on the OTA update release date ?
- Does it "feel" snappier ?

I'm sure I'll have over questions later :D

Hmmmmm. This could mean there is a small chance that the reason the devices have not shipped is Archos has been stealth testing 2.2.....

Then the stickers on the device already shipped in Europe would make sense (leaked product).

I guess it all depends on how stable the 2.2 that Charby has really is.

Well, like in Dumb and Dumber, there IS a chance :)

Still, I would rather have a mid-buggy 2.2, than a rock solid 2.1. The performance and Flash is worth it. Be nice if Archos gave us the option, rather than wait a month or more.

While Mr Google is "processing" the HD video file, you can hit refresh button at http://archosfans.com/2010/10/28/androi ... 8-tablets/ until it goes live.

I think they get about a million videos uploaded to them all the time, and they probably have a million servers encoding new videos non stop. Perhaps there is some carnival or something like that going on somewhere at the moment using up lots of their processing power..

You're right... It usually takes an hour at the most guys!

Hey Charbax, just wondering... do you have any idea when we'll get our 101s in America?

I love charbax videos, seeing anybody that enthusiastic about anything always brings a smile to my face.

And with Charby, I don't even mind the french accent, usually that accent annoys the hell out of me (don't take it personally, it's not an anti-french thing, the US southern accent is annoying to me as well, don't know why), but with charbax's enthusiasm, it just works and is endlessly amusing.

Now that 2.2 is definitely imminent, this thing is going to haunt my dreams even more....dammit
