The biggest problem with the A28 seems to be its tiny 128 Mb RAM.
Do you have more or less free memory after the firmware update to 2.3.20 ?

As a reference point, on my A28, if I go to system monitor and kill everything (except system monitor) the memory reaches a mighty 43 MB free.

I would be grateful for comments.

I have the most updated one and it has 44 mb free however arc tools app doesn't work for it so I would stick with that one if arc tools does work.

I answered my own question.. I let the machine update to 2.3.26. If there is any difference in free memory, I cannot see it.
I do have many, many more breaks when playing some audio streams over the net (all streams from the BBC). I cannot prove it is definitely worse than before the update, but that is my impression.

Other things continue to be broken. If something like the youtube application that is installed by default does not work, it should not be installed by default.
Objectively, you have to say it is bizarre to ship a device with installed, non-removable applications that do not function.
