Hi all,

I am planning to buy the archos 101 newly introduced in UAE.
I want to buy it just to use Skype on Archos to call up my parents in my home country.

I visited the retail stores but they never confirm if skype works on the archos 101 or not?

Someone having used it kindly help me in making this purchasing decision.

1. Can i install skype on arhcos 101
2. Can i upgrade to android latest version on archos 101

I'm not sure if you're talking about the 101 or the G9 101 ; those are 2 different models.

But I can confirm that Skype voice and chat work with the G9 101. The video usage is still a problem and to be correct: Skype is NOT officially supported on the Archos G9 tablets.
Also Google Talk video usage is a problem. Hopefully this will be solved in ICS.

"Skype is NOT officially supported on the Archos G9 tablets."
However, the G9 device FAQ does clearly mention Skype as an example of video chat software. So what makes you say that it is not supported?

I see more questions with problems at this point. I would wait if you can't confirm it will work (flawless) before getting

I've tried to get to work a couple of times on my 80g9 classic with no luck, yet to try on 1.5MHz turbo
