Wow!. It perfectly fits Archos 70!. Its only drawback is the elastic band covers the charging port ; but it is manageable.

You can fold it to the back too.

Very fast shipment! Highly recommended!

Don't find from other sellers, this place offers you the cheapest of its kind!


This is exactly what I was looking for. However, they don't appear to sell this anymore. If you see a similar case to this somewhere else, please report.

I just got my A70 (8gb) last night, and it fits perfectly in a Vera Bradley Mini Hipster.

http://www.verabradley.com/product/Mini-Hipster/154799/defaultColor/Boysenberry/p/154799.uts

Doesn't offer much protection, but there is room for a few cables, SD cards, etc in addition to the device.

It's sold out quite quickly after I post about it here.

I can't find the same cheap price, only found this one which is double the price, but still of great value. I can't guarantee it is the same size as the other; but it looks same, except its beige-color lining inside the cover (the other one is black velvet).

Hi,
for my A70, I bought a generic 7' neopren case and it's ok.
Be carreful, it will not protect your screen if you hit the case, but for me it was what I needed.

So my official Archos case FINALLY arrived from Amazon, and it truly is a thing of beauty. It's the slipcase originally designed for the Archos 7 Home Tablet, and it fits the 70 like a glove:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003SE6I7O/ref=oss_product

The case is made from a soft leather and is padded for extra protection, and the inside is lined with a soft material to keep the screen scratch-free. It is open at both ends, and there is a ribbon inside that holds the device in place when you slide it in from either end.

I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of this sleeve-style case. It's a really clever design and is exactly what I was looking for. I am thrilled with my purchase.


Do you think it would fit an A70 250? Slightly thicker than the A70 8.

Finding a case for my 101 has been a real challenge. I've settled on a Kroo neoprene case i picked up through Overstock for $12USD. Eventually I hope to find something else but for the price, this certainly did the job. The most difficult part of my search was finding a case that was an exact fit for a reasonable price. This case fits the 101 nice and snug. One of the nice parts of neoprene is that it's stretchy so even if you find a case where the dimensions are slightly small, it may still fit.

Two things to note:
1. because the case is really snug you can't fit much into the outside pocket
2. i have found it annoying that the kickstand tends to slip when i use it on my desk or a plane's tray table. the case acts as a great base preventing any slipping if you are typing or playing a game with the stand up.

This one fits like a glove.

Orent, while people will appreciate your honesty about a product, there is no reason to post all in caps.

I have that exact case, and I don't think it feels cheap at all. Actually many people ended up buying (and liking) that case because of the thorough review, and multiple pictures I posted for it.

You are always open to your opinion, but just simply posting in caps not to buy something isn't really going to make the best argument. Maybe elaborate a little bit as to what problems you had with it?

Awesome, I didn't even know they had one of these Cajl. Just ordered mine!

I've been looking around for a headrest adapter for my A101. My son watches movies in the van, but the screen doesn't turn, so he has to watch it at an angle and keep his head turned the whole time. This will make watching much easier.

I bought the Archos 101 case from NewMp3technology because of a video I say on Youtube of a lady (with tats). I also bought one of their usb cord. Please know this... The case is ok, but you do get what you pay for! The case is rather cheap and poorly made. I had to super glue different areas because the fake leather was separating and coming apart. It also had loose threads that I had to burn and glue to keep them from unraveling. The stylus slot is actually upside down if you hold the Archos 101 with the camera up, which isn't that big of an issue, just weird. After a few weeks it started to just look pretty crappy. I finally decided to pay more (much more) and bought the Pdair one. VERY NICE CASE!!!! I am very pleased. If you are like me you will want a nice case to go along with the Archos because it's a very cool and nice tablet. I the Pdair case directly from Pdair, not ebay or Amazon, on Sunday night and received it on Wednesday. I am blown away on how fast it got here. The case from NewMp3Tech took longer to get to me and they're in the USA. The Pdair case came from Hong Kong. I ordered a new screen protector on Amazon from Lexerd on May 10th and it's not even here yet. (Today's date is May 18) The Pdair case is real leather with vents holes for the speakers, plus they sent me a key chain with my order. As for the usb cord that I got from NewMp3Tech... it is very short. If you want to plug in to your computer or car lighter to charge the Archos you will have to be pretty close. I ended up buying a longer cord on Amazon that works just fine. In my opinion NewMp3Tech is a waste of money... Just an opinion.

Has anyone found a case that fits the A101 snug. I really dont want the leather case I would prefer the neoprene material any ideas. Archos dropped the ball as far as cases go.
