Looks like a good deal for the internet tablet. I've got the older archos 7 and 605 and they are great bits of kit. The tablet is supposed to be true android so you can install apps. I also believe that the gen6 dock works and i think there is a GPS receiver in there. Best to do your own research but looks a brilliant price (it's £300 on tesco direct!)

There's a thread on the archosfans site about it here

This is from Amazon (not easy to read I'm afraid!)

I see we are negative already, any chance of a comment to explain... is it cheaper somewhere else?
There are a lot of bad reviews for this which date back to a time before the software updates fixed some major problems. It got a bit of a bad rep as a result which is probably why the discount is so good now.

If you're a little bit techy this is pretty good. 5" is actually a good size for a tablet as it will fit in a coat pocket, unlike an iPad, but gives a reasonable browsing experience (well... beter than a phone).

The Amazon spec above is not 100% correct - the display resolution is 800x480 not 800x400
HI thanks for the note. I've read a few reviews now and it looks like the firmware has been improved a lot now. I'm just trying to justify buying one given I've already got a 7 and a 605!
I saw this in Currys Lyons farm, Worthing for £108.97 2 weeks ago.

Worth popping to nearest Currys if you are interested.
Really poor quality unit. I had the 500GB from Currys for £189.97 a few weeks back and I had to return it after two weeks.... it was really bad. :(
