Old model, newer tablets from Archos coming out now with better spec . . .

the newer tablets are going to be restricted from android marketplace from what i have read.

archos apps only. about 2000 so far they reckon.

Bought one of these 3 weeks ago from QVC when it was a TSV (came with pouch, mains charger, car charger, dvr snap-on) for £299.

It's excellent as a video player, which is what we bought it for. There's room for hundreds of mp4 films on there to keep my son happy. (You get the mp4 HD playback codec 'unlocked' when you register it on the Archos website)

Note that you'll finding yourself bashing the screen like an old Sinclair ZX80!

I bought an iPad at the week-end and the difference between the two is startling. As a video player, it's good.

It's on Android 1.6 with the latest BIOS update. There's rumours of further updates, but Archos are notorious for dropping updates when newer models come out, so we'll have to see.

As for the better spec, I'm not sure what's better in the 'new' models. I didn't think any offered a 500GB hard drive.

You can easily get around this by sideloading and adding the Android Market.apk !

The iPad is superb. We are using that 5 or 6 hours a day. The Ocado app is a joy to use on the iPad. The Archos is a good video player, it has 500GB storage, but I wouldn't use it for anything else. The screen is not touch sensitive enough, the controls too quirky. We'll use it a couple of times a month when on long car/train/plane journeys.

Brilliant

can you plug a internet dongle (straight from the hihg street from o2 or orange) into one of these. If so are there any complications? Does it work well on the web?
