This is Arnova 7G2, not Archos 70.

okay, so it does have 3g, but does this mean i can use this as a phone?

No. It means you can use the internet outside your house or an area without WiFi.

That's the archos 70 lower specifications. The arnova 2g is £150 in carphone wh

According to Arnova the 7 G2 doesn't have 3G - the 7c does but is this not just a 7?

No 3g on the G2. I have one sitting in front of me.

Good points. Quick, pretty well built, good battery life.
Bad points. No andriod market (yet), screen a little grainy when using lower backlight settings.

ignore

Yes. (But ignored as you asked as it's out of stock.)

So is this any better than the Archos 70? Worth another £30 over the Carphone Warehouse price?

Personally, for what I want the Archos 70 is spot on.

I can think of other things I can spend the extra £30 on instead of having the RAM

If I wanted a quick processor and high RAM'd item....I would use my Laptop

The link takes me to the Arnova G2, it doesn't call it a G2 in the title but it does in the description and the picture is of a G2, so I think the link is correct.

Hi guys. i will do research, just lookin for someone who knows, if he can use this offshore!!

As far as I know all devices on a platform have to be intrinsically safe and I doubt any off the shelf device would be classed as safe, no doubt there will be specially designed tablet PC's - but they'll cost a fortune.

It might be worth calling up the company and ask the question directly.

OOS now.

I guess it is so that he can contact the family onshore without waiting in line for the PC / Telephone. He needs to know if the rig has installed a wireless WIFI setup, if they have and they are happy to let people use the bandwidth and give the wireless key (if used) then he can use it, but if that is the case he may as well use a laptop. But dependent available bandwidth a lot of rigs will restrict to allow the day-to-day business priority.

As to the use of 3G most North Sea rigs are out of range of a mobile signal and those that are you could use the 3g which is fine if you have the data (three One Plan) else cost will be high, especially if he is from the UK and picking up a Norwegian 3G signal very expensive hundreds of pounds within hours.

As to intrinsically safe equipment (EX rated) this is only applicable if he was to wandering around outside of the accommodation, and any other classed as safe area.

Hope this is of help.

Android Market won't take long, I bought an Arnova 10 G2 without the market, the community support soon sorted that out

Edited to say there is even talk of Ice Cream Sandwich support in the offing (for the 10 G2 at least). I have to put that in context and say that it is JUST a rumour. But if a 10G2 is going to get it, you can be pretty sure a 7 G2 will get it too.
