    I don't think this is gonna work because its another laptop/netbook in a different shape, it won't get things done easier, on the contrary.
    Site doesn't say antying about GPS or multitouch as far as I can see, and resistive touchscreens just suck imho.

    Pretty sexy, it's a little on the small side and with a resistive touch screen I don't know how well it will work. Decent processor and pretty good memory. And hey a camera!

    I like how it's not running a mobile OS. The camera is a plus so is the memory.

    yes I agree on that. I think running a OS that isn't optimised for mobile use on a mobile device is silly. Its going to be like windows mobile (which is the worst OS I have ever used and seen) tiny icons with crap performance.

    THE GOOD: Thin design; solid construction; plenty of storage space.

    THE BAD: Terribly slow CPU; no way to easily rotate orientation; frustrating touch controls.

    THE BOTTOM LINE: The Archos 9 PC Tablet certainly looks the part of a full-OS iPad competitor, but hardware frustrations make it a tough sell.

    As I've said before. Putting an OS that was not specifically designed for the platform, is an unbelievably terrible idea.
