    What do the great people of iPodtouchfans think of the soon to be released Archos 101? I am without an iDevice (I threw mine at a wall because the sound didn't work

    So What do you think? In case you live in a cave/don't read Engadget, This is the Archos website, and this is device I'm referring to.

    Thank you, and buhbye now.

    Anybody? Nobody? Sigh. Its not ugly, btw. Its a very pretty device, But, like you said, you are bias. Devices made by companies other than Apple can be good looking too.

    Pretty device, but I do not want it.

    Why? It doesn't have the standard Android buttons as physical buttons.

    However, their new 32 Internet Tablet looks very nice.

    Pretty device, but... I don't think it'll be worth my time. At least the Galaxy Tab from Samsung is showing some efforts in improving the UI for tablet use. The Archos just seems too... stock for me, and I'm just afraid it'll just come with a bare bone version of Android that has nothing on it and is totally unoptimized. Got burned by the Archos 5 pretty good, and I'm not sure if I should believe in Archos to improve their Android devices...

    Yea, the Archos 5 was sh*t from what I've heard. I've got an Archos 7, and its a great device minus the resistive touchscreen. I've got money set aside for this one, So as soon as they're released I'll do a review and post a link somewhere around here. Then we can judge.

    Well, Google just came out and admitted it themselves that Android isn't ready for tablets yet. So I think there is more ground for doubts now...

    Android sucks even more on tablets.
