I am thinking about getting the archos one coming out in January. I have heard that the video sites have been a problem. Is this generally true? Is it better to get a 7" or 10" gingerbread tablet than a 7" honeycomb?

Does anyone know of a decent tablet that has the actual market and a camera, preferably one on the front with flash and a decent size hard drive?

Re: honeycomb 3.2 problems for 7" tablets

Archos has a huge screen problem, as its hard to use their touch screens. The reviews arnt that good for Archoes products.

I apologize for the double post but it would not let me edit the post at that moment, so that is why I started a second post. I try not to do so.

As for the htc flyer;it is almost $500. I could get an ipad for a little more. The archos is $200 as is the kindle fire. I am looking for something in that range, if such a thing exists. Thanks.

I have owned an Archos 70 It, Archos, 80Gen 9 Turbo 1.2Ghz, Blackberry Playbook, and an Acer a100. Out of all those tablets, for the price I love and can't get over my Acer a100! Second i would go for the Archos 80 Gen9, the screen is also amazing you wont regret it, they have really steped up there act on the screen on thos new tablets, even the archos 70 i still play around with.The Playbook was nice, it was fast and smooth, but I can't get away from my love for android. And the Acer a100 gives out great performance and it works great along side with my HTC evo 3d! I mostly use the Acer a100 as my 1st choice tablet as is is very very smooth with the new.honeycomb upgrade!

P.S I have overclocked my HTC to 1.8GHz stable and get great battery life out of it and hope to do the same to my Acer...but I have the felling like I won't with the Acer as it doesn't have scene 3.0 slowing it down.

Also when you chose the tablet you are going to buy, let us know.


Have a good one!

I am waiting to see the review for the 70b. Does anyone know if the archos 70b has adobe flash? I read that it has it's own media players in the pcworld article. So, that could signify that they are not using flash. I don't know. The two main things I am looking for is the google marketplace and flash. I may save up for the acer if that is the case. Otherwise, I will see what the market dictates.

Any device running Android 2.2 or higher can run flash. There is an app in the marketplace free of charge for Adobe flash.

Isn't Adobe not going to support mobile flash on any upcoming software and smartphones passed 11.1 flash. I thought I read that somewhere.

Please correct me if I'm wrong....

Correct - not going to support, doesn't mean it won't work though.

They will continue to release security updates.

Chances are, Adobe flash will work on most devices.
