4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD ANRDOID TABLET WHEN HACKED...., 19 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Archos 70b eReader (Personal Computers)
THIS CAN BE TURNED INTO A GREAT LITTLE ANDROID TABLET WHEN USING HACKED FIRMWARE. THERE ARE TONS OF GUIDES ONLINE HOW TO DO THIS
AS THE ARCHOS FIRMWARE IS OKAY BUT NOT FULLY OPEN LIKE ALL ANDROID TABLETS SHOULD BE. WITH THE HACK IT OPENS UP A TON OF FEATURES MAINLY
BEING THE FULL ANDROID APP STORE. JUST TYPE IN ARCHOS 70B FIRMWARE HACK ON GOOGLE OR YOUTUBE AND YOU CAN FIND MANY GUIDES. I DID MINE IN 10 MINS NO PROBLEMS
AND ITS RUNNING ANDROID 2.2 NOW FINE.

I FEEL IMRPESSED WITH THE UNIT ITSELF, THE TOUCH SCREEN DOESNT FEELS AS GOOD QUALITY AS AN IPAD SCREEN ETC BUT IT DOES THE JOB WELL FOR THE PRICE.
THE UNIT ITSELF FEELS SOLID, I HAVE MINE IN A PROTECTIVE CASE WHICH I BOUGHT OFF AMAZON ALSO.

MY MAIN REASON FOR PURCHASE WAS THE VIDEO PLAYBACK WHICH IS IMPRESSIVE. IT CAN PLAY 720P MKV BUT ITS A BIG SLUGGISH. STICK WITH XVID/DIVX FILES AND ITS CRACKING.

THE HIGHLIGHT OF THIS DEVICE IS THE SD CARD EXPANSION. TAKES UPTO A 32GB STICK WHICH IS IDEAL FOR MANY VIDEOS.

TRIED ANGRY BIRDS ON IT, IT PLAYS OK ONCE THE BACKGROUND SETTINGS HAVE BEEN TWEAKED BUT I DONT THINK IT WOULD PLAY THE LATEST 3D ANDROID GAMES. THROW ANYTHING OVER A YEAR OLD ON THIS AND IT WILL
PLAY FINE.

MY GRIPE IS THE DEVICE DOESNT CHARGE ON THE MICRO USB WHICH IS A SHAME, YOU HAVE TO USE THE AC CONNECTOR BUT I GUESS A WORKAROUND WILL COME OUT IN TIME.
