So back to the device, which, as we agreed, is in fact a media player and should be treated as such.
Archos' own description is very confusing so let me tell you what this player does.
1. It plays music files, of almost any format (MP3, Flac, Ogg Vorbis, WMA, AC). Audio quality is very good, in fact very close to Cowon which is a big compliment in my books. Also the fact that you can listen to music in un-compressed format is a great advantage compared to MP3-only players.
2. It playes HD video viles - WMV, AVI, H.264, MKV or QuickTime video with 720p resolution. As screen is only 400x240 you'll have to connect a player to a TV or monitor to enjoy HD content. It won't play BBC iplayer files as there is no built-in DRM support.
You can connect it using USB (standard micro port), or WiFi/Bluetooth.
File transfer is just drag-and-drop which is great.
Built-in browser is OK and due to a very powerful processor Internet works quite fast (if you'd want to use it on a tiny screen).
5. Games/apps etc.
I am not a big fan of phone games, or other apps for that matter, but for those who can't live without Angry Brirds, rejoyce, once you sort out the aformentioned connection to Android Marketplace you can have them all. Well Flash is definitely worth getting (since it's free anyway). Skype is good too but I have it on pc, notebook and phone - how many more skypes does one man needs?
6. Storage capacity
8GB is a huge let down, 16 is a real minimum these days (I think). One star off for low storage.
Archos 32 is a very decent media player. In fact, a very good media player. There are even some extra options for you to explore, but I am not commenting much on "tablet" side of this player as I have no need to use them (for now) .
it is a little bit hard to see in daylight but just turn around and the sun isn't on the screen any more.
the batery life isn't very good (when i first got it i used it nonstop and in about 5 hours it just said 'POWER TURNING OFF'.
overall a great little pocket gamer!!
As you would expect given the price of the device, there are a few downsides:
1. The 3.2 inch screen is small, which can cause problems while viewing some web sites
2. The touch screen isn't as responsive as the more expensive iPod Touch
3. There are no external speakers, so you've got use headphones to listen to anything
4. The battery life isn't as long as it could be (although it's not bad)
However if you can live with these downsides, I can recommend the Archos.
Archos is cheap by itself, and this is cheaper on amazon. I also own the Archos 70 Internet Tablet, I bought this because I really need and android's app to have always with me (it's a celiac desease list of food I can eat), so I decided to buy this smaller one for wider portability.
Basically the feature are the same of the bigger brother and I use it lot with BT headphone when I get to the bus for going to office and back
With a little hack you get directly to the google market (it has non direct support, as it lack of phone, GPS,..), I haven't tried the Amazon Anroid Market as I'm from Europe
It come with 8Gb flash memory with no expansion slot, but not a big problem for me when I'm at home because it can easily see my network share an play all the music, picture, and also video without problem.
When I'm out I can tether with my phone for getting on the internet. It can also connect to a BT GPS (that I export from my phone too), so what it lacks by itself can be connected.
Can be connected to TV, but I prefer use to use this as a remote for the Archos 70 as can connect in HDMI (this connect with a composit).
The only limit the disappoint me a little is the room for apps that is 256Mb, a little small if you want to test/use lot of apps. You can root it for solving this (afaik).
If you're looking a super PMP (it reads everithing! Flac, ogg, and other esotic formats are no pain with this device) but very portable with the plus of real android (2.2) capabilty this is definitly a deal.
A must have at this price.
All in all a serious rival to the Apple iPod Touch 8Gb.
