Beginning Android 3

Creator: Mark Murphy | Computers - 2011-04-29

NOTE: Because Google Maps is not part of the Android open source project, some devices lack Google Maps due to licensing issues. For example, at the time of this writing, the Archos 5 Android tablet does not have Google Maps.

    Works Great- Had issue connecting to WPA-2 Router...

    Got it for a remarkably low $230.99 delivered here on Amazon, plus it arrived in 2 days! After I unboxed it and charged it up, I stepped through the Archos Wizard setup which includes wifi settings. It showed "connected" to my WPA-2 router but it would not communicate. Archos tech support- less than a minute on hold- was very helpful in explaining that the 101 G9 sometimes has issues with WPA security. After resetting my security to the less secure WEP standard, it hooked right up.I downloaded the February 2012 Archos Android 3.2.1 update and it loaded without any problem; After that it was smooth sailing all the way! I find it to be a fast tablet of decent quality that does everything as advertised. Other reviews mentioned poor build quality, but I don't agree. Every fit & finish detail about it appears well executed.I've only owned it for a day, but based on the overall very positive experience I think it's a keeper.

    Excellent Tablet for the Price!

    Update to my previous review... I'm not sure if I have a defective model but just a few weeks after I did the review below I started having multiple problems. I have owned this tablet just over 2 months and every app I go into, I get a pop up after just 30 seconds or so telling me the app is not responding. It moves so slow that I have tried to pull something up, walked away for 5 minutes and when I came back it was still trying to pull it up. I tried ending all programs but it kept doing it so I did a factory re-start. When the tablet started up again (all my stuff was wiped off of it) it started in Safe Mode. While I was trying to figure out how to get it out of Safe Mode, it shut down on me. I plugged it into the charge and it charged for over 8 hours without the green light coming on. I unplugged it and it would not start up. I plugged it in again and waited another hour and the green light came on but it still wouldn't start up.

    0 1/5 HR - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Archos 502352 97 Titanium HD Multi-Touch Screen Android Tablet (Personal Computers) I thought a low/mid-end Android tablet for ~$250 would be enough for my needs.It had exactly what I needed on paper.4:3 aspect ratio.Light and thin.9.7" screen with 2048 X 1536 resolution.In reality this tablet is dirt slow, constantly loses connection to Wi-Fi and burns through battery faster than anything I've seen.It's too bad there are not more 4:3 ration Android tablets. Might be time to give in and just get an iOS tablet.While I'm not sure what my next tablet is, I am sure it will not be an Archos. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 3, 2013

I looked up reviews on this tablet and many said it was slow, no google play, and the appslib store has little apps. WELL, I disagree with all those except the last one!!!! This tablet is pretty FAST, faster then my ipod touch 4th gen. I mean its not lighting speed, but takes about 2 seconds to load a google search/ web page change. This tablet doesn't ship with Android market (google play) but you can get it on the tablet, look it up on youtube. a MUCH EASIER way to get the apps in google play is to search 1mobile apps on google, click on the one describing apps, and install that app store onto your tablet, you now have access to 99% of the apps in google play.

    Arnova 10B G3 = Disaster

    I bought this tablet a few days ago and it has turned into a piece of junk. First the 4GB of storage space is NOT 4gb. It is like 2GB. Once that is gone YOU CANNOT STORE APPS ON SD CARD. There is no root that enables transfer of apps to SD. Some manufacturers of ICS tablets allow transfer of apps to SD via their ICS OS but Archos does not. The unit started glitching out, slow and wouldnt respond to my touches. Battery gets hot to touch easily thru the cheap plastic back, speaker quality is like a tin can and the viewing angles are ghastly. I know this is the budget model of Archos, but they really cut corners on this thing. I paid $179.99 for it. In reality it is only worth like $100 if that. I can buy a better budget tablet with ICS at my local CVS at $100 better than this thing. What really made me mad was I did not buy it on Amazon where there are no issues to return this thing.

    Awesome alternative to an Ipod Touch.

    The following review is coming from the point of view of a power user/techie who's had a Nokia tablet and an Ipod, who's put Linux on everything in his house including the toaster, who's built several of his own computers, and who generally likes to tinker with and hack anything that he can get his hands on.If this sounds like you and you have any reservations about buying this tablet, forget them. I think you will like the Archos 43. I skipped the 7" tablets because they're too big to fit in my pocket. I wanted something ultra-portable, and as of now, this seems to be one of the few remaining small tablets around. It is a little old now, but if you're interested in a better Ipod Touch at a fraction of the price, or a perfected successor to the Nokia Internet Tablets of a few years ago, this certainly fits the bill.Let me start with the negative. I wish this thing had the Ipod's touch screen.

    At least there's no smartphone contract!

    I do not use my cell phone very often. On my pay-as-you-go terms, I'm basically paying $8 per month. I use on average 2 texts per day. Maybe use 1-2 minutes talking on the phone per week. Why I would sign up for a smart phone plan and start paying like $50 per month is beyond me. I ain't that important or popular yet.But for someone addicted to the internet, and in need of quick drug references in the clinic and checking up on emails, this is perfect for me. A single payment of $170ish versus 24+ months of cell phone bills giving me minutes I don't need, texts I won't use and stingy data plans at obscene rates made this the logical choice for my needs.

    GREAT DEVICE(for the price)

    In short, this is one of the best android tablets out there. It is small enough to still fit in your pocket, yet large enough to have one of the best screens ive seen in a while. The biggest complaint that ive heard is the screen, and all you have to do is install an app called launcherpro, and the device becomes 100% more responsive. This is actually what ive seen from many android devices and launcherpro makes everything so much more smooth. The stock keyboard is also a little iffy, but a quick install of either better keyboard or slideIT makes this the perfect device. Oh also as been mentioned before it does not come with the android market on it stock, but a quick google of "arctools" and then your all set up and ready to go.You can even set up google voice to send SMS and make calls right from your archos! So overall this has been a fantastic purchase.EDIT: I am retracting my 5 stars down to three, while still follow those steps to increase functionality,... 3/5 Christopher - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Archos 43 4.3-Inch 8 GB Internet Tablet (Electronics) In short, this is one of the best android tablets out there. It is small enough to still fit in your pocket, yet large enough to have one of the best screens ive seen in a while.

    No OTAs, no updates, no customer support

    Customer Video Review Length:: 9:58 MinsUpdate 2/12/2014Changing my rating to 1 star because Archos has ZERO customer support, they do not reply to customer's emails or tech help requests, and also they are not providing OTAs (firmware upgrades) to correct problems and update Android OS. My recommendation is to consider the "HANNSPREE 13.3-INCH QUAD CORE TABLET PC T7 SERIES WITH 1280X800 10 POINTS TOUCH 16GB MEMORY AND ANDROID JELLY BEAN" tablet (see my posted video review). I will still keep this video review on this product.Original 2013 Review:This is the 1st tablet I have purchased. I have seen many others but waited 2 years for a 13"+ screen. As an electrical engineer, I am very critical in my reviews to products pertaining to quality and specifications. So here are my findings:- The screen is crystal clear and colors are outstanding. I love reading pdf, doc, epubs, movies, etc.. on this tablet because of the size- Wifi works perfectly... 1/5 A. Whitney (Amarillo TX) - See all my reviews, May 14, 2013

    Could be great, but has odd problems

    Testing out 13.3 tablets by Archos (this one) and Kocaso (M1400).The strangest "problem" with this tablet is that it does not include Bluetooth capability (unlike the Kocaso). That is a very strange omission by Archos that doesn't seem to make any sense. This unit and the Kocaso look almost exactly alike (save for cosmetic details) and appear to have the same board (hardware specs are identical from what I have seen, USB and other ports are in exactly the same place on both units). I would imagine that the bluetooth connectivity isn't available in hardware, although it could be that Archos decided not to enable it in firmware.One other very strange problem - every time the unit is rebooted, it changes its WiFi's MAC address. Someone else noticed this and posted in one of the user forums, and I have confirmed my unit exhibits the same behavior. Obviously a *really* bad bug which makes it impossible to put the unit in a WiFi router's MAC access filter, or to... 2/5 Clovis (Kansas) - See all my reviews This review is from: Archos FamilyPad 2 8 GB Tablet - 13.3" - ARM Cortex A9 1.60 GHz - Black (Personal Computers) Testing out 13.3 tablets by Archos (this one) and Kocaso (M1400).The strangest "problem" with this tablet is that it does not include Bluetooth capability (unlike the Kocaso).

    Quick Stand: The FamilyPad 2 comes with its own stand so when you're not holding it to use apps, the web or multimedia, it can be used as a digital picture frame or even your family calendar (requires Google's cloud-based, multi-user calendar app)
    2-Megapixel Front and Rear Cameras: Both the front and rear cameras are 2-megapixels so you can capture high quality photos and videos. The front facing camera is capable of recording in 720p so you will be able to video chat with friends and family in high definition quality
    Mini HDMI: The mini HDMI port on the FamilyPad 2 allows you to output video to a HDTV (mini HDMI to HDMI cable sold separately). This is great for watching videos and sharing photos to friends and family on the big screen
    13.3" Capacitive Touchscreen: With its 13.3" capacitive touchscreen, the FamilyPad 2 allows you to use 10-point multi-touch gestures with ease. Its display features a 16:10 aspect ratio, a 1280 x 800 native resolution and supports up to 16 million colors
    Dual-Core ARM Cortex A9 Performance: The FamilyPad2 has a dual-core 1.6GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor, combined with quad-core ARM Mali 400 MP4 graphics, which delivers plenty of processing power for Android to run quickly and efficiently
