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.

    LOVE THIS!

    Ok, I bought this from Kmart when it was on sale for $159.99, and I've been looking for a tablet with ICS. 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. I've also seen others stating the quality of materials used to make this tablet are cheap. I again disagree, it may be plastic, but it feels as if it'll survive a short fall (4ft max).

    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. No I bought it at Toys R US and they dont allow returns at all on opened electronic items, just... 2/5 Zebramall - See all my reviews This review is from: ARNOVA 10b G3 4GB 10-Inch ICS Tablet (Black) (Personal Computers) I bought this tablet a few days ago and it has turned into a piece of junk.

    Better price than Archos for the same thing..In a way

    0 4/5 Zabeatta "Zabeatta" (Portland Or.) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Archos 5 Internet Tablet with Android compatible Advanced Rapid Wall AC Charger - Amazingly powerful home charge design built with Gomadic Brand TipExchange (Electronics) When I say better price it doesn't mean better quality than any Archos chargers. Most of the Archos charging units are docks.If you don't need or want a dock,this is a good way to go.Gomadic, for me makes the best accessories that work with the Archos line of product.I picked this up even tho I have the battery dock and the DVR snap on.I use when I'm on the road and don't need to record or play back on the TV.My Archos still has good battery life but this was a cheaper on the road back up if the charge did get too low. My first Gomadic product was for the Archos 605 wifi. I picked up a home and car charger and they still work great today. My only tiny tiny tiny problem with this charger is,I wish it worked better with the Archos kick stand.But it work if you get all low fie and use a matchbook cover for balance....lol.(hey it works) If you don't need a dock or if you have one(like me),you cant go wrong with this Gomadic charger at this price..............pick it up 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 14, 2010

I received this product in about four days and the fact I don't need to turn on my computer to charge up my Archos really fast is also a plus. I believe the dock for this wall charger might work on other Archos products. I guess the price is fair since it is interchangeable. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 13, 2010

    Not bad for budget conscious folks!

    UPDATED ON 23 MAY:Okay folks, last update! I also ended up returning the replacement sent by Amazon for a few reasons: (1) there was a minor blemish in the top half of the screen in the corner (it looked like a piece of dirt got caught in the screen), but it was so bothersome - I kept trying to "rub" it out! (2) 8 GB just doesn't cut it folks when you have about 160 apps on your tablet! Add in that you can't move any of said apps to your external sd card...well, enough said. For avid, "prolific" app users, invest in a tablet with at least 16 GB. I had apps freezing and force closing because I just didn't have enough room/memory available (3) On the back of the tablet (bottom left-hand side), it got so hot, I couldn't touch that area or hold my hand there! This only happened when I was charging and using the tablet at the same time, but still! I thought the tablet was going to be damaged, so I eventually returned it.Needless to say I'm a disappointed; an 8"... 4/5 Official ARCHOS, April 19, 2012
