    Archos 101 Tablet, will it get the 3.0 upgrade, or the fuul Google Market?

    I need some help! I'm really thinking about getting one of these tablets (the 101), my only concern is will they be upgradeable to future versions of Android, such as the anticipated 3.0 release?, and will they get the full Google market? Or should I wait to see the fabled Motorola tablet that is coming out? Any help would be great, thanks.

    Archos didn't provided much support for it's previous generation Android tablet. That's why I would not bet on some official upgrades. However, at least the market will be hopefully hacked by the community ...

    People say this, but they are still releasing firmware updates for a tablet they released a year ago... So.. I disagree with this...

    Also, NO ONE knows if right now if ANY device will be able to upgrade to Gingerbread, as it doesnt exist yet... Google has made NO TRUE announcements about it, everything is rumor or speculation.

    The Google market is probably a likely hack, but dont buy the device thinking that, as it could never happen....

    Yes, they released some updates, true. But they are still only updating the 1.6 firmware, right?

    This is a media device.. Why not focus on improving what they offer on 1.6 Firmware. There is no need ultimately to do 2.1 or 2.2 at this point. It is a one year old device, and 2.2 devices are coming out. Its not if the device doesnt function cause its on 1.6.

    As I have said before. Buy the device for what it does today. Upgrades are a perk, not a right.

    Yes, I agree with you in almost everything. It is definitely better to have a good and stable 1.6 firmware then clumsy 2.1 or 2.2. And as you said, you should be buying what's for sale today and not what may come as an upgrade.

    I just believe that the unreleased 2.1 firmware for Archos 5IT is kind of an indication that you should not put much hope on the official .0 release for 8th generation tablets.

    Is there any way to be able to browse the AppsLib market without actually owning an Archos tablet? I have pre-ordered an Archos 101 and I'd like to start looking through the available apps so that I can make plans for which of them I want to obtain.

    they have it on the web... and it is a good listing...

    AppsLib

    the android market web site only hit's on a few high lighted apps... in NO way should the web site be an indication that it is a complete listing of what's available...

    if you do some researh you'll find that they have already found a way to easily load the Android Market on these devices.. at least on the 2.1 version that they are currently being shipped with... that MAY change when it goes to 2.2
