Well, actually, make that pre-newbie, as I have yet to become an Android tablet owner, but am strongly leaning in that direction, and would be considering the Archos 70 as one of the better choices for my price range. I only have a couple of questions: 1) I keep seeing instructions for how to hack it so you can use "Google Market" or "Android Marketplace." Am I correct in understanding that these are two names for the same thing? Or are they two different app stores? 2) Has anyone tried their 70 with the Kindle and/or Nook readers for Android? How does the display look -- are there any weirdnesses I should know about? I'm aware that the Nook Color has a higher-res display, but it seems to require a whole lot of hacking to turn into a full-fledged Android tablet. Being able to use any tablet as an e-reader would be important to me. If I bought a 70, would I always be wishing I'd gone with the Nook Color instead?
