    I assume this light meter application uses the built-in camera to read light levels. The camera in the A43 is pretty junky - virtually useless. It may perform this function, however. I may have to try it, though I have a really good light meter. I have read several good reports of Bluetooth tethering with a cell phone. I guess some work better than others. The relatively high resolution display of the A43 is good for reading web pages. I even read part of a crime novel while waiting at the car wash. The size is subjective. It's a typical phone size, maybe a bit thinner, and the screen is very good in my opinion - easy to read and quite responsive to touch.

    Bye. :cool:

    Here are 191 reports on tethering to read through: Forum.ArchosFans.com - View topic - List of Bluetooth tethering phones that work on Froyo :)

    I will give a light meter application a try and see what happens. I have my semi-pro legacy light meter to compare it to.

    Bye. :cool:


    UPDATE: The A43 does not have a light sensor, which the light meter application wants to see. So - no go.
