    I didn't check, I just plugged it in so it would be fully charged when I get home. I will verify tonight though. I fully expect it is 2.1 but maybe I will be in for a surprise.

    I hestitate to add anything, but I did just see in the Viewsonic Gpad thread that he used pocketgear.com to sideload the App market... and I've also heard of slideme (not sure exact address).... just an fyi. Hope it helps.

    Looks like nothing good will be out till Gingerbread/Honeycomb is out. So this is another that is off my list. Elocity is not looking so good if Tegra 2 can't play videos. Wow what a horrible start to release of anticipated Tablets.

    I don't know AndroidIsTheTruth
    Seems from what I'm reading so far about the Archos70 from the people posting who have theirs, They seem to be more than happy. Even though shipped with 2.1 they are saying good, quick, responsive etc.
    I'm still hanging out to see some more reviews and videos, but I still think it is the best tablet on the market for the price.

    Typing this from my a70.capacitive screen is great great great.yes it has 2.1 u1 but it's zippy .i have launcher proinstalled and it is awesome.angry bids and mini squadron works too. Wifi hotspot works with droid x.adhoc don't. I personally can't get bluetooth tethering to work but others have.bluetooth file transfers work perfectly with phone and home network.has great wifi.very responsive. I usually don't use task managers but it seems to help if I kill apps every so often on the tablet. I'm using swype to type as we speak.can't wait for froyo but not really worrying about it yet.i have gappsforarchos installed. Market, gmail works great.alerts and alarms work.had played most videos I have tried.i have installed rock player as to avoid paying for codecs. Divx/xvids in mkv works.have not tried hdmi yet. Waitingon my usb adaptors to test drives and such. I LOVE my a70 so far.showed it to some guys at work and they are getting one. Did I say how much I love the capacitive screen.one thing missed on my a7.
    (wish it had a hard home button on front to wake it up though)

    Can you tell me where you ordered it please. Archos.com won't allow orders from Australia so will have to source from somewhere else.

    Any ideas are welcome

    Thanks

    Sweet man, I actually did find it last night. it installed with no problems and I've got full google apps. really loving the tablet so far. touch screen us very responsive. processor seems snappy, probablya little more so than my Droid1 over clocked to 1.3ghz. screen size is a great compromise between a phone and something likea net book. first impressions are very good.
