    i just got my A70 250gb today and am trying to get it all set up.
    1) how can i tell what type of email account i have to sign in?
    2) Have you guys ever heard of ADW launcher? if that wont work are their really any good themes available?
    3) Im not too familiar with tethering but i have a Motorola milestone XT270 if anyone can explain that to me. I can connected them with blue tooth but it says they are paired but not connected

    thank you very much guys

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    1. For Appslib, you can cancel and not register and still download free apps without email
    1. For Amazon, You can use any email address
    1. For Market, You need to use either a registered Gmail account or can use the email address you used for your Milestone to access Market
    2. I have used ADW and Zeam. Some love ADW, others Zeam. I ended up with Zeam. But that is me. You should be fine with ADW over the default
    3. You can tether. There are step by step instructions at Archos under their FAQ/Support section. It would be easier for you to go to Archos.com and read this link
    ARCHOS
    or This link gives a general intro. It is for the Gen7 A5,but process is similar. ARCHOS

    Most emails are POP based. Some may do POP and SMTP. Receive via POP and send via SMTP.
    Did you run the Market Fix, Some people have to run the fix more than once to find everything. (Do not ask me why.I have no idea.) I had to run the fix (Delete cache and such more than once to get Zeam)

    If you installed the Android Market you can install the Gmail app (you don't need to know any info other than your account info). This will allow you to configure and sync multiple gmail/google apps accounts (one will be the default). The generic "email" app that came pre-installed will allow you to sync your work email, ISP provided email or other online free service like yahoo or Hotmail.

    Don't we all. I wish I had the time and knowledge resource to create the best of both. Zeam is Lightweight, but has it's issues. ADW is nice, but to me a bit clunky at times. I chose Zeam. But, keep an eye out at all launchers.

    You can search for Surprise Flash for 10.2 on Market. And 10.1 is available from Appslib. I am using 10.2 and am happy. There is no perfect Flash for Gen 8. But 10.2 is really close

    I use SkyFire for my browser to view Flash content and the downloaded Adobe Flash app to play my YouTube, VeVo and other flash apps.
