Since where talking about microSD card, is there a way to read the microsd card from the eee pad with a PC?
I owned an Archos 101 and when I mount it to the pc, I got 2 removable devices that appears on my PC, but not with Asus and I don't know how to mount or eject it from my pc (I only see a...
it depends on your need. If you like fast response, way much better screen quality, more than just 2 simultaneous touch and a huge range of applications that works at 99.99%, then I can see why someone will want an Ipad2 instead.
Love Archos for that! btw, I did a clean format installation on mine when it was for 2.1.3. How can you see if you have 64mb of memory now?
what Archos said: "Memory: enable 32MB swap by default and increase it to 64MB after Android reset or full device reformat"
What is the brand of the mini SD card? it is possible that you bought it from ebay? Because there's lot of fake memory cards on ebay that are corrupted, lot of bad sectors, lot of them hacked to show the capacity of 16GB or 32GB when it don't have that kind of storage space.
it won't answer to your question, but here's an alternative.
I'm using SlideIT on my 101, it's a copy of swype. It works flawless on portrait mode. in landside mode, the software buttons of android get on the way but doesn't bother much.
It depends on your budget and needs.
for $300, there's not much tablets like the Archos 101 (multitouch, capacitive, ...)
In my point of view, for web surfing and music, it's great. For anything else, not that good.
Also thank you for testing a different hard drive. Since the OP wanted to use his 250GB WD HDD, your test is more accurate in his case. and it also help me to not going telling anyone that every portable external HDD works on the Archos 101.
I just tried another test with a playable on Archos 101 video. It can be played directly from the usb port on a USB thumb or Portable external hard drive! it'll use the power directly from the Archos 101 and not independently on a power adapter. It is tested with a 250GB LaCie portable external HDD.
I wish you have also the 8 gen 70 so you can compare the screen of the 101 with it.
in my point of view, my archos 101 screen has the worst view angle I ever experienced so far on a lcd screen (black tones are really annoying whenever you move the angle a little). and have one of the lowest...
By curiousity, I just tried on mine with my portable LaCie drive and it can detect the drive, search for file and will probably play it fine. I can't be sure on how it'll play only because it can't decode the video I tested (I didn't buy the Archos cinema plug-in, so more than 50% of my video...
