Excerpt: Quote from review: "Normally, critics chuckle with maniacal glee given the chance to savage a really awful product. But we take no joy in reporting the Archos 32, the company 's 3.2-inch Android -based portable media player (or, as the company pretentiously calls it, an "Internet tablet "), is a complete disaster.
Excerpt: Normally, critics chuckle with maniacal glee given the chance to savage a really awful product. But we take no joy in reporting the Archos 32, the company’s 3.2-inch Android-based portable media player (or, as the company pretentiously calls it, an “Internet tablet”), is a complete disaster.
Cons: Voices in music and video sound faint or missing, Fuzzy screen, Limited number of Archos-optimized Android apps, Slow processor, Poor VGA camera, No expandable memory
Excerpt: The Archos 32 is a 3.2-inch touch screen tablet computing device that comes without the burden of a monthly cellular bill or contract. It runs the Google Android mobile operating system and has a solid construction all with an amazingly cheap price tag.
Pros: Great music/video interface, Android 2.2 "Froyo" installed, No contracts/monthly bills
Cons: Low-quality display, No multitouch, No access to Google Marketplace
Summary: The Archos 32 is a pretty good portable media player — if you’re cool with a device that has a 3.2 inch, 400 x 240 pixel display, no speaker, and very few physical buttons.
The internet tablet was able to handle most audio and video files I threw at it, and they looked pretty good on the little screen. I also really like the custom music and video software and widgets that Archos developed for its newest Android devices.
Conclusion: Now, as Android PMP’s go, this is not bad. I say that because there are those that are better than with news emerging of a Samsung Galaxy Player , the standard is only going to get higher. As a budget Android PMP, though, this is probably one of the best and more than justifies the pricetag.
Conclusion: Overall Archos packs an impressive range of features into an attractive, slimline device, and providing you’d expect to make good use of the flexibility on offer here it’s a nice alternative to an expensive mobile phone. The Archos 32 may have a fairly limited market when you consider the range of current mobiles that can do all of this and more, but as a reasonably priced standalone device there’s plenty of fun to be had for those who don’t want to shell out a lot on an...
Pros: Decent display, range of connectivity, good all-round performance, reasonably priced
Cons: On-screen keyboard can be awkward to use, poor camera, limited Apps on the Android OS, no microSD card upgrade option
Excerpt: Der Archos 32 nennt sich selbst "Internet Tablet", ist aber nichts anderes als ein Multimedia-Player, der sich per WLAN auch mit dem Internet verbinden kann. Damit spielt er in einer Liga mit dem iPod touch , kann diesem aber schon wegen des schwachen Displays nicht annähernd das Wasser reichen. Optik & Verarbeitung: Der Archos 32 ist angenehm klein und mit 72 Gramm schön leicht geraten. In Sachen Optik kann der Player einigermaßen mit dem iPod touch mithalten.
