Excerpt: The name pretty much gives away this tablet. The Archos 32 Internet Tablet is probably the smallest tablet available to consumers. This tablet has a 3.2 inch screen and it has a resistive screen. This tablet runs on Android 2.1. I find that the Android version is not upgradeable. It has an internal storage of 8 GB with no expansion slots available. Now that you know a bit about this tablet, here is my recommendation. I do not recommend this tablet and here’s why: 1.
Summary: Really better than ever expected it to be. Sturdy little thing, does everything I need. I really don't want to pack a cell-phone, but this allows me to keep in touch with my hot spot if needing to. Grocery and other list aways with me. Can even read a book while waiting in unexpected situations. Paid $99.99, couldn't believe the price.
Summary: I have owned Archos devices in the past and I have been very pleased with their quality and durability. However, I recently purchased 2 of these(Archos 32 3.2") and neither of them worked properly from day 1. One of the two would only connect to my wifi if I disabled my security. This was clearly not going to happen. The second unit would tell me that it was "out of range", even when I set it directly on top of my router.
superb music performance and all round great little machine

Summary: purchased this to replace my trusty L Player which has the best music performance of any device i have ever owned. the 32 is not bad at all with a pair of decent sennheisers attached. it really performs well the android experience is not bad either. the 32 was every bit as responsive as my next door neighbours iconia tablet. the screen is resistive but i think thats ideal for the screen size. using multi touch on a smaller screen is a complete waste of time.
Summary: Do not buy the Archos 32 or any Archos products!! I bought this product and it broke within four months. The built quality of the Archos 32 is really bad. The whole structure is flimsy and my device screen mysteriously shattered into pieces and that was the end of my Archos 32. I don't know how it happened and many other people have experienced the same thing.
Summary: I bought it for my son, set it up for him and gave it to him. He said it was great, it did what he wanted to do with it, and had no complaints.....until the LED screen broke in his pocket a week after he got it. Of course the warranty didn't cover damage to the screen so....it is currently at the manufacturers getting an estimate for repair. I strongly suggest a protective cases of some sort and don't carry it in a pants pocket.
Does not cut off, you have to let battery drain out!

Summary: I purchased this Archos 32 as a birthday gift for my fiancee. He's not a hard man to please. He just wanted a new mp3 player with touch screen and bigger screen size. I reseach just about everything b/4 I purchase. I saw a few bad reviews, but still considered this player because of the price and storage size. It worked great for about 6 months. I bought it in Jan 11'. It had a few freeze ups b/4 June 11', but we thought nothing of it, just did the reset.
Summary: I have used 10 inch tablet and 4.3 inch tablet. Both are androids. They are good. But as I have both desktop and laptop I do not need android tablet as my work horse. Also, 10 or 4.3 inch are still too bulky and Archos 32 is perfect for traveling. It is not very slow and works relatively stable. Touch screen works ok also. Android 2.2 is working great. In addition to that you can access shared network drive through wireless.
