Great little device with supurb display, but single touch and old Android.

Summary: This is a very nice tablet with some real pros and some cons. One noticeable problem is that it has a resistive rather than capacitive touchscreen. It requires a slightly heavier touch and will only recognize a single touch point. It is not multi touch. However the responsiveness is actually better than I expected. For most applications on a device this small it's quite good. The biggest problem I've found, is that it runs Android 2.2, an older version of android.
Summary: The Archos 43 4.3-Inch 8 GB Internet Tablet is one of the best tablets I own. I have 6 tablets of different sizes and abilities, but my Archos 43 4.3-Inch 8 GB Internet Tablet is my go to tablet. It is very quick and responsive for games and internet access. I am planning on buying a larger Archos when the price is right from Amazon. Archos is an Excellent company!!!
basically its an awesome little tablet, and is affordable.

Summary: I bought the 16GB version basically for entertainment and storage. I pretty much wanted an ipod touch, but I wanted Android. I hate using an apple, lol. Anyway, this thing exceeded my expectations, and I love it. Pros: big screen with high quality picture battery lasts for ever internet can be mobile version or pc version can dual-boot w/ linux angstrom easily connects to tv for larger viewing great sound quality from built in speakers touch screen lightweight IT HAS A...
Summary: When I purchased this product, I was looking for basically a wireless tablet that could fit in my pocket. I didn't want to spend all of the money for an Apple product so I did my research and found this little guy. This Archos allows me to browse the internet with ease, play music and video through my personal headphones or through it's own stereo, and take decent photographs. There is a space for a Micro SD card as well for increased storage space.
Summary: Archos 43 is another great internet tablet from Archos. The Archos 43 has a bright and vibrant 4.3 inch screen. This device was originally designed to be a phone, so it is great for Skype calls. (Although it does not have any cellular capabilities) Even though the device does not come with the Play Store, you can still install it. In AppsLib, the app store for the Archos 43, search and download ArcTools. That app will install the Play Store for you.
Summary: After 5 months of heavy use as a music player and web device it still works great. The touchscreen is very responsive (especially with a stylus). The official android market was very easily added using arctools downloaded from appslib. I've dropped it multiple times as well. I will say the camera isn't very good, but that is about the only downside.
