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.
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.

Pros: After doing a lot of research and checking reviews, I decided to give the Archos 43 a try. It's fast, open, and packed with features. I love the HDMI out and the apps really make it a useful portable computer. Top Pros: Cost Open Source Directly accessible storage (8 + 32 G!!) No more crApple or ...
Cons: Resistive screen. Get a fine tipped stylus and you'll be glad. Not a lot of memory. Use a app killer and auto kill to keep things moving. OS can be a bit fussy and can lock up, but this has been fixed mostly with apps and firmware updates. HDMI out is great, but don't expect 1080p. The little GPU...
