  • Conclusion: Although it can store a massive amount of data I personally could not justify spending £300+ on something that is heavy and not all that pocketable. But like all gadgets this comes down to personal choice and if you fancy getting one then go for it as its money well spent.

  • Summary: Archos has done a very good job with the design of the Archos 5 Android Tablet and Android does a great job of making the platform stable and user-friendly. That said, Archos’ weak point is still its own software/services.

Shiny Review: The Archos 5

  • Conclusion: You might be paying a lot for this machine but you're getting the most stylish PMP on the market, as well as one which excels in internet browsing and allows you read PDF's. I'd suggest waiting for the sales as they might bundle in some of the ad-ons for free, but if you want a high quality PMP you...

LAPTOP Magazine

  • Excerpt: The Archos 5 is the sexiest device yet from the French PMP pioneer. It has a sleeker body than its predecessors, and eschews physical controls for an entirely touch-based interface.

  • Conclusion: As a video player and web surfing tablet, the Archos 5 is the cream of the crop. The screen is absolutely fantastic, and large enough to really enjoy a movie and read web pages without constant zooming. Yet the player is small (albeit heavy) and slim.

Review: Archos 5 Internet Tablet

Wired
26 September 2008
  • Excerpt: The new Archos 5 wants to challenge Apple’s army of media players with a dirty yet clever trick. It comes in the form of a beautiful, 4.8-inch HD screen that is so vibrant; it makes average features shine like rhinestones and completely blinds you from noticing the deficient ones.
  • Pros: 12.99 mm thickness is perfect for a large pocket (tighty jean wearing hipsters need not apply). Fast ARM Cortex processor moves pages quickly. Supports 3G and HSDPA cellular data connections. DVR accessory completes the system with an HDMI output, composite video input, and universal plug and pla...
  • Cons: Linux-based custom OS too glitchy for comfort. Doesn’t include a built-in mic, so you can’t use it as a VOIP phone. Brassy-metal design might prove too ostentatious for geeky tastes. Need separate dongle for 3G and HSDPA connections. They couldn’t embed 3G in the player? C’mon Archos, stop pullin...
