TouchPad and Archos hardware are leagues apart... of course the HP is much more premium.

But it doesn't run Honeycomb and it's not widely available. ;-)

Paul: Is the screen defect on your G9 as bad as this one.

http://www.arctablet.com/blog/archos-tablet/archos-80-g9-1-ghz-screen-defect/

Seems to be pretty bad in that video, I'm not sure if that is a defective unit, if the person is applying too much pressure to try and make a point, or if that is the norm.

It's in french ; they say Archos is aware of it and has already fix the problem for the next productions to come. Archos says also that this problem doesn't affect the performances or the longevity of the device. And just a part of the actual tablets have this problem.

How's the battery life?

Hi,

How does the 4:3 screen compare to a widescreen tablet.

For example when viewing Iplayer, Youtube etc.

I have never used a 4:3 ratio tablet.

Hi Paul, i tried iconia a100 and i loved it's portability: is the archos 80 a lot bigger then acer? I compared specs sizes, but i prefer a "human" comparation :)

Thank you

USB port in my Archos seems to move in and our out few milimeters beyond its typical sitting point when pulling USB device out of it. Is that a intentional or a sign of manufacturing fault?

It's intentional. When using a 3G dongle in the tablet, you can pull it out a bit to get better reception. After the latest firmware update (3.2.56) you can use the USB port on the back to mount external USB storage and devices too. So far I have tested it with my 320GB external HDD and a Mouse. Hope that clears up the worries about the moving USB port.
