Archos 28 internet tablet - unboxing and short overview
Archos 28 internet tablet - unboxing and short overview More info about this device (German): https://sites.google.com/site/thoughtsincyberspace/technik-blog/archos-28 I decided to try out something new, so this is my first step into the Android-world. Archos claimed it to be the cheapest Android-device, so i just checked it out and got one off eBay for 35€. It runs on Android 2.2 "Froyo" and has an ARM Cortex A8 processor @ 800 MHz (usually it runs on 600 or 300 MHz to save power). It has 4 GB of storage, however, it is mounted as "sdcard" so you only have about 200 MB system memory to install Apps (or get App2SD). But it also has some drawbacks: the touch screen responsiveness is not very good sometimes. As you can see in my demonstration of "TouchTest", it sometimes recognizes keypresses where you have not pressed. This is very annoying if you try to enter something with the onscreen-keyboard. Moreover, the entire operating system is very sluggish most of the time. Sometimes, it takes 15 seconds to rotate the screen which is way too long. The web browser also takes ages sometimes to load web pages. And, as you can see in the video, the picture viewer has a wonderful design but tends to crash or just doesn´t load the pictures. There are snappier devices out there, that´s for sure! Or maybe they can fix that with an update. Conclusion: Cheap Android-device which can easily be use as an iPod touch-alternative (excellent music app!) but lacks of touchscreen responsiveness and - sometimes, at least - lacks of CPU power. Important information: The device has no Android Market preinstalled. However, you can install "Arctools" from the AppsLib. This App enables you to download and install Android Market. PS: Sorry, my camera sometimes takes years to focus the image! Questions? Suggestions? Feel free to rate & comment! PT8M32S
