5 out of 5 eggs Incredibly awesome tablet, Great pocket computer! 06/01/2011

This review is from: Archos - 43 Internet Tablet - 16GB Running Google ANDROID + Wi-Fi (501578)

Pros:

None

Cons:

None

Other Thoughts:

As a long-time Linux user, one thing I found particularly interesting about this device is the ability to dual-boot a Linux operating system. The developer firmware is easy to install and provides a basic Linux environment called Angstrom. You can replace the (fairly limited) Angstrom environment with Debian and have a full Linux desktop on the device. Support is still limited but improving.

I bought this to replace my old Dell Axim X50v as nothing supports Windows Mobile 6.x anymore. It is a nice improvement over the Axim without having to pay for a data plan or other expensive services.

The audio quality is also very good in this tablet. I haven't listened to many other players, but with a good set of headphones this will provide a great sound. When running Linux I found that it has a Wolfson audio controller.
