Gadgetell Hands On: Archos 32 Internet Tablet

Personally, I have been checking out these new Archos devices since we first started seeing leaks several months back. Given that, and given I was able to find one in stock I finally broke down and pulled the trigger on the Archos 32, though in truth I wanted and will likely still purchase the Archos 43. That said, given I am still looking for a new model must say that I like the one I have just fine. Still, I don’t want to offer this post as a full review, but more of a first thoughts given I have not had it long enough to find out about some of the important things like battery life. Needless to say, my opinion on getting an Archos 43 could still change but at least for now it looks good. Anyway, while Archos is billing this as an “Internet Tablet” it is clearly a PMP, portable media player. I am sorry, but a 3.2 inch display is just not a tablet. Otherwise, first thoughts are good, though truth be told that Android Market hack is weighing heavily on my judgment. Bottom line (for now), this is a relatively inexpensive ($150) media player that seems to do what it is intended to do well.

  1. One thing about the keyboard, it's probably not inaccurate, just make sure when you calibrate it, to use your fingers and not use a pen or a stylus. Because what happens at calibration is that it kind of learns how you prefer to touch the screen. So I suggest to try to carefully do a calibration with your fingers and then try to type in horizontal mode. You only need to calibrate it once for each firmware upgrade, usually Archos releases a bunch of firmware upgrades during the year, adding more features.
