Archos 48 Internet Tablet - 500GB Running Google ANDROID + Wi-Fi (501598)

Size and great picture when it works. I spend alot of time just waiting in different areas and this allowed me to take shows and movies with me to help pass the time, and as long as it worked it was great

This is the second one that I bought, the first one lasted about a year before it quit working. The second is less than 60 days old and it has quite working also. Both of them just stopped being able to load and just sits there like a $200 paper weight

Nice display, decent battery life, great build quality

Android 1.6, resistive touch screen, no GPS, lack of further upgrades past Android 1.6
