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


Again when it worked it did what I expected but based on the fact that I have owned two of them in a twelve month period and they both just stopped working I give fair warning to anyone looking at this device... unless you are in the market for an...

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

Same as Arches 5IT -GPS


I have owned the Archos 5IT since 2009 and while Android 1.6 wasn't terrible then there are more apps on the market everyday that have dropped compatibility for 1.6. Archos is very quick to abandon products as soon as the next years model is released,...

Nice display, decent battery life, great build quality

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