I have it on my tablet but what looked like a good buy at the time is now turning into a problem,mainly due to low build quality and poor firmware,i now have a 10 inch archos tablet that after the latest firmware update loses battery power while switched off,but that doesn't matter now as the switch has packed in and it wont switch off anyway,after reading reports on the archos forum they dont look like the best company to deal with faults,may just put it down to experience and go down the ipad road.
Dont think i will put it on the phone too small a screen for me Very Happy

Yes I had an archos 70 internet tablet and had many updates for it aquired direct from the Archos website but I have never been totally happy with it, I then purchased a Samsung tab 7 inch android tablet which while better than the archos 70 was still not brilliant,then I got an ipad and have not looked back as this is always updated and the latest update to iOS 5 has made it possible to get firmware updates direct to the ipad which are now just what the changes are and not the full os. the ipad just works and I use mine for surfing,email,pictures,films and books.It is great for camping as it lasts so long.

I got the archos at £149 to see if i had a use for a tablet,must admit i like the android system but do appreciate the superior system of the ipad so will give it thought.

You get what you pay for. I have found that every thing just works. I did purchase a keyboard to plug the ipad into thinking that the onscreen keyboard would be the same as the android ones but it was not it was much better and I have never used it as the onscreen was brilliant to use

Couldn't agree more you get what you pay for,the archos was a trial which i thought if i liked the tablet idea i would replace in about 6 months,with the ipad being top of the list,before purchasing i didn't know if i would want 3g or not but now find wifi will suffice,so i can rationalise the cost of the archos as saving me £100 on not buying a 3g ipad leaving a deficit of £50 have to think about it,the picture upload worked congratulations

This picture upload procedure seems long winded, pity it cannot be done via straight copy/paste.

Back to the ipad, I am supprised that you are not considering the ipad with wifi and 3g .I know that it takes a micro sim card but I managed to get hold of a sim punch which will convert a standard sim to a micro sim and I got a carrier to convert it back to a standard sim when required but I am considering an ipad 2 as my ipad is one of the 1st ipads released and the wi-fi and 3g was not available at the start and I was using my 3g to wifi unit but with a new wi-fi_3g ipad with 64GB as my present ipad only has 16GB that I am short of storage when I try to add extra video's/pictures/apps to it. This will be great for camping as it is a very compact setup.

No just the wifi my phone will give a wifi hot spot which i can share with up to 5 other connections,we sometimes have two laptops and the archos on at the same time or i can tether via usb,its on a no down load limit contract with no small print so a 3g sim would be a waste of money,if i cut my sim to fit the ipad it would mean Nancy couldn't connect at the same time.

As I no longer have angry birds on my phone, I'm currently wasting time on this -
