Archos 7 Home Tablet Video Review



W3Schools

A video review of the Archos 7 Home Tablet. It’s a 7″ Android tablet with WiFi, but no phone. It runs Android 1.5 and has a resistive touch screen. It’s available with up to 8 gigs of flash storage and it has a microSD card slot to further expand storage. It runs on a 600MHz CPU with 128 megs of RAM, and typical of Archos, it has a good video player. It’s inexpensive at $199 but you get what you pay for.

    Crazy, I was cleaning up in my room and found this device tucked away in a box. I have a multi-adapter multi-voltage charger at the office…..think I’ll try powering it up on Monday and seeing what Android 1.5 can do in modern times. LOL! Wow…..this was so cool back in the day, had music and movies loaded up on it and would take it to work when I worked graveyards. Wasn’t top of the line. But did what I wanted it to do 🙂

    its weird how much five years changed….200 dollar tablets these days are way more advance and faster now. Heck even 100 dollars ones are now im sure. If they tried selling this these days it probably have a price of 20 or 30 dollars….

    I was given this tablet for free and I can honestly say its the most useless fucking device ever built. Its brick slow, its riddled with bugs, the apps are garbage and the touch experience will drive you fucking insane unless you use a rubber mallet. My Archos tablet is now serving a useful life as a coaster. You could communicate quicker with smoke signals than this retarded Android powered piece of shit, its fucking hopeless..

    ehh, how am i suppose to turn this thing on? it was originally my brothers, but he hasn't used it in 1-2 years. what voltage charger does it take? i found a 3.7volt cellphone charger that fits. the charge light is on… but i can't get the screen to come on. i have a 5 year old heavily abused psp2000 that still works, so i don't understand what my problem is. my brother also has 2 net books and an eyeclops mini projector he doesn't use. from this review it seems my psp does more anyway.

    you need to have a firmware flashed on it so you can download it form the play store. If you dont wanna do that, just go to 4shared.com and find a bittorent on there and download it directly to your device
