    You said it had 256mb of RAM to store applications but an 8 gig disk. Were you meaning to say that the unit has 8 gigs of disk space but only 256mb is available to the user?

    The specs do say 256mb of RAM and an 8 gig disk, so is that not what you actually get?

    The buttonless design of the Archos 7o will put it in a good place to receive Ice Cream Sandwich update when it comes out…. Coincidence or by design? Who knows…
