    Archos portable movie player

    Just FYI, many people don't even know these exist, and the newer runs the Android platform.

    I personally don't have the one with the Android system because I only use it to watch movies when I travel (I am usually gone 3 weeks out of the month). The battery realistically lasts about 5-7 hours, the screens look awesome, and they have WiFi, flash support, etc etc. Basically everything the iMaxiPad doesn't. And they are much cheaper. I got my non-Android 250GB player refurbished for 200 bucks from Archos and it works amazing.

    Oh snap. I have a 250g Archos as well. Works like a charm, with few bugs. I heard the Android one is a big improvement.

    I just bought a Archos 7 for the wife. She loves it.

    When you mean the cords for the droid do you mean the usb cord? If so, how did you plug it into the Archos, they have a unique slot...

    I just double checked the Archos and I did not see a micro USB slot. What are you talking about?

    Aha, so you're talking about the Android version. Problem solved.
