    From what I see on the website, I'm not sure how they used the IDD on this, so ill find out, I guess!

    I sent it to my parents address, so I prob won't get it until Dec 20 something cause that's when I'm flying there for the holidays, as they can't ship it until the 18th (I guess that's when Archos distributes to resellers).

    According to Archos's website, they DO plan on upgrading it to Frg83 (android 2.2.1). Flash, front facing camera, 3d openglide,1 ghz cortex A8....I'm salivating as we speak.

    I'm sure xda folks will be too, so I can't wait till I can get root.

    Archos said its tethering capable with your phone...which would be AWESOME, ill see if I can figure that out once I get it.

    I have to play with one of these in store, hopefully ultimate electrons will get them. Good price compared to the Tab and way more space.

    Looking at another video it looks like the 4 Android buttons are overlays built into the software, which could get a little annoying (I've gotten really used to the touch-sensitive buttons NOT on the screen, but separate on my Moto Droid).

    Be cautious with Archos. I bought an archos 605 wifi device about 3 years ago and while it has been useful and functional, it is a little bit funky. As soon as a newer model came out, they dropped support for earlier versions immediately. They never delivered on their promises for the 605, and stopped all firmware upgrades. You can't get updated maps for the gps addon, the browser never worked fully, and I felt abandoned. Now that I have a rooted D1, I don't miss the archos except for its video out functionality that allows playing movies from it to the tv.

    Well I am crossing my fingers, considering you had it for 3 years, that's probably at least up through its useful life-cycle.

    Is it just me or is the life-cycle of technology getting shorter and shorter?

    I'm guessing that Archos may stick with their Android Tablets for a while, especially if they hope to compete as PMP's have fallen by the wayside and tablets have started shifting to the spotlight.

    Besides, if its Android, I'm hoping that if nothing immediately works to root it (z4 or UniversalAndroot), then the folks at XDA may pick up the slack, as from what I can tell its a pretty powerful budget Android tablet.
