    It's nice to see manufactures step up to make reasonably priced phones. That are unsubbed.

    I have an old unlocked iPhone that I use for overseas travel. It's falling apart and needs replacing before I travel this summer. I may grab this up. Archos' quality isn't exactly great though.

    I've only owned one Archos device, but learned three things from the experience:

    (1) Archos somehow knows how to make affordable devices that look damn good for the price.

    (2) Archos promotes their products well, promising all kinds of decent features.

    (3) Sadly, at release time the said product typically lacks a considerable number of promised features -- some of which show up soon after in firmware updates, some never.

    Beware Archos. They talk a good game but never fully deliver.
