    Now that the Xoom is out and the Nook is covering the low end. Why get an Archos?

    in all honesty was archos really ever alive? they dont make a single tablet that i would even consider decent.

    the archos tablets are about as good of quality as the tablets you can get from walmart for 99 bucks or at a drugstore like CVS or wallgreens.

    I have an Archos 101 as well as a nook & the nook isn't even remotely close as far as features & performance. As long as the XOOM is overpriced & the nook is all but worthless companies like Archos will continue to make money by filling a need in a segment that would otherwise be unfulfilled.

    I have both and a rooted nook still doesn't do what an Archos 101 does.

    Still got it? I'm taking donations! :D

    Seriously, though, Archos isn't dead. There's a whole subforum dedicated to them here:

    Archos Tablets

    They make good hardware, especially now that they're not using Cupcake and Donut to make their tablets around. :)

    you cant be serious.. i have the nook color and i had a galaxy S tab for a bit and the nook out performed the galaxy tab in pretty much everything.

    not to mention the nook color is nice solid feeling device it doesn't feel cheap like most tabs i have used. including the archos.
