A foldout stand at the rear is a nice touch, and is great if you want to watch a movie.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

The screen is also pleasingly bright and vibrant.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2011)
Web browsing is quick and simple, with full multi-touch gesture support, which allows you to zoom in and out of web pages by pinching your fingers.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2011)
However, the display's glossy surface does reflect light, which can make it difficult to view the screen when working in bright conditions.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2011)

Operating System

Navigating Google Android's menus is a smooth experience thanks to the sensitive capacitive display.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2011)
It's a shame there's no Android Market, but the Archos alternative is commendable.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2011)
While we didn't get along with Archos' 9-inch Windows tablet, released last year, the Archos 101 thankfully addresses many of our chief concerns.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2011)

Operating system

You also can't access the Android Market to download apps, but Archos has provided an online store that has a reasonable selection of free and paid-for apps and games.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2011)

Apps

The low-resolution front-facing webcam is fine for web chats, while a microSD card slot expands the 8GB Solid State Drive.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2011)

Performance

Performance is strong despite the limited memory, with an ARM Cortex A8 processor running the show.
