Arnova 10 casing is a glossy plastic, it feels really cheaper than the platic-metal material used in the Archos 101 IT. There is a speaker hole located in the back of the device.
From the left to the right: Volume switch (up/down), power button, stereo jack connector for earphones/external speakers, USB port, micro USB connector, micro SD card slot, reset hole, power connector. There is a plastic cover over an HDMI like plug, we have no idea if there is a real connector and circuit logic behind
The USB connector is not specified to be USB host compatible, which has been confirmed by our tests, where the keyboard, mouse and hardisk did not get detected and used.
The digital camera is a front facing model with a 0.3 Mpixels resolution (640 x 480 pixels), which gives relatively poor results for a camera, but should be enough for video conference applications.
