Archos 35 Home Connect review - Part 1 - Introduction and unboxing
Archos 35 Home Connect review - Part 2 - Applications

The picture above shows the homescreen where the four main applications are located: Music, TuneIn Radio, Clock and Photo Frame.

Music application

The Music application is a good heritage from other Archos Gen8 devices, this module lets you play audio and organize your music by albums, artists, or display album covers.

The music can be played from the local storage, the micro sdcard in the device or remote computers (SMB and UPNP connections supported)

TuneIn Radio

TuneIn Radio is a free online Internet Radio that lets you listen to over 50,000 stations all over the world. It covers all sorts of online audio content, from music, sports, news or current events.

Hi,

I just got the ARCHOS 35 Home connect; I've updated the OS to Android 2.2.1 (with internal updater).

I think this is THE device for VIDEO CALLS. It's unique.
It's very good for other functions such as web radio (excellent sound, and great choice of radios around the world), watching web TV, Youtube, Email, and even web browsing on websites not specific to mobiles !

So, I've tried to install the latest version of SKYPE for ANDROID 2.2. No luck, couldn't install the latest 2.6.x.x.

BUT, I've managed to run the SKYPE version 2.5.119. Video is excellent, but sound is "chopped". A newer version would hopefully fix this.

I'm new to Android, so if anybody knows a good reason why the latest SKYPE 2.6.x for Android cannot be installed on this device ?
An error message is returned, something close to "the device is not compatible with this software".

Charles,
Thanks for your feedback on the device.
Most android apps work on the 35HC, but probably are not supported or certified by the software editors, as the device really have an exotic setup for a "tablet": screen resolution, resistive screen, ...
Better Skype support may come later, but there is currenty no warranty. The Video call function for this device, as announced by Henri Crohas during the Keynote in June 2011 is currently not there and it probably won't happen until the device gets Android 2.3 Gingerbread (Video function in Google Talk needs Android 2.3)

Hi there
Does anyone now how to root the device?
I'd like to install squeezeplay on it but it says it is not compatible. I suppose because of the tiny screen. But because I'd be able to operate it remotely that would be a problem. I hope 🙂
Any help appreciated...

This method on XDA made for Archos Gen8 devices should work: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=930197
(I haven't tested though)

This may be a bit late, but I've installed Squeezebox Remote & Squeezeplayer by just grabbing the .apk files from a backup of my Android phone, copying them to the device and executing. Done! V. occasional FC, but perfectly useable

Hope this helps
