Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the site, but I have a question or observation.

I just ordered an Archos 43 IT and noticed that there are not any topics about this tablet (I did a search and did not find one). I'm hoping this is not a bad thing. I'm really excited to get this. If anyone here has one I would be interested in your thoughts. I've read elsewhere good and bad things, but decided it would suit my needs. I really want it for email, a calendar function to keep track of appointments and important dates, the camera is an added bonus that I really don't need same with a ereader and ability to watch movies and such. Also, I love that it is not huge.

 

If there is a topic about this already, can you please post a link. I did a search and could not find one.

Hello,

I have moved your topic to the right forum, as the Archos 43 IT belongs to the Gen8 family of products.

I found the 43IT to be a good device, the main negative point about it being its resistive screen, that is not always easy to operate. The hardware (CPU, memory) and OS are a bit outdated, but it's still a good model for a portable Android device to play videos/music, read eBooks...

Be sure to use Arctools application (that can be found on Appslib) to help you installing Android Market on the device.

Let us know if you like the 43 IT.

Hello,

Thanks for moving the topic and for your reply. I did read about the resistive screen, I'm hoping that it is not to bad. Do you know if Archos is coming out with a newer version of the 43 IT? I would like to get a newer version, but did not see anything like this in the Gen9 family.

 

Thanks again,
