    Don't know if want. I like the aesthetic changes to the top bar, but I don't know about the chrome around the screen…

    Awesome!! But I couldn't wait for Archos to be the "first" to give us an Android tablet under $200. I went ahead and ordered another brand from China… not under $200, but under $100 instead!! If my math is correct, this should qualify as both the first under $200 and 'under $100' as well. Though it could be argued that it doesn't qualify since it's not sold in American stores yet, it's still highly sold on ebay… which is where many of us shop anyway.

    Somehow Archos' news doesn't sound all that exciting any more.

    This is not a "large screen tablet." This is a large screen PMP, or a tablet with a very small screen. Wake me up when there is an Android tablet with at least 1024 x 600 resolution. That's what it takes to make a decent netbook, or a decent tablet.
