Archos 7 Tablet Pros

I found Archos 7 Tablet to be a good one for varied reasons. Some of them I tried to list below. This tablet has got less weight, so it can be easily carried. I could even watch videos on this tablet while holding it with one hand, while being engaged in biking at the gym. Screen of this tablet is matte. That means, it has got less glare. I could watch videos in widescreen format also. This tablet support different kinds of video formats.

I have downloaded e book reader by name Aldiko and it just worked fine on my Archos 7 Tablet. It has also extended support for Swype for typing super fast. I could play great music and watch long videos easily on this tablet. Skyfire browser can be utilized on this tablet. I could also watch flash videos including YouTube videos on this browser.

There are also some drawbacks on Archos 7 Tablet. The screen of this tablet is resistive. Sometimes, it won’t register the tap. After I have set up click on tap sound setting, it could easily fix this problem. There is no support for Android app market from this Archos 7 Tablet. I had to install another market place such as Slideme for getting apps. There is also an option of going on to the web for downloading the apps.

Chip of Archos 7 Tablet is said to be of low quality. I couldn’t create new folders on this tablet. I have noticed unexpected wake from suspend for every two hours. Aldiko e book reader is not functional sometimes. When I have downloaded a new e book, the previous one is getting ‘lost’ in the e book. This flaw has to be fixed. I have learnt that I should not use Aldiko before installing microSDHC card.

Price of Archos 7 Tablet Rs. 8,800/-
