Archos 43 Internet Tablet 8GB Product Shot
Features a stainless steel and injected plastic body construction that is light yet strong.
Strong, Light Body with Convenient Leg Stand
Thanks to a patented plastic overmolding process developed by Archos, which binds high-tensile strength stainless steel inside an injected plastic enclosure, the Archos 43 has a sleek look that doesn't compromise on weight or strength. Measuring 5-3/10 by 2-3/5 by 2/5 inches (H x W x D) and weighing 4-3/5 ounces, this tablet fits perfectly in the palm of your hand and can easily slip into your pocket.

A leg stand on the back of the device allows you to conveniently prop the Archos 43 on a table or your lap for comfortable viewing.

HD Touchscreen for Excellent Viewing Quality
Showcasing a large 4.3-inch touchscreen with 854-by-480-pixel display, the Archos 43 offers portable HD video playback. This high-resolution screen lets you enjoy your pictures' smallest details, while the 16:9 format is ideal for rendering videos in the best quality. A g-sensor accelerometer senses how you're holding the tablet and adjusts the screen view accordingly. And, you have plenty of storage space for photos and videos with 8 GB of flash memory.

Built-In HD Camera and Camcorder
With the Archos 43 Internet Tablet, you can film or take pictures of your friends and family in HD quality at 720p resolution (maximum). Once you've got your photos and videos, you can create a slideshow with the Photoframe application or watch your videos directly on the device. Better yet, upload your videos to YouTube or Facebook to show them to the world.

Connected Android Tablet Allows Personalization
Android is the application framework developed by Google for connected mobile devices. It comes with a full pack of connected apps such as a web browser and email application. The five home screens of the Android user interface allow advanced personalization: icons can be placed, moved, or erased with the flick of a finger. Thanks to the home screen widgets, users can instantly access their favorite applications. Get the latest news, send emails, and chat with your friends with ease.

The Android browser is intuitive and complete thanks to Flash 10 compatibility and a 1 GHz high-speed processor. Enjoy the web in its full glory--no need for pared-down mobile sites.

Full Wi-Fi, PC, and HDTV Connectivity
Stay connected anywhere by tethering the Archos 43 to your 3.5G cell phone. Using your phone's portable Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, or even a USB cable, the Archos 43 can use your smartphone as a modem, giving you easy access to the Internet on your tablet using the data service plan of your cell phone.

The Archos 43 also features Samba and UPnP protocols, allowing you to access videos and movies located on your computer directly on your tablet via Wi-Fi. This means that you can use your Archos 43 as a convenient computer around the house even without keeping your media stored on the device.

An HDMI-out port on the Archos 43 allows you to connect your tablet to your HDTV, letting you enjoy the features of your tablet on a much bigger screen. Watch videos from your tablet, browse your files or the Internet from your couch, and play 3D games using the Archos 43 as the controller--OpenGL 3D graphic acceleration supports the latest 3D gaming technology. You can also connect your tablet to a computer screen.

Intuitive Music Application Plays Multiple Formats
The Archos 43 Internet Tablet features a new music application that provides 3D cover animation support and the ability to add a mini music widget to the home screen. This tablet is able to play MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, OGG, and FLAC music files, keeping your digital music experience as simple as it should be.

Open Interface for Programmers
The Archos 43 Internet Tablet is completely open to programmers, letting you install alternative operating systems, create your own applications, and have complete control over your system environment. Experienced developers and programmers can install Linux Ångström for a dual boot option.

Product and Warranty Information
The Archos 43 tablet includes one built-in speaker, a microphone, and a leg stand. The Android 2.2 Froyo system is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and 7, Mac OS X, and Linux (in mass storage mode) operating systems.

Its battery supports up to 36 hours of music playback, 10 hours of video playback, or 12 hours of web surfing.

The Archos 43 Internet Tablet is backed by a limited one-year warranty.

The touchscreen is very responsive (especially with a stylus).
Andrew
This is may be my mistake, but I will definitely not be buying another once I get too frustrated with the one I have.
MD
Sometimes button presses are registered on an entirely different part of the screen.

The following review is coming from the point of view of a power user/techie who's had a Nokia tablet and an Ipod, who's put Linux on everything in his house including the toaster, who's built several of his own computers, and who generally likes to tinker with and hack anything that he can get his hands on.

If this sounds like you and you have any reservations about buying this tablet, forget them. I think you will like the Archos 43. I skipped the 7" tablets because they're too big to fit in my pocket. I wanted something ultra-portable, and as of now, this seems to be one of the few remaining small tablets around. It is a little old now, but if you're interested in a better Ipod Touch at a fraction of the price, or a perfected successor to the Nokia Internet Tablets of a few years ago, this certainly fits the bill.

Let me start with the negative. I wish this thing had the Ipod's touch screen. The resistive touch screen is good by most standards, but coming from an Ipod Touch, their screen is simply more accurate and responsive. I find it works better when you use the tip of a fingernail rather than a fingertip. Even so, it is still not as good as Apple's. Not bad, but you notice a difference. It is not enough for me to diminish the user experience.

Beyond that, there's not much I miss about my Ipod Touch.

Android is Android. The interface, as you would expect, is slick and easy to use. I have some Android experience, so I was able to get stuff working immediately.

The first two things I did was update the software, then added an APK for Android Market. You can do a search for "archos 43 android market" and you will find the correct APK to install. Just download it and click on it, and when it is finished, reboot.

I do not use my cell phone very often. On my pay-as-you-go terms, I'm basically paying $8 per month. I use on average 2 texts per day. Maybe use 1-2 minutes talking on the phone per week. Why I would sign up for a smart phone plan and start paying like $50 per month is beyond me. I ain't that important or popular yet.

But for someone addicted to the internet, and in need of quick drug references in the clinic and checking up on emails, this is perfect for me. A single payment of $170ish versus 24+ months of cell phone bills giving me minutes I don't need, texts I won't use and stingy data plans at obscene rates made this the logical choice for my needs. Besides, smartphone carriers and their services are a joke in the U.S. So **** em.

Coming out of the box, you have to charge it before it'll turn on. Don't panic like I did and think that it's dead. Just let it charge first. Make a sandwich. Eat it. Watch TV. It's like watching a pot of water boil, so be patient.

You'll probably want to look for the ArcTools app to free yourself from the somewhat limited AppsLib that Archos has pre-installed on it. ArcTools will let you install Google Apps such as Gmail, Calendar, etc. and enable you to access the full Android Market, just like a real phone. Of course, this is not a phone and has no GPS capability, nor does it have 3G or 4G connectivity. This is, after all, an internet tablet. Takes wifi signals only, but where I live, there are plenty of wifi signals available. I... should probably get an antivirus of some sort. Someday. But yeah, I used AppsLib to find ArcTools to get the Android Marketplace, which I then use to get all my other apps, since there's just so much more available than on the AppsLib.

In short, this is one of the best android tablets out there. It is small enough to still fit in your pocket, yet large enough to have one of the best screens ive seen in a while. The biggest complaint that ive heard is the screen, and all you have to do is install an app called launcherpro, and the device becomes 100% more responsive. This is actually what ive seen from many android devices and launcherpro makes everything so much more smooth. The stock keyboard is also a little iffy, but a quick install of either better keyboard or slideIT makes this the perfect device. Oh also as been mentioned before it does not come with the android market on it stock, but a quick google of "arctools" and then your all set up and ready to go.

You can even set up google voice to send SMS and make calls right from your archos! So overall this has been a fantastic purchase.

EDIT: I am retracting my 5 stars down to three, while still follow those steps to increase functionality, the touch screen on mine slowly become unresponsive and then overall stopped working. The build of it felt cheap as well. Very plastic.

Archos 43 4.3-Inch 8 GB Internet Tablet]] The Archos 43 does everything their advertisement says it will do, I've read all the reviews and complaints from other buyers and I'm not having any the bugs they're beefing about, I feel I got a fantastic price from Amazon, I read the instruction manual thoroughly, fully charged it as recommended and I'm having no problem surfing the net, installing my own apps for banking, ebay, PayPal, local weather, games and the thousands of apps available from the Google Apps Market (appslib), long charging time, short battery life, touch screen problems, all of these complaints do not exist on my unit, maybe I just got lucky with mine, but, I have another Archos a 101 and it works beautifully too, so maybe there IS something to reading the manual, I also purchased an 8GB memory card for extra space, but haven't needed it yet.

I think most of the complaints about the Archos 43 stem from pilot error and the fact that many of the buyers paid between $150. & $200. and expected to get I-Pad performance, "get real", "STOP CRYING" and read the manual, I feel if you do you'll find this is a nifty little device, I'm loving mine and the more I use it the better it gets. If your thinking of getting one "(Do It)" read the manual completely, fully charge it and I think you'll be as happy with it as I am----I recommend it!!! Eleanor B.
