Archos 5 Internet Tablet: Will It Be Stable Now?

Archos kicked out a firmware yesterday for the Android-powered Archos 5 Internet Tablet. See the Changelog.

I was viewing a near-endless live video session yesterday by JKK and Chippy, watching with several hundred other people as a Finnish device I won’t name was demonstrated. Afterwards, Chippy finally heard of the Archos firmware update and decided to tape the process.

Two very instructive videos after the break!

Chippy was warned to use his PC for the upgrade, but he went for the This Is What The Average Buyer Will Do Method. Good for him!

Archos Fans is the site to monitor about this device. The firmware mentioned here is also being discussed in their forum.

I have another post planned about the Archos 5 Internet Tablet and the ePub reading software Aldiko.
