    well I rarely am outside of WiFi reception or a wall socket for power...
    this will mostly be used at home as well, so again - WiFi.

    but as you said, the tethering from my evo (or even wireless AP on evo) will solve thatproblems.

    glad you are interested too - the actual sales site took them off as per order from Archos - the release date is not actually specified and my be until November... so time to think.

    but for me.... this is a must have :) I hope you do check it out and let me know what makes you decide to or not to buy. my only worry is the 256mb of built in ram... but from reviewers and some reading I DO NOT think that will actually be a big deal. I hope ;)

    I don't have the money, really. But I did place the pre-order. I love my HTC Evo and hope for more customization and opportunities this will make available ... no charge til delivery so I have some time to think.... but I believe YES is the right answer.

    I will really have to wait for some reviews before I could make the purchase but the initial presentation to the wife was promising so this one might go over guilt trip free lol. The fact that it runs on Android is probably my biggest reason for wanting it and I know Archos makes solid hardware.

    ok folks, i am trying an experiment. I flashed a bionix rom, and so far, i have not signed my phone into google. all is going well, but i am running out of places to get legit freeware. I have scoured sourceforge, with limited results.

    i'm asking for your help to find good legit alternatives to the market. ive seen applanet, but don't know squat. i have been going straight to the dev's page, or forum links from xda.

    really, im just looking for a web-based repository.

    it's not like there is nothing free in the market, it's just gonna be ad supported and you'll have to sort through crap.

    i don't think the answer is to find a different repository - it's just to have an idea what you are looking for specifically. look for a program to do what you want, and then find a free alternative.

    i don't know of any single place that lists all legal, open source/free apps available for android.

    if you make the site though. i'll visit often ;)

    AppBrain is a pretty decent site to get apps from. They let you install an app to the droid, and browse the website from your computer, and then it links the installs to your droid for you.

    The free version of Angry Birds is ad supported, but if you turn off your data connections, the ads don't show up!

    Alright guys I updated my hero using froydvillain 1.5 but it keeps dropping calls so I want to reformat it back to 2.1 because it's pissing off customers that I call. Thing is I have no idea how.

    did you do a nandroid backup before flashing?

    if you have nothing you need to save just find a 2.1 rom @ xda-developers. if you want it to be the legit 2.1 rom for you hero - i don't know, but reading the hero sub-forum on xda-dev should give you some answers.

    App recomendations for everyone to check out, I wish I could post a good screenshot of my homescreen but I am too lazy to run through the SDK and I am on stock 2.2.1

    LauncherPro - amazing, just amazing
    BattStatt - beautiful battery charge widget
    Beautiful Widgets - the absolute best clock/weather widget with a TON of skins, also other useful widgets
    Nolock - removes the lockscreen, any hard buttons activate the screen and it works great for me on the nexus one with only 4 hardware buttons on the whole phone.
    WifiWidget by Robert Burger - great wifi widget with IP status, network name, quick access to wifi settings, adjustable appearance, and a wifi switch in multiple widget sizes.
    Save my Attach - save attachments out of Gmail, so useful for me saving pdf's from my professors.
    Transdroid - Remote bit-torrent control (I use it with utorrent) handy widget available.
    Silent time - Set times when your phone is scheduled to be on vibrate or full silent.


    Just an assorted list of what I have been adding to my phone lately.

    My Launcherpro config:
    - Hide notification bar, home button brings down shade at homescreen
    - Hide Icon labels (no-text)
    -3 dock's with round scrolling
    -3 home screens 5rows 4columns
    -No rotation of homescreen
    -Select color is green
    -Messaging, Gmail, and calls icons display unread messages number and missed call number


    and Lastly I'll leave you with a backround I photoshopped for my phone using a pic from google images as the canvas.

    Yea, I was kind of stuck between the DroidX, Droid2 and Galaxy S. I played with them all and the DroidX just seemed like the best fit for me. I do a LOT of media viewing on it and all my movies/tv shows are AVI format, so it took a minute to find it, but I grabbed the ArcMedia player, and it works like a dream. Definately on my required Apps list.
