Archos 5 Internet Tablet with Android Vs my HTC Hero.
« on: January 10, 2010, 02:03:07 AM »
My missus got me a 160GB Archos 5 Internet tablet for XMAS and I thought I'd share some shots to show how it stacks up aganst my Android based HTC Hero:

Android Interface:

When in Android, it's your standard config with some changes for the high resolution screen.

Screen Resolution comparison:

The difference between browsing on my phone and the Archos is amazing. The Archos has a faster CPU than my Hero and it eats through pages like me eating through a pizza! With the default zoom, you can see far more than you can on the Archos compared to my Hero thanks to it's higher resolution and larger screen.
Archos Media Player (pictures and music)

Media playback is superb and viewing pictures and images on the screen is really nice.

No case and it is quite fat. The flash models are extremely thin but I wanted the extra storage built in.

The flash ones come in from 8gb to 32gb but you can put an extra 32gb micro sd card in them too.

Edit: I forgot to mention it does 720p video too with the hdmi dock!
