Archos tablets doubled sales last year. Tied Samsung in Europe.

I wanted a small WiFi handheld for vacation this past Christmas season.
Anyway, I have followed the French tablet company Archos for a while and hoped they would come out with a new Generation (9) Archos 5 replacement for the old ones which I had some experience with. Some actually have a 250GB and 500 GB drives. A friend has a 500.
They didn't, but on the spur of the moment in December, before we embarked on vacation, I bought from that friend, a used Archos 43 (4.3" screen) (generation 8), 8GB for $70 (less than half price.) It also had quite a few accessories, different chargers, cases, dashboard holder, screen covers, skins, etc. I got a 1 ft box packed! That was "frahse's" Christmas present!

I enjoyed using it.

The article I direct you toward shows that Archos doubled its sales last year and was tied with Samsung in Europe with both being behind Apple. Pretty good company.
