If only it was android.
I like what the did with the Archos 5. I almost wonder how much faster it would be with BFS*.

BFS is something that apparently made a Cyanogen build of the Android rom, zippier.

Ive read that that pricing is a little off and will be a little more, but if they can get it in at that price it will be a hit.

I dont get why they dont have 2gb in there, its needed and why the 1.1/510 when the 1.6 is readily avil...

I was really excited...but for that price i want 2gb, and double the HDD and will wait a good 6-8 months post release to see what happens
