Huge review on ArchosLounge.net

Posted by Charbax on 6th September 2008

ArchosLounge.net just posted a huge 18 page review of the new Archos 5 at http://www.archoslounge.net/Archos-5-le-test,8296.html.

The review is in french but you can find lots of pictures, lots of nice videos including some like this one in HD quality on Vimeo, that looks and sounds like the 2001 Space Odyssey.

Also check their 21 minute long video on Dailymotion of them browsing around on many different websites. Browsing is really fast, although the latest firmware still is beta. Even AJAX sites like the AJAX versions of Gmail, Netvibes, Google Maps, all those sites work now in a pretty usable way!

Here’s a nice video from ArchosLounge.net showing the Interface:

The new much improved AJAX and Javascripts support I think could make the device compatible with more Opera Widgets, as well as special widgets for customized versions of Google Maps and stuff like Meebo for Instant Messaging could be done now.
