    Friend of mine is expecting her shipment to arrive next week.

    But then, the 'Turbo' version was never going to be that exciting, the advantages over the 1GHz version are minimal.
    On the other hand, even the 4460 only brings enhacements for some extreme HD/3D formats, and slightly more graphics clock....but then why would anyone game on a tablet?

    The 20% performance increase in the processor for the Turbo variant is certainly worth $10, and will likely gut whatever sales of the lesser model Archos has had here in the States. The 4460 upgrade will provide a substantial improvement to both 3D games and the general UI, once Ice Cream Sandwich hits. This won't be a differentiator though, as any device with an as powerful GPU will have the same performance. With media playback as Archos bread and butter, they will no doubt be working to take most advantage of the GPU for HD media playback, both on-board and through HDMI. As for gaming on a tablet . . . well plenty do on the iPad/2. But like the mainstream gaming space, developers go where the money is.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Who tells you Ice Cream Sandwich isn't going to be ready before the end of Q1 2012? My guess is it's ready to be showcased by CES a month from now.

    Wonder if you could replace the mechanical HD with an SSD. Don't really have a use for 250G of storage in a tablet, but wouldn't mind 80-100G SSD. Reply
