SHINY VIDEO PREVIEW: Archos 7 media tablet

The other day at a trade show I got some hands-on experience with the Archos 7 media tablet. You can see the results in the video above, but what I really wonder is who the market for these devices is. They’re not easily controllable enough to have a good web experience. The streaming media is good, but if you’re in wi-fi range of your server, then why would you need to stream?

It’s expensive, too. £359.99 for 160GBs and £439.99 for a 320GB model. For that price, you better have a damn good idea about what you’re going to use the thing for before you buy it. What would you use it for? Ideas in the comments, please.
