Archos 28 Internet Tablet


Can Android work on a media player with a 2.8in display?

Android 2.2 ; Good format support

Resistive touchscreen ; Low resolution ; Small display ; Poor app performance

These complaints extend to the Archos 28's controls, all of which are touch-sensitive, save for the power button that has been located oddly on the bottom-left corner of the device. Especially lamentable is the absence of a physical volume control,...

Archos 28 Internet Tablet


The cell phone-sized Archos 28 Internet Tablet sure reminds us of an MP3 player, but its frustrating touch-screen is its biggest flaw no matter what you call it.

Inexpensive. Internet access with simple browser. Solid file support.

Very weak touch screen. Apps library is weak, confusing, and feels unfiltered. Charging battery can result in device crashing.

Not a bad introduction to Android


I purchased this for my mother to stop her nicking my Samsung Galaxy S to play a game called "Word Mix". Anyway it came today and overall impressions are favourable.

Cool on a budget


I had my doubts when I purchased this device. I hadn't had a hands on experience with Android yet, and over the years I have tried many hand-held mp4 players that haven't lived up to the product description. This product is different. I recommend...

Great battery life ; Compact/Highly portable ; Very Clear Screen ; Runs wide range of media formats ; Multi-tasking

Doesn't come with a wall charger, only a USB cable. This isn't a big deal, because you can pick up your own for cheap if you want one. Charges relatively fast on computer/USB ; Wireless a 'little' weak. Not a big deal given the price

Good for the Money


I really like this as wireless music player and for streaming Internet radio. Like a tiny Swiss Army knife, the Archos 28 does a lot of things, but only the basic features shine in this unit. Not a substitute for a full size notebook PC.

Very small and handy - more than just an MP3 player

Tiny screen and weak wireless

Great Tablet


Was bought as a Christmas gift for my son, who is extremely happy with it. He did not know what to expect but has gotten a lot of enjoyment and usefullness out of the unit

Very nice features, OS stable

Ran into a problem with the screen, so far Newegg has made it fairly easy to replace the tablet
