    After a fair bit of research I'm hoping to get a range of the archos internet tablets to play with 43, 70 & 101 ... not too expensive and from reviews and spec seem the best of the low cost bunch until the 3.0 ones get released.

    I have upgraded my ePad to Froyo and can confirm that it does appear to have increased the battery life. It also fully turns the screen off in standby, rather than just dimming it.

    Still working on 3G functionality, but I believe the issue is with my Huawei modem and not the ePad.

    Yeah, I've tried with a couple of the Froyo 2.2 (x86) builds. Got it on no probs, but couldn't get the touchscreen to work. Still struggling to get ubuntu/meego/*insert your flavour of linux here* to work with touchscreen on it
