Well, I'm sure it's a simulated screen for one thing. And also, the picture is not exactly color, more like monchrome blue. Maybe they're trying to show what it looks like with backlight? Anyway, 2.5" 160x160 greyscale is a LOT better than the iPod.Drewpy said:"LCD: 2,5 ", large 160 x 160 px 16-greyscale LCD"
They're not colour screens, just the pictures are - how strange!

Compare what the archos can do to the ipod.Drewpy said:Then why, does this Archos player, which costs more than the iPod look #### ugly compared to the iPod?
So what is all this amzing stuff the Archos can do?n3lly said:Compare what the archos can do to the ipod.
The archos isn't competing DIRECTLY against the ipod it does sh.it loads more then the ipod. Doesn't just play music.
Also it's size is pretty impressive for what it can do. Yes it is blocky and a little chunky (cue zen) but yeh nice screen etc so yeh just thought i'd make that point.
Archos is not based in France but in the USAmin said:Apple is exactly like BMW. Technologically speaking it will take the other companies a few years to get up to par with the iPod.
