Archos 605 4GB WiFi

on 9/24/2008

Very pleased with dealing with Very fair price and shipping was free...product arrived in under 4 days. Fairly pleased with the product that I ordered. My only issue is struggling to access the WiFi capabilities as I live in a part of the state with limited hot spots. Would love to see archos include a picture taking capability to their product. I also would like to see Archos expand their music and video download stores.
