I bought the 8GB model. It is the only one that is available to us in the US.
And the battery is still charging. I hope this means it, like the next gen coming out soon, will hold a long charge of 10-12 hours. (I am assuming this since its been almost 3 hours of charging)
I also just noticed Archos is claiming this on their site:
• Music playback time: up to 42 hours
• Video playback time: up to 7 hours
They do not state for normal use however (web browsing, eReader, etc). Maybe that will fall under the Music playback time. If this will actually hold a charge for 42 hours, that would be very very impressive. I just hope that doesn't mean it takes 8 hours to charge
And as I just finished typing this and looked over at it, shes done! Review-Opinion to come shortly.
