Thanks.

Here's a better link...

Still going through the instructions on this page, we'll see.

Update: Works like a charm. Have Market installed, and all the apps loaded that I was looking forward to seeing on a screen bigger than the Incredible. Very fast machine.

I used to have a Gateway convertible with a dual touch/digital stylus panel, and although it was great for school, I've been looking for something smaller with similar functionality minus the stylus. I have used a Samsung Q1 and the Nokia N800, but those machines are simply too slow. With the Archos 70, the capacitive screen is slightly less responsive than the Incredible or Ipod Touch, but so much better than resistive screens I've used.

All in all, I'm glad I waited for something less expensive than the Ipad and Galaxy. I watched the Archos website closely to get one of these, and still they go so fast that the first time I ordered one they canceled it because they ran out.
