    Hey everybody. I got my android phone (moto droid) a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that I love the android os. It's intuitive enough that I can always find what I want, but techy enough that I don't feel limited or chained to somebody else's idea of what I should be doing *cough* apple *cough*

    Anyway, I am one of those people that hordes media files like mad and wants everything on my person all the time. My current media player is an archos 5 with 250gig capacity, this is a pre-andriod unit. If any of you know Archos, you know their customer care and reliability have issues, and I was wondering if any of you know of a similer existing or upcoming product sporting the android OS that will give me the same storage capacity and feature set (playing every file, ever, huge screen, etc) as the Archos.

    THanks,

    There is an Acer laptop out or out soon, that you can dual boot with Android. If I remember right it had a 250g hard drive.

    Hope that helps.

    The "Archos 5 Internet Tablet"
    aka Archos 5 Android has android 1.5 and a crappy archos overlay

    note: do not confuse with "Archos Internet Media Tablet" because this one is newer

    Don't let that negative post of the Archos fool you. The android version has been bumped up, and the user community (archosfans.com) seems to be very satisfied with it now after a number of firmware updates.

    It does still dual-boot android and an archos os, but really that isn't necessarily something to complain about, the media player portion of the device can play virtually any format under the sun, in HD.

    I have been looking for android media players for a while (since I got my droid and fell in love with the OS), but there simply isn't anything else out there running android besides the archos.
