Security for virtualized datacentres

New gear resolution

Media file support and management is identical to the 43, so rather than repeat myself let me just say you can play most video, audio and image files known to civilised man, with video resolutions supported up to 720p. You can find exact details of codec and file on Archos' web site. Like the 43, the 101 is a fine media player.

The gaming experience isn't bad either

Out of the box the 101 lacks both Google account sign-in and the Android Market. However, an installer has already been cooked up by some bright spark over at Archos Fans, which gives you full sign-in access to your Google account, Google apps and the Market, including paid-for applications like the full Documents To Go. Download Flash 10.1 from the Market and BBC's iPlayer will run at full screen in a web browser without a hitch.
