Default Archos Android Tablets Now Have A Real Marketplace

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/12/new-archos-tablets-get-android-marketplace-hack-works-as-promis/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/12/...orks-as-promis/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Our biggest complaint about the variety of Archos tablets? The lack of the Android Market, of course. But while you've been able to sideload the Market apk on lots of these devices, there were apparently compatibility issues with Archos' new Android 2.1 / 2.2 tablets (like the Archos 32 we reviewed just a few weeks). But fear not: ArchosFans to the rescue!"</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1287070772.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>There may be a huge range of Android tablets and phones out there right now, but a depressing amount of them have been castrated by the lack of access to the Android Market.&nbsp; Some companies have tried are are trying to go their own way, such as Archos, Verizon, etc.&nbsp; However, those attempts find a much more limited selection of tools and toys.&nbsp; Part of what has made the iPhone the success that it is now is the app store.&nbsp; A simple, central location to get new programs and games and a fart app for any occasion.&nbsp; Without the Market, I find any Android device a lot less compelling to own.&nbsp; How about you?&nbsp; Is access to the Android Market a consideration when you get an Android based phone or tablet?</p>

I agree - I really want an Android tablet, but not without the ability to (easily) add the fart apps (and of course, useful stuff).
