From time to time I get the urge to use Bing to find new images of writer Derek Raymond. Because, unlike Google, Bing does not disappoint.
Tonight Bing outdid itself.
This video is in German but the images don’t require translation.
He previously compared it to the Nexus 7. In that video he had some touch problems in the browser, but not in Maps. This time he had trouble in Maps. Again he mentions a software update to fix that.
It’s clear he favors the iPad Mini at the end. But I’m still impressed by the Archos 80 Titanium in these videos.
After the break, two more videos with benchmarks of the Archos 80 Titanium.
Carphone Warehouse was the first retailer to put the Archos 80 Titanium on sale. They also got, exclusively, a model with 16GBs of internal storage.
An Amazon Phone makes sense only if Amazon intends to offer cellular service too, as an MVNO. Which is something both Apple and Google looked at but decided not to do.
Amazon could probably pull it off, given how they have actual customers — which Apple didn’t have pre-iPhone and which Google still doesn’t have.
Why a phone? Why not? It’s another way for Amazon to sell stuff to people. That’s why.
