Archos: Neues Firmware Update für Gen8

Archos hat ein neues Firmware Update für seine Gen8 Tablet Reihe in Umlauf gebracht. Dieses Update ist per OTA verfügbar und bringt einige Neuerungen unf Fixes mit sich.

So bekommen die Android basierten Tablets (101, 70, 43, 32 und 28), durch das kostenfreie Update (v. 2.3.20) zum Beispieml eine neue Youtube App und die vielversprechende Archos Remote Control. Mit letzterer ist es möglich, ein anderes Android Gerät, beispielsweise das Smartphone zu benutzen, um das Archos Internet Tablet fernzusteuern. Dies ist zum Beispiel sehr interessant, wenn das Tablet mit dem Fernseher verbunden wurde, um dort HD Inhalte zu genießen. Die Serverapplikation hierzu befindet sich ab dem neuen Update bereits auf dem Archos Tablet, während man sich die Steuerungs-App händisch aus dem Google Market laden muss.

Das volle Changelog haben wir nach dem Break für euch!
