Anonymous, 01 Sep 2017I was about to say the same...thank you. You can add that Smart or Toyota Yaris are built in ... moreWell, yes do consider Taiwan part of China, Kuomintang leaded by "Generalissimo" Chiang Kai-shek lost the civil war and retreated to the island hoping that USA and other European colonial empires joined them on the "liberation" of mainland, things didn't come easy, but I am sure one day they will reach a fair agreement. BTW, don't forget the majority of Toyota diesel engines are made in Poland, not to mention that part of Volkswagen line is made here in Portugal... and biggest factory of VW/Porsche group SUV's is made next to my own office in Bratislava, capital of Slovakia :) !!! Must be terrible (for certain minds...) to buy a Porsche Cayenne or Macan...made in Slovakia!
visconderoberto, 01 Sep 2017Well, by German cars you mean BMW X models shipped from Shanghai? Or by Mercedes and Smart wit... moreI was about to say the same...thank you.
You can add that Smart or Toyota Yaris are built in France...;-)
About Huawei's engine...it depend if you consider Taiwan as a part of China...
Kirin are designed by Huawei (with several licences from ARM) but built by TSMC. ;-)
Well, by German cars you mean BMW X models shipped from Shanghai? Or by Mercedes and Smart with Dacia engines, that are based on old Renault engines cast in Turkey and assembled in Romania? Thank God you never heard about Range Rover's or Jaguar's...as they are intended for Gentlemen ;) I shall wait for new Huawei, at least is proudly Chinese, including the engine....sorry, processor!
AnonD-510098, 30 Aug 2017The french really cant make anything.. their cars are crap and so are their smartphonesCar of the year 2017 : Peugeot 3008 (European jury from different countries)
And for supercars, do you know that Bugatti Chiron (and previous model : Veyron) is made in France?
About Archos : now that's chinese devices rebranding...not very interessant...
But many years ago, they released great products such as mp3 player with Archos Jukebox before Apple released the first iPod...
They released a tablet in 2009, once more one year before released the first iPad
Nice, plastic phone with 13mp, but FWVGA on 5.5? Does it have removable battery?
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2017The iPod touch has a beasty A8 SoCI guess you have no clue, maybe you are 5 yrs old when Archos released the most advanced pmp player in the world in 2007. Yeah right A8 in 2007, do research before spit out nonsense comments.
The french really cant make anything.. their cars are crap and so are their smartphones
Archos Diamond Tab is the only more or less interesting from the bunch.
But I guess a used ipad air 2 is still a better buy for the price.
Not sure how Archos went from front-page news back in the early days, to obscurity.
Guess they failed to spur much success in Europe back in 2010, even though they were poised to make an effect, they skipped the Indian and Chinese market which had several major booms.
Wow archos still alive? Back in a day, archos has some of the best pmp players. Their archos 5 can easily out shined the iPod touch with humongous 4.8" screen and full page internet browser.
