Its also not that stable. I'm not a fan. I like the Braille Note or the
Braille Note PK. The PK is a true PDA, it plays all types of media.

Yeh, I agree, I thought the pacmate had a hard drive.
For the price, this device should have no less than 256MB ram, and at least
20GB for a hard drive.

Hi Aman,

Well I stand corrected once again. (smile)

Still, you would think that a unit that is basically a lap top without a
hard disk would come with more memory?

Thanks...rocker

Hi, Rocker.
Actually, the Pacmate has 64 megabytes of main memory and 32 MB of
ROM. The total is 96 megs, not 8. As I said before, though you can expand
this amount to around 8-10 gigabytes, it costs allot when compared to the
Archos units.

It absolutely amazes me that the Pacmate which, I might add, costs 3K for
the base unit only has 8 megs of memory. What a joke!

Way to go Rockbox and the Voice UI....rocker

Hi.
You said
Some one suggested connecting the Archos to a Pack Mate and reading the
files through the PM, why don't you just save them to the PM instead.

Because the PM can take, at most, 8 gigabytes of extra memory at an
extra cost, over and above the PM's price, of $600 or so. The Archos can
hold 20 gigabytes of information at least, and the cost is $200. There's no
comparison of cost to storage space between using files on the PM and using
files on the Archos through the PM.

Folks with the Linux-based Zaurus PDAs have been able to do this. In
particular, the 3000 and 6000 models have USB host and support USB MSD.
