"Excellent Hardware, Hassle to root"2.5 starson by rocwoof
Pros: Thin and light.
Kickstand built in.
Cons: Only available root method (some months ago when I had) was from very secretive guy/group, and raised serious questions about safety (security wise) and reliability.
Could not tether it with my cell phone.
Summary: The cons I listed above with the price I paid CompUSA then (about $300) made it unjustifiable for me to keep. Maybe those issues can be resolved now, but I moved on...
BTW, the lowball prices listed here by CNET are for the reader version, the 70C, which is a much different device from the original 70 (or seven-oh as Archos labels it).
