cheaper, lighter, thinner and better featured
Ive seen a few reviews and the hardware quality seems to be pretty bad. It doesnt even support flash(i might be wrong about this one) and its really slow compared to the iPad.
Its as fast a s an iPad, (that I can see) granted I don't thing the touch screen is as fluid as the Apple.
In terms of build quality I think its OK, the back panel is a bit rough looking I think but I can live with that.
I know its down to how you use these things, but with the Archos, you can plug in 1TB drive and work directly off it, I think that's a big plus.
