On the left side bezel is a front-facing camera and on the opposite bezel is a 2.5-inch-long speaker aligned vertically. The included power adapter plugs into either the Micro-USB port on the slate or the coverboard. Unfortunately, the cable doesn't lock into the port and easily falls out if touched or if the tablet is moved just a little. When swiping your finger across the screen, a metal edge can be felt where the screen meets the bezel. While I doubt you'd be in danger of injuring yourself while swiping, it's an annoyance that points to an overall build-quality issue that Archos tablets can't seem to shake. A metal plate covers most of the back of the tablet, but thanks to the shoddiness of its implementation (you can easily get a fingernail under the plate and lift it up a bit), it feels less like a well-thought-out addition and more like a last-minute tack-on.

The coverboardTo connect the tablet to the coverboard, lay the coverboard down flat, flip up its built-in stand, line up the small metal plates on the bottom of uag plyo iphone xs max tough protective case - ash reviews the tablet to the magnets on the coverboard's surface, and attach the slate horizontally to the coverboard so that it leans slightly back against the stand, I don't mean to make it sound complicated; it's actually a very simple procedure, So, how strongly is it attached? Well, as long as both pieces are securely connected, you can pick up the tablet and the coverboard will remain attached to it (as long as you aren't jerking it around)..

The flip side, however, is a different story. Since the tablet only leans against the stand and isn't held together by the strongest magnets in the world, tilt it forward just a little and the slate detaches, falling to whatever fate awaits it. This can be a problem when attempting to balance it on your lap as well. Unless you prefer large cracks in your tablet's screen, it's best to use the combo on a flat, stable surface. If Archos had included some type of locking mechanism, even if optional, the tablet could have proved a much more versatile device.

The coverboard itself is smaller than the $150 keyboard/dock attachment for the Asus Transformer line, and feels more cramped as a result, Also, while the Transformer dock includes a touch pad, mouse buttons, a panel to rest your uag plyo iphone xs max tough protective case - ash reviews palms, a full-size USB input, full-size SD card slot, and a built-in battery, the coverboard includes only a Micro-USB connection in the back for charging, The lack of a touch pad was probably the most noticeable omission, as having to tap the screen to open links or make selections feels awkward, Thankfully, Archos took at least one page from Asus' Transformer book of success, by including shortcut keys like back, home, search, a Wi-fi on-off toggle, and brightness, among others..

As I indicated, typing on the coverboard feels cramped compared with on the Transformer board because of the limited space and lack of a palm rest. That being said, I have large hands; according to some CNET-ers with smaller appendages, typing on the coverboard didn't feel cramped at all. One thing we did agree on, though, was that the coverboard keys don't achieve the same high level of tactile response the Transformer's keys do. They're just a bit too soft and don't depress as satisfyingly. The coverboard is a thoughtful addition held back by the lack of a secure attachment mechanism and a touch pad. Also, a larger typing space would have made this more appealing to those of us with larger hands.
