To test out the camera built in to the Archos 32 Android tablet, we took it for a test run around the CNET office in San Francisco.

In this shot, we're looking out our office window on a sunny day. The colors looks great, but the detail from the VGA resolution camera is fuzzy, even fresh from the package.

Outdoor shot, where we notice that the camera contrast doesn't leave much room between pitch-black shadows, and bright sunlight.

Outdoor shot of the CBS Interactive fountain, which looks abnormally blue-green in this image, but the detail isn't half bad.

Interior shot of the menu at our local sandwich shop, Toaster Oven. Again, the color balance seems to skew a little on the unflattering blue-green end of the spectrum.

Outdoor shot at a local cafe. Nice color, but the contrast blows out from the light on the pink table umbrella.

This outdoor shot is an attempt to photograph the graffiti wall in the lower right corner of the photo. It's tough to make out, due to the contrast, but the color looks good overall.

Shot of a vintage cycle in a pub window. Nice color and contrast here, but the resolution detail doesn't offer much.

This skyline shot shows off some good color and contrast, and the blue gradient of the sky is surprisingly smooth.

A shot of a local sculpture of colorful pixel people. The Archos 32 seems best suited to outdoor shots like this but still suffers from a general fuzziness when it comes to details.
