Archos 9 PCTablet

 

This slow and touch-unfriendly tablet doesn't hold a candle to the iPad.

The Archos 9 isn’t really a tablet. It’s just a cheaper version of an ultra-mobile PC, a category that died long ago. If you like the idea of owning a tablet that supports Flash and takes advantage of Windows 7's touch capabilities, wait for the HP...

Tablet PC From Archos Is No Competition for iPad

 

One of the first shots in the tablet war has been fired by Archos. Too bad it missed. Hard.

Archos 9 PC Tablet

 

Archos is known for its generally well-received portable media players, such as the Android-powered Archos 5 Internet tablet . The company's 9-inch PC product, called the Archos 9 PC Tablet, features a full Windows 7 OS in an effort to meld the media...

Thin design; solid construction; plenty of storage space.

Terribly slow CPU; no way to easily rotate orientation; frustrating touch controls.

The Archos 9 PC Tablet certainly looks the part of a full-OS iPad competitor, but hardware frustrations make it a tough sell.

Archos 9 PC Tablet – Great looks but extremely sluggish

 

Archos is famous in the market for its PMPs and the manufacturer is trying to replicate this success in other fields too. The Archos 9 PC Tablet is a handheld computing device which has a nine inch screen and comes with Windows 7 OS. This device is...

Archos 9 PC Tablet looks really good for a tablet computer but the novelty will wear off soon. The device is extremely slow even for basic tasks. We think Archos needs to think a bit before they call such devices a Netbook replacement.

ARCHOS 9

 

Do you think of PSPs, cell phones and laptops when someone says portable tech? This UMPC bridges several gaps.

There is little debate that tiny and budget-friendly netbooks are the hot genre in personal computing. Over the last calendar year we have seen an explosion in their popularity and resulting marketplace competition. When it comes to gadgets, what guys...
