Archos 101 XS Review


We were glad to see that the Archos 101 XS did live up to our expectations of being thin and affordable and was pretty much exactly how it looked in the video presentation I saw during the press conference held [...]

The Archos 101 XS offers good bang for the buck and does not sacrifice the look for the price.In fact, it is the most stylish 10-inch tablet under $400 we have seen. The tablet+keyboard combo offers one of the best solution for mobile productivity in...

Archos 101XS


Given the myriad high-quality tablet choices out there, I've found it difficult to recommend previous Archos tablets .

The Archos 101 XS includes a full QWERTY keyboard, memory expansion, Mini-HDMI, and great games performance.

The tablet never feels like it's safely attached to the keyboard, and unless you have small hands, typing on the keyboard feels cramped. The tablet also features shoddy build quality and at $400 is too expensive for what's offered.

The Archos 101 XS makes performance improvements from the previous generation and includes a full keyboard, but doesn't offer enough to warrant its high price.

Let's just call it like it is: Archos doesn't have a history of making good tablets. I have fond memories of my Jukebox MP3 player from years ago, but more recently the company's produced a slew of tablets that just didn't measure up.

Good-looking design ; Coverboard is handy, and included ; Price is right

Significant build quality issues ; Gets really dirty and scuffed ; Strange software and performance quirks

A leap forward for Archos, but not for the tablet market

The 10-inch Archos 101 XS Android tablet offers snappy performance and comes with a keyboard for an affordable price, but its design could be better.

Good overall performance; Display has wide viewing angles; Keyboard included; HDMI and microSD ports

Awkward docking mechanism; Poorly placed webcam; Tinny audio; Cramped keyboard layout

Click to EnlargeAt $399, it's nice that Archos is essentially adding a keyboard for the same price as a 10-inch Android tablet alone. This device also offers good performance and a sleeker design than previous Archos tablets. However, this slate has...

Archos 101 XS review: a tablet that puts the keyboard center stage


More Info Archos outs G10 xs tablet line, readies Transformer Prime contenders Archos teases G10 xs with first press shot, vows launch in

Innovative design ; Keyboard included at $400

Cramped keyboard ; Short battery life ; Cheap build quality

The $400 Archos 101 XS includes a keyboard dock built into the tablet's cover, but this innovative feature doesn't amount to a good typing experience.

Archos 101 XS Review


This week we've got our hands on the Archos 101 XS tablet (part of the G10 series) with included keyboard dock, featuring a dual-core OMAP 4470 processor and a 10.1-inch display as well as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This tablet brings on a nearly...

It's always nice to have options. Not so long ago, if you wanted a tablet with a travel-friendly keyboard dock, you could opt for an Apple iPad and one of the many third-party cases with built-in keys (Apple's own keyboard dock isn't notably portable),...

Impressive benchmark performance ; Keyboard dock, included in price, also works as a hard cover ; Loud speakers ; Good port selection ; Pleasingly slim

Pricey given current competition ; Weak battery life ; Keyboard dock feels flimsy ; No rear camera

A speedy Android tablet with a spiffy bundled keyboard that doubles as a screen cover, the 101 XS is slim and light—but a bit too pricey.

With the introduction of its brand new Gen10 XS line, Archos is reminding the world today that the Android tablet market is not limited to a couple of high roller manufacturers. It's latest fl...

The 101 XS is a nice step up from Archos G9 series, and its budget friendly price gets you a lot of hardware for your buck. The Coverboard is a unique idea and it's great that Archos is including it in the $399 pricetag, but at this time you'll be hard...

Today Archos announced their brand new keyboard rocking Android tablet to the world previously teased as the Archos G10. This new 10-inch tablet will be known as the Archos 101 XS and lucky for us we already have one. Complete with what Archos calls a...

Archos has certainly brought a new approach to the world of Android tablets when you consider the included coverboard keyboard. That aside this is a pretty generic budget tablet. The price could be lower, but considering you get 16GB of internal...

Tranformer Prime rival arrives but can it compete?

Native Android ; Nippy processor ; Keyboard dock ; Affordable price

Average display ; Terrible sound ; Poor build quality ; Ugly design
