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 101 XS Review


At $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 some issues that...

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

Archos 101 XS review


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

Archos pulls out all the stops to rekindle its reputation

The Archos 101 XS prices itself out despite a full keyboard and good performance


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.

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

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...

This device presents a rather interesting - and certainly unique - offering to the Android tablet universe. Compared to the ASUS Transformer Prime with keyboard dock , this device doesn't quite seem as high quality a final product - but it's a lot less...

Archos 101 XS Review: Too Many Compromises In A Suddenly Competitive Budget Market


"Unique" is the name of the game with the Archos 101 XS. Just about every design decision goes against the status quo. Most tablets are made out of aluminum or plastic, but Archos went with stainless steel and a plastic rim. It's a tablet-laptop...

With their new tablet Archos aim to take a chunk of the productivity tablet market with a device aimed very much at those interested in the Transformer Pad... so with several generations of tablet development behind them and a lower RRP than ASUS, can...

The Archos 101 XS is a solid though not exceptional tablet which does benefit from a stock Android experience. It has decent media capabilities and can offer gaming performance up there with some of the best however a multitude of minor design/quality...
