Archos 80 G9


Archos debuts Arnova 9 G2 Android tablet, offers Gingerbread on a 9.7-inch IPS displayNokia to release Windows 8 tablets this June, top drawer Lumia in the works?Velocity Micro Cruz T410 Gingerbread tablet will run you a penny under $300As far as...

Built-in kickstand ; Full-sized USB port ; Long battery life for a tablet this size ; Excellent value

Other Android tablets feel snappier ; No rear-facing camera

How many other $300 tablets run Android 3.2 and come with a kickstand and full-sized USB port? Try as you might, you'll be hard-pressed to get as much bang for your three hundred bucks.

Archos 70 and 101 Internet Tablet review


We've seen our fair share of budget tablets from the Augens, Cobys, and Viewsonics of the world over the last six months, but let's not forget that

Very thin design with built-in kickstand ; USB and mini-HDMI ports ; Over seven hours of battery life

Discolored screen with poor viewing angles ; Performance can be sluggish at times ; Flimsy build

Archos 101 G9 (250GB)


Product not yet reviewed by PCMag editors.

Performance was solid, but not noticeably different than its competitors, and some bugs marred the overall experience. Keep an eye on Archos' Web site, as the company has been pumping out firmware updates for the 101 G9 on a steady basis.

Archos 101 G9


The Archos 101 G9 gives you a 10.1-inch Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) tablet at a good price, but it doesn't stand out.

Smooth 1080p video playback. Includes an HDMI port and a kickstand. Archos-specific music and video player apps work well.

Pedestrian design. Poor battery life. Still buggy, even with latest firmware update.

Android Market for Honeycomb still suffers from a major lack of optimized apps. Many apps you download will display distorted or blown-up phone versions that were clearly never designed for 10-inch screens. This remains the single largest barrier for...

Archos 101 G9 (10.1-inch) review


Editor's note: As of April 2012, the Archos 101G is upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). For details on the advantages ICS offers over Honeycomb, check the Ice Cream Sandwich section of the Asus Transformer Prime TF201 review.

The Archos 101 G9 (8GB) runs 1080p video smoothly and has a good-quality screen, and its kickstand is a useful addition.

The tablet is too large for what it offers and has awkward button placement. Also, its single camera had poor recording quality.

The Archos 101 G9 (8GB) delivers a complete Android experience, but its rough design, low-quality camera, and awkward button placement make it feel rushed to market.

Archos 101 review


The Archos 101 is the 10-inch tablet Android needed in 2010. Thin, light, and affordably priced at $299 (8GB) and $399 (16GB), the Archos 101 is the first decent presentation of Android 2.2 we've seen on an iPad-size screen.

The Archos 101 is one of few Android 2.2 tablets with a large 10.1-inch screen. Extras such as a front-facing camera, Mini-HDMI output, USB host and sync ports, and microSD memory expansion are impressive considering the tablet's low price.

Charging requires wall adapter, screen quality and responsiveness are mediocre; onscreen keyboard is awkward; not fully compatible with Adobe Flash; lacks support for Android Market and Google Mobile apps, such as Maps, Navigation, Contacts, and Calendar.

The Archos 101 tablet's price is right and the screen is ample, but the experience is outdated and performance is sluggish.

Review Archos 101 Tablet/MID


Bargain tablet? In addition to a plethora of tablets in various sizes, Archos also offers a model in the popular 10" format with the 101. A light and slim case is just as attractive as the HDMI and USB 2.0 equipment features. We looked into what one...

light and slim, reasonably priced, HDMI, USB 2.0 + mini USB, long battery runtimes, silent operation, hardly noticeable warming of the case, Android 2.2, very small and light power pack, Very light, very reasonably-priced, well equipped and a very...

Poor case stability, Very angle-dependent display with only adequate brightness and limited contrast, no access to Google's Android Marketplace..., ...and thus marginal app-availability, low rated 8 GB flash memory, no UMTS available

Archos 101 G9 Turbo review


Archos has always had a focus on video-optimized and flexible hardware, since long before their “tablets” started shipping with Android. With the current generation of mobile hardware, they can add even more media prowess to their utilitarian designs –...

Archos tablets are strange beasts, cousins to the ASUS Transformer tablets in their focus on capability over style. They’re also cheaper, though not by much in the case of the 101 G9 Turbo. The component upgrades are enough to make it worth the extra...
