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


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...

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 Archos 101 XS Review: Prettier, Faster, So Much Better


When Apple and Samsung were just in the planning stages of their respective tablets, Archos was already knee deep in it. Android was still just an idea Andy Rubin hadn't quite fully fleshed out, when Archos introduced the Archos 5, a 3G equipped...

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


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: 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...

Archos 101 XS review


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...
