Archos 101 G9 Android tablet – the new champion in performance and storage space – user review
4 July 2011
Conclusion: Thanks to all of these features, I think the 101 G9 will also be a great purchase for those who want to be able to work on the go and keep all their data always with them, especially when the price will be about $400 – that’s cheaper than the lower-specced iPad 2!
Excerpt: Archos 101 Internet Tablet is 10.1-inch Android-powered device with Wi-Fi connectivity. Specs wise, it sports a 1GHz processor, VGA front-facing camera, HDMI port, 8GB of internal memory which can be further expanded with microSD cards.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: The Archos 101 tablet's price is right and the screen is ample, but the experience is outdated and performance is sluggish.
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Summary: 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 can really expect at a current price of 280.
Pros: 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 usable range of functions.
Cons: 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
Summary: Among 10-inch Android tablets, the Archos 101 is the slimmest, most solid, and, at $299 ($349 for the 16GB version), the best value thus far. However, that doesn't mean we don't have reservations. For such a large screen, the viewing angles are too narrow.
Summary: The space-age styled Gen 10 is bravely gunning for the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 's title of best hybrid tablet in the world. A tall order, but its super-thin 8mm form, skinny magnetic keyboard and positively lean price of just £300 are a good start.
