Archos 101 Internet Tablet unboxing

ARCHOS_101_it_ambianceThe Archos 101 is a much anticipated Android tablet. Whilst Samsung occupy the high end of the market with the £500 Galaxy Tab and an endless slew of cheap and nasty tablets invade from every other company looking to make a buck Archos focuses on a mid-range that is going to appeal to the majority.

The 101 is named as such due to it’s huge WXVGA 10.1″ LCD screen. the device boast quite an eye catching spec list including a front facing webcam, Android 2.2 Froyo (not implemented yet), 1ghz processor, 3D openGL, 8 or 16gb on-board storage, video and audio codecs for pretty much everything and a handy kickstand.

Have a look at the extended unboxing below and keep your eye peeled for further video demos in the future. I shall be leaving the review until 2.2 Froyo arrives in the next couple of weeks.
