Archos 101 G9 Unboxing Video

archos101g9icsArchos have been confusing the market lately by releasing a new version for their current line almost every month. This original version for the Archos 101 G9 weighs in with a Dual Core 1ghz processor, 512mb of RAM and 8gb of storage, Essentially what we are looking at is the original, basic version of their flagship device however over the last six months there has been a number of revisions to the specifications for you to consider.

The Archos 101 comes in four flavours, with roughly three variants of each flavour.

  1. Archos 101 G9 – Dual Core OMAP4, 1ghz, 512mb RAM with the option of storage size. 8/16gb flash or 250gb HDD storage
  2. Archos 101 G9 Turbo – Dual Core, 1.2ghz, 512mb RAM, 8 / 16 / 250gb storage
  3. Archos 101 G9 Turbo 1.5 – Dual Core, 1.5ghz 512mb RAM, 8 / 16 / 250gb storage
  4. Archos 101 G9 Turbo 1.5 – Dual Core, 1.5ghz, 1gb RAM, 8 / 16 / 250gb storage

Quite a lot of choice. Each model weighs in at a different price point however it might be more difficult to find the first options and even then it might be old/unsold stock. There is no 3G/Wi-Fi option as with many other tablets on the market. Instead Archos have given the customer the option to upgrade to 3G later if they so choose buy purchasing a 3G modem USB stick that slips snugly into the USB host port on the back.

The Archos tablet puts video playback first, and always has. Armed with a host of licensed codec’s the Archos will playback any and all major video formats you throw at it. The Archos also has SMB and other network storage streaming features built into it’s native video player to make it just that little bit easier to handle media servers.

It is important to note the unboxing features Android Honeycomb, however the final review will feature Ice Cream Sandwich.
