The new Archos 101 G9: Is it Turbo-worthy?

In the increasingly competitive tablet industry, Archos bumped up some of the specs for its 101 G9 device.

You might recognize the Wi-Fi-enabled Archos 101 G9 from our previous review, but it's back and it's been "Turbo-fied." At least, that's what the manufacturer has tacked on now that the tablet's dual-core processor has been bumped up from 1GHz to 1.5GHz.

The device also has more storage space, touting a 250GB hard drive. And for all you Android lovers who are tired and done with Honeycomb and Gingerbread, fear not. The device features another noteworthy upgrade in the form of Ice Cream Sandwich.

If you're curious to see what else is new (or isn't), check out the review and see why we think its new moniker of "Turbo" doesn't quite fit the bill.
