First Look: Archos 101 G9 (250GB) gets Turbo-fied.

1:13 /

Although it runs the latest Android OS (Ice Cream Sandwich) and has a marginally improved dual-core processor, the Archos 101 G9 Turbo version isn't worth its trouble and price.

Hello everybody. I'm Lynn here at CNET bringing you guys a tablet this time and it's called the Archos 101 G9 Turbo version. Now, you might have already seen this review the Archos 101 before but this version has a 250 gigabyte hard drive memory capacity. With it's 10.1-inch screen and 1280x800 resolution, you could watch full 1080p HD video. You can also record 720p video with it's front facing camera. Unfortunately, there is no rear facing camera. In addition for all you Endure lovers out there who are done with Honeycomb and Gingerbread, fear not. The Archos Tablet is upgradable over the air to Ice Cream Sandwich. On the back of this wifi-enabled device, there's also a port here for an optional 3G network fix. There's also a (niffy?) if not little (slimsy?) kick-stand on the back so you could pop up your tablet for easy viewing. Powering this all is a Texas Instruments OMAP4 Dual Core Processor available from 1.2 to 1.5 Gigahertz. If you're interested the tablet is available online for purchase for $390. Again, I'm Lynn from CNET bringing you guys the Archos 101 G9 Turbo version.
