Archos 101

The Archos 101 is the 10-inch tablet Android needed in 2010. Thin, light, and affordably priced at $299 (8GB) and $399 (16GB), the Archos 101 is the first decent presentation of Android 2.2 we've seen on an iPad-size screen.

Archos 101

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.

A kickstand is also included, located on the back. The stand folds out from the middle, far enough to prop up the tablet at a 30-degree angle, which helps with touch-screen typing, but can also be used to keep the tablet upright for videos or a photo slideshow.

Archos 101

The first thing we noticed about the Archos 101 is how light it is. At around 16 ounces, it weighs about as much as a pint of beer and is noticeably lighter than the iPad. How Archos was able to achieve this light weight is no mystery, though. Instead of the aluminum-and-glass construction of the iPad, the Archos design is mostly plastic and bends under pressure. Granted, tablets are fairly fragile devices inherently, but the 101 wins no points for ruggedness.
