Archos 101 G9 Turbo Tablet - 10.1" 16gb @ Ballicom International (£175.68 Del)

Found 9th Aug 2012
I was looking for a good spec 10" tablet and decided on this. Price is incl 7 day delivery or you can have it for £172.69 if you pick up from store (Coventry). Other speedy options are available at a price. Also available through a number of sellers on Amazon for around £186 if you prefer.

Note: 21 in stock at this time.

Not used Ballicom before but get good reviews so taking the chance. Note - price seems to fluctuate daily (I have watched for 4 days and this is cheapest). Please don't just vote cold if price is different when you look, just try over a few days.

The tablet has hdmi out and an sd card slot (the lack of which put me off the 7" Nexus as well as wanting something bigger). A dual core 1.5ghz processor makes this model (502052) more powerful than the non turbo version. Also note - no rear camera!

It has full Play Store access for apps and a kick stand built in (great for my wife who wants to use it in the kitchen for recipes) and free upgrade to android 4 (ice cream sandwich).

Other than the fact its 10", I don't see anything to get excited about here.

Real shame its archos too.


Besides 102, it has 3G.

"3G ready: always stay connected
Because you shouldn't be forced to choose between a 3G and a Wi-Fi tablet at purchase, Archos have developed the Archos G9 3G stick; a standard USB 3G stick that accepts any Sim card that works on any PC as well as on your Archos 101 G9."


I am not quite sure whether it is built-in or need external dongle.
Need the dongle to get 3G - slides into the case. Nice that you can upgrade from WiFI to 3G later rather deciding/paying upfront.
I've got its little brother (8") and pretty happy. Not as fast as a Google Nexus but Android 4, HDMI output and an SD card slot!

Yeh with 8gb. This is 16gb
And the CFW deal is the non turbo 1ghz model. Not a useful comparison.

I understand the excited comment but Dual Core 1.5ghz processor with performance claims of up to 50% greater performance than Tegra 2 driven tablets with the 10 inch screen for less than £200. I am mildly appreciative X) Good reviews but downside could be a bit plasticky in terms of build. I will soon find out!
