Archos A101 G9 10.1" Dual core Android Tablet + 2A usb travel charger £100.16 @ pixmania

Found 25th Oct 2012
Earlier today this tab was on Pixmania for £79.12+£8 postage.
It disappeared before I could buy it but is still available as a bundle with an international usb charger ( usual price £16) for 92.16 + £8 postage.
This was hot at Tesco a couple of weeks ago for £115. so this is a cracking deal I know it is last gen processor but there is an ICS upgrade and dual core ICS 10/1 inch tabs with HDMI and micro SD from reputable makers just don't come this cheap. It can even be converted to 3G with an accessory. A friend has one and its not the sleekest tab on the market but its good for the money

only thing lacking here is the viewing angles but for the money its well worth it. btw it has a capacative screen that is not listed in the spec.

How muxh RAM is in this?
More thorough review from Techradar this time last year: techradar.com/rev…iew

"Potentially more interesting is the 250GB additional memory on the Archos 101 G9, which uses a traditional hard drive." - anyone able to validate this?

In short:

For

Tempting price
Full Android 3.2 Honeycomb support
Great for video playback
Good battery life

Against

Plasticy chassis
Budget screen
Awful camera
Uninspired performance
Pixmania... awful, awful company, buy from these at your peril.
@makershaker - Listing states 8GB. Seems there was to be a 16GB at the start of 2012 - worth checking Google.

just so you know your link to a review is to the slightly more powerful turbo version that has a 1.5GHz processor vs the 1Ghz in this one. both are dual core
As said, if this goes faulty, you may as well throw it in the bin, Pixmania are a truely awful company...
I bought the Turbo version of this from HMV. Absolute piece of crap. Touch screen was all over the place. Looked on the deal thread, another guy had exact same problem as me. If you search, you will find its a VERY common fault with them...

I would avoid, even at this price.

Don't confuse ram with on-board memory. It has 512Meg. For this price it is a bargain- just hope you don’t get one of the duds! I was so close to buying one but the Turbo model I tried in HMV would switch off with a small amount of pressure on the back. A bit shoddy quality control but…get a good one then they are a bargain!
PS i think it has gone again unless anyone can find it?
Waste of money, you're better off with an Ainol one , ok it's only 7" but it works. Archos tablets are by far the worst I've used, avoid.
If it was the newer 4460 1mb 1.5Hz version maybe, but not the older version.

I wonder what their new 4470 based tablet is like?
Archos make rubbish tablets
People are spouting some utter rubbish.

It has good viewing angles and any criticism was coming from a £300 price point,
Indoors its certainly nearly always preferable to small 7" tablets.
And if 465 gram it is the lightest and most portable large screen one available.
Add obviously demo ones have not run the works fine after touch screen calibration facility.

Rather stupid of the store but but quite obvious to many of us here.
