New Android v3.0 Honeycomb Tablets launched by Archos
Archos has been manufacturing “value for money” tablet pcs for about 2 years now. Archos tablets are priced very competitively, that’s what is going well for them. In terms of hardware Archos tablet have almost everything a user would want in a tablet and still they are priced much cheaper as compared to other Android tablet pcs from, let say, Motorola and Samsung.
At IFA, Archos unveiled two new android tablet pcs, an 8.0 incher 80 G9 and a 10.1 incher 101 G9. Both these tablets have pretty good technical specifications and run on Android v3.0 Honeycomb that offers better architecture and better UI over Android v2.2 Froyo.
Google is planning to release the latest version of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich soon which would provide developers “one size fits all” sort of an operating system. ICS could be modified to run on Smartphone as well as Tablet PCs nicely.
Technical Specifications and Key Features of Archos Tablets
- 1.5GHz Dual Core Processor
- Android v2.3 Honeycomb operating system
- Kick-stand to enjoy videos and movies
- Inbuilt Custom 3G Modem that can be used with a regular 3G SIM
- Internal Storage that can be upgraded up to 250GB HDD
To me, upgrading from a flash storage to a HDD storage isn’t a very good option. I need my apps and games to load quickly and that is only possible with a flash storage. So, even if the storage capacity in flash storage is less, I would prefer to go with it.
