The Archos 101 G9 Turbo Android Tablet offers a 1 GHz processor, capacitive 7" touch screen, front-facing camera and HDMI output capability with 250 GB of storage. But how do those features really work out? Kevin Pereira and Matt Mira take a look on Gadget Pr0n.
What You Need To Know
The Archos 101 G9 Turbo Android Tablet has an awkward design that's a bit short and really wide.
The case is all plastic, including the 10.1" screen.
There are decent ports on the side, including an HDMI port.
There's also a front facing camera, which leaves a lot to be desired.
Our favorite part is the kickstand, which we used all the time watching movies and YouTube videos.
The 1280x800 resolution is pretty comparable to other 10" tablets.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look as good as other options.
We're seeing great technology like in plane switching and super LCD.
This Archos 101 G9 turbo doesn't have any of those; it looks more like a laptop screen from a couple years ago.
Reading text wasn't that bad, but it's just not what we're used to seeing no win the way of pixelation.
Overall, the screen was just okay.
The Archos 101 G9 turbo is one of the few Android tablets that are upgradeable to the Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
As a result, there is a noticeable speed jump.
The dual-core processor inside made everything pretty snappy while browsing the Internet.
There isn't too much Android lag here, which is fairly common.
The tablet can play video at full 1080p without crashing or any hiccups.
The video does look pretty good, which is the strongest feature of the tablet.
There is a 250 GB hard drive, which allows users to store a ton of media.
This tablet would be good for someone who travels a lot because of the hard drive and how many movies you can store on it.
The battery life lasts about 10 hours of general use and about 7 hours of straight video playback.
