Archos G9

Archos G9 tablets receiving another firmware update

The recently released Archos G9 tablets have only been on the market a short period and they are already receiving a few firmware updates from Archos. It's nice to see them working so quickly to bring updates to their tablets and we can only hope the same applies for Ice Cream Sandwich. The Archos 80 G9 went on sale last month and received its first OTA firmware update early this month. Today Archos informed us another just 14 days later is available now for download.

Archos 80 G9 tablet rooted, still a work in progress

The new Archos G9 series tablets haven't been out long, but as usual the developer community is already working hard at figuring out the goods and bringing a root method for all. The popular @PaulOBrien has been hard at work with the new Archos 80 G9 Honeycomb tablet and has finally achieved root access. He does however mention that it was not an easy task and it is still a work in progress before any sort of details and instructions will be released. Progress is progress though right?

Archos G9 101 Tablet shown off on video, Has great viewing angles [video]

If you are all as excited as us about the Android Honeycomb tablets coming from Archos this video should make you drool. For those that remember the last tablets they released the viewing angles were terrible and probably the biggest con the devices had. I personally sold mine because the viewing angles just weren't up to par for day to day use. It looks like Archos went back to the drawing board and these new G9 tablets are looking better and better.
