Galaxy Tab 10.1 vs Archos 101 Gen 9

You can not say that Archos does not try. They have got a powerful CPU in their latest generation of Android tablets, but they ruin it with subpar hardware all around.

The Archos 101 G9 is spectacular on paper, just like the previous generations. There is a reason that they do not take off though – poor quality. I would rather pay $500 for a high quality product than $350 for a poor quality one.

Would you consider buying an Archos 101 Gen 9?

    Based on that information, I’d rather have the Archos 101!

    This is a bit biased of course… Since you’re a galaxy tab website owner… Not trusting this

    I have the SGS 2 for camera, 3g and gps needs…… for me the Archos is looking rather tempting. Still struggle to get the old Sammy 7″ tab for the price.

    Also since when has the 1.5 GHz Archos been out since September 2011?  Even Archos are saying it isn’t out til beginning of or early 2012!
