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?
