Among the various announcements, tucked away near the bottom, is the revelation that it will be introducing a "selection of smartwatches" for 2014, which will start at under £50 (roughtly $82 U.S.).

    Review: The Archos Gen10 101 XS Android Tablet

    Short Version: Want the Microsoft Surface without the Microsoft? Archos may have the device for you. This unique tablet/keyboard combo turns itself from traditional slate into an Android-powered ultralight in a few simple steps. Best of all, it's going to get Jelly Bean in Q4 2012 so your investment, at least for a few months, will be sound. The cons? It's a little chintzy, a little… Read More

    Archos G9 Tablets To Taste Ice Cream Sandwich Early Next Year (Video)

    I wouldn't be shocked to hear that you had perhaps forgotten about the Archos G9 tablets. They haven't seen much coverage of late, though we did get our hands on one back in October. In our review we found them to be fun but ugly, with various ports and a somewhat untrustworthy build quality, though solid enough for casual use. But the 8- and 10-inch G9 slates may be due for a refresh, which… Read More

  • Archos 80 G9 Tablet Review: Fun But Ugly

    Archos 80 G9 Tablet Review: Fun But Ugly

    Short Version: The Archos 80 G9 tablet isn't necessarily something I'd recommend for the hardcore tablet enthusiast, but it certainly gets the job done. Powered by pure Android 3.2 Honeycomb, the tab offers everything you'd expect out of Android and a nice variety of ports, albeit with a somewhat rough build-quality. Read More

    Archos Q9 Tablet Is A Beefy, Honeycomb-Running Machine

    The Archos G9 tablet comes in two flavors, 8-inch and 10-inch, and runs Honeycomb 3.2. The specs are more than acceptable with the 8-incher starting at $299 for 1 GHz of power and $100 more for a half a GHz extra. The tablets have internal flash memory of up to 16GB or a 250GB hard drive, your choice. Read More

    Meet Philly’s New Android-Powered Newspaper: The Arnova 10 G2

    The Philadelphia Media Network has had an ambitious summer: in July, the company announced their intention to sell subsidized Android tablets with subscriptions to the digital editions of Philly's two daily papers. August was presumably spent sourcing hardware and working on the apps, and now that summer is over, PMN is ready to reveal the fruits of their labor. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: $79 7-inch Archos Android Tablet

    CrunchDeals: $79 7-inch Archos Android Tablet

    John riled up the Internet the other day by stating buying Archos’ latest, low-cost tablet is like buying cut-rate toilet paper. I get that and fully agree. Howover, some people have more of a tolerance for crapgadgets than others and if that’s you, head over to Woot and snag this $80 7-inch Android tablet. It’s 2010′s model running on Android 1.6 but comes with a modest… Read More

  • Archos Releases $99 Android Tablet, I Release Bile

    Archos Releases $99 Android Tablet, I Release Bile

    This $99 Archos tablet runs Froyo and has a 7-inch 800 x 480 pixel resistive touchscreen and 4 amazing GB of storage. No mention of processor but I suspect a few TI-81s have sacrificed their lives to be part of this mess. Read More

  • Xoom Too Expensive? Try These 5 Inexpensive Android Tablets Instead

    Xoom Too Expensive? Try These 5 Inexpensive Android Tablets Instead

    The comments on yesterday’s post concerning the Xoom’s bungled launch stated loud and clear that people want inexpensive Android tablets — or at least that the high MSRP was the Xoom’s undoing. The thought is that if you’re going to spend over $500 on a tablet, the iPad is the only choice, which therefore makes the $800 Xoom a no-sale. I sort of agree with that even… Read More

    The Archos Arnova 10 Trades High Amounts Of Memory For A Lower Price

    Archos quietly became the favorite low-cost Android tablet maker of fanboys everywhere thanks to a solid 2010 offering. The company’s Arnova brand builds upon the same formula with even cheaper tablets. The secret sauce? The bare minimum amount of internal memory. But buyers might overlook that little detail especially with the Arnova 10 shipping for only $180. Read More
