Update history


   [Edit 2011/09/30]
According to Archos USA Facebook page, the product delivery schedule has been advanced a little. The “classic” 101 G9 1 GHz should be available in the next days. The 1.2 GHz models at end of October and the 1.5 GHz Turbo version in December, 2011

[Edit 2011/09/21]
1. According to Archos press release from the 20th of September, 2011 (document in French), some changes has been made in the G9 product line. The Turbo machines with 16 Gb Flash or 250 Gb harddisk storage would be released in October, 2011 and limited to 1.2 GHz. An update of the Turbo machines with 16 Gb Flash or 250 Gb harddisk storage running at 1.5 GHz would be released in January, 2012. It’s yet unknown if the Turbo machines running at 1.2 GHz are equipped with a TI OMAP 4460 or TI OMAP 4430. According to our friends at Archoslounge.net, it is very unlikely that the 1.2 GHz machines will be able to get upgraded to run at 1.5 Ghz.

2. Regarding memory installed on the machines, we should expect 512 Mb for the current devices (September/October) as Archos commented on their US Facebook:

CONCERNING RAM FOR G9:
G9 tablets feature 512MB of RAM. But this is combined with special memory management in “Honeycomb”, optimized for 512MB of RAM by ARCHOS software engineers and their 3 years of Android experience.
Because of this we’re able to offer lower memory amounts without sacrificing the usability of “Honeycomb” – this investment that ARCHOS has made in software engineering allows us to pass the savings on RAM to our users, offering the lowest priced “Honeycomb” tablets anywhere.


Archos has attended the IFA , the world’s largest trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances, taking place from 2 to 7 September 2011 in Berlin. Check the both at Hall 17, booth 125.

  1. […]   Yesterday, Google presented the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) operating system together with Samsung showing the Galaxy Nexus (a.k.a Samsung Nexus Prime), first device running Android 4.0 ICS. This major Google Android Operating System update will be unified for Smartphones, Tablets and Google TV, it is a great opportunity for Texas Instruments as the reference design to support the new operating system is powered by a TI OMAP4460 dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor. The same processor that will go in the Archos G9 Turbo expected next month. […]

  2. Je suis du même avis que les autres : c’est un peu du foutage de gueule d’annoncer fièrement en juin que l’on pisse plus loin que les autres, de faire attendre et espérer ses clients plusieurs mois… pour sortir fin septembre une gamme qui n’a pas toutes les spécifications annoncées, seulement 1Ghz, puis peut-être 1.2 Ghz courant octobre… puis de dire qu’il faudra attendre 2012 pour espérer le 1.5 Ghz. Et tout ça avec seulement 512 mb de Ram ? alors que tous les concurrents sont déjà à 1 Go. Franchement Archos, ça serait bien d’apprendre un peu de vos erreurs pour progresser, déjà nous avions attendus très patiemment la Gén 8. Franchement, si vous avez un peu de respect pour vos clients, après un coup pareil, en janvier il faut vraiment sortir des machines en 1.5Ghz et 1Go de Ram. Sinon c’est fini, on n’attendra plus. C’est vraiment très décevant car ça fait plaisir de soutenir une société française, mais pour jouer dans la cour des grands, et bien il faut grandir, arrêter de comparer son jet avec les voisins, et avoir des produits cohérents avec ses annonces de teasing. Allez quoi !!! c’est quand même pas infaisable ? A par ça ce sont de super machines, top connectées, géniales, plein de codecs, bourrées de qualités, accessibles, alors quoi, pourquoi prenez-vous les batons pour vous faire battre ? C’est trop triste, il faut réagir !

    PS : c’est vrai que H Crohas est autoritaire et mégalo ? Quel dommage ! Un patron à l’ancienne donc ? pas confiance en ses équipes ?

  3. Archos ha demostrado no ser una empresa seria. Menuda tomadura de pelo los ipad killers. Me compraré un ipad 2 por 479 euros y esperaré a la siguiente generación de android. Lástima, pero ya se sabe que nadie da duros a 4 pesetas.
    Muy mal archos, hay que ser más serios

  4. Well… F*ck you then, Archos.
    I have waited for months for a G9 with 1.5 GHz – and waited and waited for the end of september…
    And suddenly the best machine is only a 1.2 GHz and if I want a 1.5 GHz I have to wait 4 months more. So what am I supposed to do? What another 4 months and maybe… just maybe I can buy the machine I have been waiting for in 3-4 months already. Should I count on you Archos, when you just have p*ssed on me!
    You know what, Archos? I think you’re not honest!
