Hi there

I have been thinking of getting myself a tablet for Christmas as a present for myself.  I had a friends 10.1b for a week, which I loved until it went into melt down getting stuck in an OS loop and had to be taken back to the shop.  Nevertheless that hasnt put me off!

 

PC World are now offering the 101 Internet Tablet 16gb and the 80 G9 8gb at the same price (£179).  I am unsure which to go for.  Obviously the main difference is screen size and storage - but what else?

 

I played with the 101 IT in store the other day and loved the fact it offered 3g tethering via my mobile.  Will the 80 G9 do this too?  I am confused as some reviews say in Europe it will accept a 3rd party dongle, others say you have to use the Archos stick.

 

Any advice would be good?  Which is better 101 IT or 80 G9?

 

Thanks

Archos G8 are G9 are really two differents beasts in term of device performance and architecture.

See this benchmark for instance: /blog/archos-tablet/archos-g9-review-benchmark-archos-101-g9-1-ghz/

 

Tethering to a phone will work on both G8 and G9 devices, it's just a matter of establishing a Wifi connection.  Archos 3G stick works on both devices as well, it's just more integrated in the G9 with the extra integrated USB slot inside the case. So far, I don't know if other 3G sticks than the Archos are accepted, you may ask in the forum...

You really have to consider that the 2 devices are quite different, in term of performance and screen size (16/9 screen ratio on the 101 G8 vs 4/3 on the 80 G9), so the choice really depends on how you plan to use the devices.

Storage size shouldn't be an issue as you can find really cheap micro sdcard these days...
