Product Description

Offering a unique tablet design with the latest Android operating system, the ARCHOS 101 Internet tablet features a 10.1-inch multi-touch display with pinch-and-zoom capabilities, a fast 1. GHz processor for fast web browsing, HD multimedia playback, and multitasking across applications.

ARCHOS 101 Internet tablet
The Android-powered ARCHOS 101 with 10.1-inch multi-touch display and 16 GB internal memory (see larger image).


ARCHOS 101 Internet tablet
An integrated kickstand makes it easy to type using the virtual keyboard (see larger image).

The ARCHOS 101 features a patented construction process that uses an over-molded PVD stainless steel structure, enabling the tablet to be smaller, thinner and lighter--and thus even more portable. It measures just 0.47 inches thin and weighs just over 1 pound.

An integrated multi-position kick stand allows for hands-free use, enabling you to set the ARCHOS 101 in a stand-up position (approximately 60 degrees) to use the display as a PC monitor with an external keyboard or in a low position (approximately 30 degrees) for using the virtual keyboard.

With ultra-fast Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, you'll be able to connect to your home or business wireless network as well as hotspots while on the go. A built-in webcam means you can make video calls to family and friends. Additionally, a new feature in the Android settings menu allows the device to be tethered to a 3G phone via Bluetooth or USB for Internet connectivity when on the move.

This version of the ARCHOS 101 offers an internal 16 GB memory, which can be expanded using microSD memory cards up to 32 GB in size. It includes an HDMI port for connecting to a compatible HDTV or monitor and a full-sized USB port for transferring files from your PC as well as connecting an external keyboard. Other features include a variety of pre-loaded app (from the OfficeSuite productivity app to the Raging Thunderlite 3D car game), e-mail client that can handle multiple e-mail accounts, multi-format media player for music and video, and up to 10 hours of battery life when browsing the web.

Key Features

Unique Android Multimedia Applications

On top of Android's latest version, the ARCHOS 101 features several exclusive music, video and photo applications that offer smooth browsing through the album covers and home screen widgets that give instant access and control to your media. One of these functions--the 3D album cover application--allows you to glide through your music by album covers. You can also make your own music playlists or browse your songs and music by favorites, recently played or recently added.

ARCHOS 101 Internet
The innovative photo browser.

Because you want to enjoy your videos and TV shows without re-encoding them with complicated software, ARCHOS makes your life easier by supporting audio and video formats beyond the standard ones of Android. It can even display subtitles and alternate audio tracks--all you have to do is drag, drop, and play.

Browse through your photos with a simple flick of your finger or play a slideshow of your last vacation with music and transition effects. You can even display the pictures that your friends uploaded to Facebook or other photo sharing websites. The high-resolution screen perfectly reproduces each picture in such detail that you can easily zoom in to see the tiniest of details, there's no limit.

Other multimedia functions include an internet connected Photo frame application with 3D transitions, and the ability to sync your pictures with your Facebook, Picasa or Flickr account.

Connectivity to TV and PC

With its TV output, the ARCHOS 101 internet tablet displays every Android screen on your compatible widescreen HDTV or monitor. You can then browse your files or the Internet from your couch.

ARCHOS 101 Internet
Connect to a compatible HDTV using the HDMI port.

The ARCHOS 101 internet tablet also features Samba and UPnP protocols. This means that you play your movies, videos, and photos on your ARCHOS 101, but these files are really located on your computer in another room. You don't need to store everything on your ARCHOS to enjoy viewing it on your ARCHOS as your files reach your tablet via a Wi-Fi connection.

Read or Edit Your Office Documents

The ARCHOS 101 internet tablet combined with the pre-loaded OfficeSuite application allows you to easily create, revise or edit all of your Office documents. This office suite, compatible with Microsoft Office, gives you the ability to manage all of your Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. This application also serves a central location for managing both online and offline documents. It offers a multitude of improved features that include extraction of ZIP files, zoom mode, downloading files, text encoding options, and more. The ARCHOS 101 is also compatible with other formats such as pdf, rtf, and e-books.

I have been using Archos 101 for a month and I thought my experience might be useful for the other Amazon visitors. Before Archos 101 product, I had a chance of using iPad and Samsung Galaxy tab - which are our test tablets for the applications we developed. All tablet devices have their own pros and cons, I think as a buyer you are the one who know your needs best and you can decide which one fits your requirements.

I would like to evaluate the product from different aspects:

It has 10.1 excellent high resolution capacitive multitouch screens - be careful it is rectangular, not square type like iPad and the rest of the other 10inches (if you are looking for a case - this might be good to know) in the market. You can use it comfortably at both vertical and horizontal levels. The only problem with the screen is the angle limitation - if you do not have the correct angle, you might have some difficulties in looking at the screen. Practically it means it is for only one person use (good for privacy bad for sharing) - if want to watch a romantic HD movie with a loved one, you need to put it to a long distance (such a win-win: you can both watch the movie and there is nothing between you & the loved one!).

It has 1GB ARM Cortex A8 processer (same with Samsung Galaxy Tab) but 256mb RAM (512mb at Samsung). It is neither fast, nor slow. Firmware upgrades can help to increase the performance and at normal system use around 100 mb is free. If you use android it is always a good idea to limit the use of widgets, as they are consuming so much power of the device. I know they are nice and using them is the nature of android but try to limit yourself with only the "must haves". In return, you are going to get a better performance.

I ordered the Archos 101 Internet Tablet from Archos' own website about a week ago with the first release and received it a few days ago. I was excited to get my first tablet, and the price tag didn't make me fear starvation as a college student, a fear which the Galaxy Tab is all too enthusiastic to give. I had expected a little more from the device, and my own possibly defective unit may have hindered my experience somewhat. It's being replaced soon, and if my problems are not present in the next unit I'll probably keep it.

We all know that Android isn't really ready for tablets, or so Google has told us, but we're all a little anxious to see what the experience would be like. Us early adopters know no bounds, and our research has led us here, to the Archos 101 Internet Tablet. It's price tag makes it a prime choice in comparison to most of the major-brand tablets being released as you read, but that price comes with certain drawbacks that any informed consumer should be aware of.

To begin with, the problems:

The digitizer on the touchscreen is not particularly sensitive, and operates at a very low operating resolution. It also loses its calibration quite often (about every 20-40 minutes) and I was unaware that a capacitive touchscreen even could lose its calibration. Unfortunately this loss of calibration isn't always slight, and sometimes it will seriously take hours of fiddling with different points on the screen to navigate through the menus to recalibrate. I called Archos about this and my unit is being RMAed, so this could just be a feature exclusive to my dud.

The build-quality is unbelievably poor. Seriously, you don't want to take this tablet out of the house.

Verified Purchase
My conclusion, the Archos 101 is a great tablet, but :

(1) Out-of-the-box the Archos 101 comes without Google synchronization. This is a big issue, when you want to use Gmail and Google Calendar. It also means that you don't have the Android Market Place, which is also a big limitation. There seem to be all kinds of reason why this tablet does not come with Google, but buyers are not sufficiently advised by Archos of this crucial limitation. However, the problem can be resolved by downloading the gApps4Archos2.apk file from [...]. BTW gApps4Archos2.apk is for Android 2.2 . Now my 101 synchronizes with my Google applications (including Picasa and contacts) and market place works perfectly.
(2) Out-of-the-box the Archos 101 comes with Android 2.1 . It is easy to update the tablet to Android 2.2 once you are connected to the internet.
(3) While Android 2.2 improves the system, in the short term the upgrade creates problems for a number of applications. In my case, I am very disappointed that I can not install the Slingbox Player on my tablet, because it is not (yet) compatible with Android 2.2. The same applies to other applications. Slingmedia blames Android (Google) for this, but whatever the reason, it's a shame. I tried to access [...]and access my Slingbox through the web, but that is not possible either. I also have not yet been able to make use of the supposed video chatting advantage of the Archos 101 over the Ipad and this may also be related to Android 2.2 .
(4) It is not easy to print from the tablet.
(5) I have some problems with watching videos (that I transferred from Tivo desktop on my pc) but I hope to resolve this soon by tweaking some settings.
(6) A number of app have problems. I blame it on Froyo but am not sure.
