Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The Archos 101 internet tablet is a tablet whose choice you'll be proud of. You'll have in your hands the best of the highly desirable Android technology with a large, high-resolution 10.1 inch display and a slim and light profile.

Beyond containing your window into the Internet and your HD multimedia, your device is completely customisable with a world of apps to make it your personal tablet. With more people looking toward this new trend in Internet tablets, Archos has carefully matched the power of the Android platform to a seductive design that will have heads turning. With the adjustable leg stand, you will always have the best position to tap out your emails, view a movie or enjoy the photo frame application. Whether you're looking at the Archos 101 in landscape or portrait mode, your pictures will look bright and crystal clear on the high-resolution 1024 x 600 resolution display. It doesn't matter if you have it in your hands or if it's standing on a table, you will always be impressed by the quality of the screen. Android is the application framework developed by Google for connected mobile devices, coming with a full pack of connected apps such as a web browser and email application.

The 5 home screens of the Android user interface on the Archos 101 allow advanced personalisation; icons can be placed, moved or erased with just a flick of a finger. Thanks to the home screen widgets, users can instantly access their favourite applications. Basically, this is what you see on your product screen, but ten times bigger. With it's TV output, the Archos 101 internet tablet displays every Android screen on your wide screen TV. You can then browse your files or the Internet from your couch. And guess how immersed in your 3D games you could be using the device as a steering-wheel.

Want to be connected anywhere?. Just plug your mobile phone (equipped with 3.5G and Bluetooth technology), simply pair it up to your Archos 101 internet tablet via Bluetooth or even via USB cable. This will give you easy access to the Internet directly on your device anytime and anywhere. There's no need to pay an extra fee when you already have a data service plan. The Archos 101 internet tablet has 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 tablet to enjoy viewing it on your tablet.

4.0 out of 5 stars 360 degree Archos 101 review 17 Feb 2011
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good product albeit with design flaws 9 Jan 2011
I had high expectations from the Archos 101 from the many reviews on CNET and other review sites. When I finally got my hands on one of these, I was happy with the device in general, but was there were some issues which I could not accept and hence with a heavy heart I returned the item back last week.

The following are + and - of this device:
+1 Great looking, very lightweight and feels well-built.
+2 Has all the required codecs to play multimedia files.
+3 Wi-fi and USB connectivity is good. I have not been able to test the HDMI connectivity though.
+4 The screen has a decent resolution and is quite responsive to the touch (as its capacitive).
+5 Price - I got mine in december 2010 for 272 which is far less than the Samsung Galaxy Tab or iPAD

-1 The unit has a serious design flaw, which allows the inbuilt LI-ON battery to run down to 0% charge. Once the battery reaches 0%, it does not get charged again. I have tried a lot of CPR activities to bring the battery back to life (have also tried some posts in the archosfans website) but no use. As a result I have now returned my unit.
-2 There are some stability issues with Android 2.2 - In the few days that I owned this product, I do not recollect a singe day when I did not have to hard-reboot this device, as it frequently hangs/freezes.
-3 Battery does not last more than 3 hrs with standard stuff you would expect to do on this device (wi-fi, browsing, etc). I expect a tablet to last at least 8-10 hrs on a full charge.
-4 The charger connector does not fit well into the main device. On many occasions I saw that the charging had stopped despite the charger being connected. Not sure if this was a flaw only in the item that I received.

5.0 out of 5 stars Archos 101 28 Mar 2011
By Markg
Brilliant! All you really need if surfing the internet is what you want to do. Latest Flash 10.2 plug in works well and it is easy to get access to the full android market.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm happy with it 30 Nov 2010
By FFMan
I've had the 101 for a couple of weeks now, and whilst I agree its not the most sturdy device around, light weight devices with large screens always demand to be handled with care. Treat it sensibly and I don't expect an issue. I bought this as no way was I shelling out for an iPad, beautiful though it is, so I expected this not to be quite as slick, and it isn't. However its perfectly usable and responsive and great for consulting the web and watching movies. It probably won't change your life but its near-instant on means you'll pick it up often and the desktop will get used less. The micro-sd card slot works a treat, and the USB host port allows plugging in of mouse, keyboard or usb memory stick. It's not quite as slick as an iPad but its half the cost and I'm happy that its good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Took some taming but I love it 20 May 2011
I bought this as a cheap, playaround gadget. Partly to have a muck around with android and partly to see if I had any use for a tablet. I've had it for 3 weeks now.
I had read many reviews both positive and negative, remained undecided for ages then bought it on a whim. Now before I go onto why I ended up loving this device I'll run through the bad stuff.
1: If you take it as it comes you will nitpick and be disappointed. It needs a firm hand and a fair bit of tweaking to make it run as you'd like it to.
2: The screen struggles in bright light and at certain angles.
3: It can be buggy and we mustn't forget this is a budget/early adopt device. The bugs, however, are liveable with.
4: Everything works but making it work is neither intuative nor simple.
5: Every key near an edge is sticky.


1: With froyo and launcher pro (lp made it good get this) plus overdriving the cpu it becomes satisfyingly fast and fun
2: It runs any media you throw at it.
3: with a bit of knowledge and tweaking it will run like a dream.
4: It's damn cheap for for what you get.
5: It has every port you'll ever need and can read from any USB device.
6: Kickstand
7: It's stupidly thin and light and the battery lasts.
8: My girlfriend can use it with ease.
9: Brilliant with comics, books, games and apps.

I love my 101 despite it's quirks.
