It's also great for gaming, entertaining and surfing the web. Basically, the 80 G9 Turbo is designed for anyone who regularly runs several programs/applications simultaneously. For ease-of-use, Archos equipped the 80 G9 Turbo Tablet with the intuitive and user-friendly Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, which offers both simple control and smart navigation. Plus, any tablet that runs an Android OS benefits from access to the ever-expanding list of apps available from the Android App Market. Whether you're a musician looking for a sound generator application or a young professional in need of a mobile banking app, the Android App Market has everything you need to simplify your daily routine. It even offers hundreds of games and entertainment apps right at your fingertips.

To ensure maximum flexibility, the tablet's generous 8GB internal Flash memory is expandable thanks to the microSD (SDHC compatible) memory card slot. This way, you'll be able to comfortably store all your favorite music, videos, family photos, business documents, eBooks, local newspapers, daily podcasts, weekly magazines, movies and more. Plus, in order to maximize your viewing and browsing pleasure, the 80 G9 Turbo features a stunning, high-definition 8" capacitive TFT LCD color multi-touch screen display with 1024 x 768 resolution. For connecting to the Internet, the 80 G9 Turbo has built-in wireless 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, which gives you access to your favorite websites in full-page browsing format from any WiFi hot-spot or from your home wireless network. The tablet also affords wireless connection of peripheral devices with its built-in Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR capability.

Whether you're a social butterfly or dedicated worker-bee, the mini HDMI output and microSD (SDHC compatible) memory card slot will definitely come in handy. The HDMI output lets you connect the tablet to a compatible HDTV and enjoy the tablet's content in high-definition on a big screen. This way you can share your HD home movies, stored video or streaming Internet content with friends and family on a large HDTV screen. In fact, the 80 G9 Turbo supports Full HD 1080p video playback at 30 frames per second. The inclusion of a microSD (SDHC compatible) memory card slot is perfect for work and play as well. The card slot allows you to expand the integrated 8GB storage capacity by storing media files and text documents on a microSD or microSDHC card (cards sold separately).

The 80 G9 Turbo is also capable of delivering several hours of fun and entertainment. You can store and play various types of media formats including text, audio, video, photo and subtitle files. Plus, you can use the Android App Market to download any apps you may need for work, play or both. In a matter of minutes, you can check the newspapers, download a game, buy some clothes, check the weather, and even communicate with friends and family via social networks or by using the 720p HD front-facing webcam. You can even configure several different email accounts using the pre-installed Email App, which can deliver email notifications on the tablet's home screen. The battery inside the tablet is a powerful lithium-polymer rechargeable battery that supports up to 36 hours of music playback, seven hours of video playback, and up to 10 hours of Internet navigation time. The powerful smart multi-core processor also allows you to play the latest in 3D games available from the Android App Market. It's rare to find a tablet that is built just as much for business as it is for pleasure; the 80 G9 Turbo from Archos is surely one of the exceptions - as it's ideal for both work and play.

        Comments about Archos 8GB 80 G9 Turbo 8" WiFi Tablet with Android 4.0:

        This tablet is more than worth it's price! I will be more specific as to why...

        First, it has access to Google Play Market which is NOT a given at this price point.

        Second, the processor on this tablet is ultra Fast (1.5 Ghz) and it shows when browsing the internet and running applications. It's faster than any Tegra 2 device which are more expensive!! I know first hand since this isn't my first tablet.

        Third, I LOVE the kickstand (why other tablets don't do this is beyond me) and extra ports : HDMI, SD Card Slot, USB. Sadly, the 3G Stick doesn't work in the U.S.

        Lastly, some cons:

        Screen isn't bad but the viewing angles are similar to that of the older LCD HDTV's with not so great viewing angles.

        HDMI output is 4x3 which I didn't consider before buying this tablet. If this an issue for you, consider the 101 G9 turbo instead since it's 16x9 native.

        Overall, I'm happy with my purchase. I really believe that this is one of the "best bang for your buck" tablets out there. The other being the Google Nexus 7. However where the Nexus 7 falls short, the Archos 80 G9 Turbo doesn't.

        This tablet is great for its low price. Bought this for my daughters 9th birthday, and she loves it. Android 4.0 works very well. Does not have the build quality of a $500.00 tablet but good enough and you will not feel bad about upgrading down the line.

        Well built tablet with many of the features of much more expensive tablets.

        Ships with Android 3.2 but is update able out of the box to 4.0 ICS.

        Comparatively dim screen and lower battery life than iPad, quad core 1.5ghz processor runs almost uncomfortably hot at times.
