Archos 101 G9 Turbo arrives Remember the good old days when computers had this “Turbo” button which you could press to experience a boost in speed? Surely folks who played games by loading them into memory through the use of floppy disks will be able to identify with what I am talking about. After all, it took forever to load the game “Gods” by the Bitmap Brothers on a 286, and pressing the Turbo button on the computer after the game has loaded made it a nigh impossible albeit fun. Well, there is no such thing as a Turbo button in today’s modern computers, but when it comes to tablets, Archos of France has a different idea. Sure, there is no button to press for a boost in speed, but Archos decided to inject some “oomph!” into the Archos 101 G9 Turbo by offering a 1.2GHz dual core processor inside, giving it a 200MHz advantage over its predecessor.

Apart from that, storage space has also seen a jump to 16GB from 8GB in the previous model. Other than these two internal changes in specifications, everything else on the outside looks the same, including its 10.1″ display, Wi-Fi connectivity and Android 3.2 Honeycomb as the operating system of choice. Expect to fork out £299.99 or €349.99 for this puppy if you are interested.
