Deal Alert, Today Only: Archos 101 G9 Turbo Tablet for $279

Updated on 09 February 2012 by

The Archos 101 G9 is a unique Android tablet that Woot is selling today for just $279. Woot, as you should know by now, is the famous deal-a-day site that loves to run a good tablet deal every once and a while. Today, jokingly, Woot’s headline reads “You asked for it, and now we’re giving it to you! Starting today Woot sells nothing but tablets!” and while we hope that never actually comes to fruition, we do enjoy seeing the occasional tablet deal.

Today is one of those days with the Archos 101 G9. This 10.1″ tablet stands out with several unique features. For one, it’s got a built-in stand to keep it propped up. Then there’s the (optional) USB 3G module which is added via USB and will accept any standard SIM card (and can also be used on any USB-equipped computer). The G9 series is also the first from Archos to include Android Market support and full Google apps. And of course, the price — it’s affordable (especially with this deal from Woot)!

While the Archos 101 G9 comes pre-installed with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, Archos has recently said that they’d be updating the G9 tablets over the air to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
