Archos Adds ICS OS to G9 Android Tablet Line

Archos' line of G9 Android tablets may soon include Android 4.0, aka, Ice Cream Sandwich.

A preview video has been released that showcases the smooth operation of this latest Android OS on the French gadget manufacturer's tablets.

This latest tablet is an odd combination of older versions with an ultra modern operating system. However, the credit for its success goes to Ice Cream Sandwich, which puts more processing pressure on the tablet's GPU and not on the tablet's CPU.

A release date for the tablet has been determined yet, but according to various reports, it may be released before the end of this year.

With the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) scheduled for January 2012, the market might see a few more Ice Cream Sandwich tablets before then, reports Tech Digest.

Archos G9 tablets are some of the most pocket friendly tablets available on the market. The new update will help the French manufacturer strengthen their position in the rapidly growing tablet market. On the other hand, the latest Android 4.0 version will be launched with Samsung Galaxy Nexus in smartphones, which could cause increase competition for both companies.
