Tablets have fared far better than smartphones under Ice Cream Sandwich's Lady Liberty embrace. While the market's seen a paucity of smaller-screened Android 4.0 devices, the opposite is true of its slate cousins. And Archos appears determined to further spread Google's latest OS love to the people with a G3 update to its budget-minded Arnova line. A tab bearing the model number A9G3 -- presumably the outfit's 9.7-incher -- has recently sailed through the FCC's gates with radios for WiFi b/g/n on board.
