Engadget Review

How many other $300 tablets run Android 3.2 and come with a kickstand and full-sized USB port? Try as you might, you'll be hard-pressed to get as much bang for your three hundred bucks.

A great budget tablet or someones first tablet, but a so-so or even a poor tablet for power users.

Summary: Great Honeycomb tablet with imminent ICS upgrade. The internals are solid but the externals are somewhat lacking. It's small but I find it the perfect size. It's a budget tablet, but I don't think any other kind makes sense--and this one still lets you do everything you want to be able to do with a tablet.One other thing. If you read the Engadget review of this tablet, you were misled to believe the port in the back of the device is a full usb port. That is completely untrue, and I'm more than a little disappointed that they got that wrong. From Archos's website: "The USB host port on the back of your G9 tablet is reserved for only the ARCHOS G9 3G Stick. You will not be able to plug any other USB devices in this port."
