Sure $299 with keyboard would have been nicest, but even at $399 it's a no-brainer:

Archos 101 XS with keyboard: $399
Asus Transformer Pad TF300 with keyboard: $528 (+33%)
Acer Iconia Tab A700 with keyboard: $598 (+50%)
Asus Transformer Prime with keyboard: $648 (+63%)
iPad3 with keyboard: $598 (+50%)
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with keyboard: $598 (+50%)
Microsoft Surface with keyboard: $599 (likely) (+50%)

Archos 101 XS is the thinnest, the lightest, has better performance than Tegra3, offers fastest GPU and memory bandwidth on the market (the 32nm Exynos4412 probably beats or equals though), offers features none of those more expensive devices have.

Check back for my initial extensive video-review of Archos 101 XS Gen10 tomorrow!! I expect to use this as my favorite 10" device to replace all other 10" tablets, Netbooks and Ultrabooks in the months to come.

I think G9 is getting JB after G10 gets JB, the Archos software engineers are working full speed on it. G10 arrives on the European market mid-September, in the USA around October/November, the JB firmware perhaps around October, JB for G9 probably thereafter. This is just what I think, because G9 is based on software compatible same OMAP4 platform, so I think we can expect G9 to get updated to JB and what comes after.

Will there be 9 hour battery life as well in October for the XS?

If the issue in the pre-release beta firmware was that they had not yet set the power consumption governors right then yes, to be confirmed.

Launched and selling it but no stock to supply you.
Terrible customer service, no up-dates but you can have your money back.

No don't want my money back, I want the product you have sold to me, my order number was less than 300, how many did they think they would sell?

Email from Sales:
Dear sir,

We had stock when we released it, but not enough to handle all our orders. We are now waiting for a resupply since two weeks, which has been delayed many times.
We understand how annoying this situation is for our customers, this is why we propose you to cancel the order if you do not want to wait.

Cordialement / Best regards

Web sales department
