101 xs VW G9 Turbo 1.5GHz

Post by damn-86 »

Hello,

I'm thinking about buying a Archos tablet.
Comparing the 101 xs and the G9 Turbo with 1.5GHz I can not find so much differences on the Archos homepage beside the keyboard.
The G9 Turbo with 16GB is about 240€ and the 101 xs about 370€. 130€ only for the keyboad?!

I'm not able to find any significant camparisons at google. Do you have any advices for me?



Regards,
Sven

Well, the 101xs is the new model, while the 101G9 is the last years one. 101xs has slightly better CPU, but also 2x more powerful GPU. It's far more thinner(and I think it looks really great) and thanks to a new backlight technology, its display is better than the display on the 101G9. On the other hand, the G9 has a kickstand and a full-size USB port where you can plug in an 3G stick.

Then we also have slight differences like the bluetooth 4.0 on the 101xs(2.1 on G9), the front facing speaker and probably more updates to come to 101xs...
