Archos has pushed out an update for the new Archos Gen8 tablets. That includes the Archos 28, Archos 32, Archos 43, Archos 70, and Archos 101. Some of those tablets haven’t even been released in the US yet.
The update from Android 2.1 to Android 2.2 brings a faster JIT compiler which should improve the performance of third party apps. You can also install some apps to the SD card, and apps that require Android 2.2 to run should now play well with the Archos tablets.
The firmware update also adds support for Bluetooth GPS receivers, faster USB transfers, and more accurate battery charge estimates.
One of the biggest changes is that after upgrading to Android 2.2, the tablets should be able to run Adobe Flash Player 10.1. Unfortunately the plugin isn’t available for the Archos tablets yet, because Archos is still waiting on certification from Adobe. A more detailed list of updates is available in the changelog.
If you already have an Archos tablet running Android 2.1 you should be prompted to download the update soon, but if you don’t feel like waiting you can grab the update from the Archos support page.
