Archos is rolling out an over-the-air update for the Archos 80 and Archos 101 G9 tablets. The update brings Android 4.0.3 to the tablets, as well as Archos customizations.

Archos G9 with Android 4.0

Archos includes its own file manager and a video player which supports 1080p HD video playback in a wide range of formats as well as subtitles and DNLA media streaming.

But the big news here is that the tablets now support Google’s latest operating system with improved multitasking, notifications, spell checking, and a streamlined look and feel.

The Archos G9 line of tablets were the first from the company to ship with Android 3.2 Honeycomb and Google Certification, which means they can download apps from the Google Play Store and run Google’s Android apps such as Gmail and Google Maps.

The Archos 80 G9 has an 8 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel display while the Archos 101 G9 has a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel screen. Both tablets are available with TI OMAP 4 dual core processors and either flash storage or hard drives. They sell for around $270 and up.
