Archos 101 XS Review
The 10-inch Archos 101 XS Android tablet offers snappy performance and comes with a keyboard for an affordable price, but its design could be better.
(3 out of 5)
Is the keyboard mightier than the stylus? While some tablet makers have opted to include a pen with their devices, others have sought to incorporate a keyboard. Archos falls into the latter camp with the 101 XS. This 10-inch system running Android ICS comes with a keyboard that attaches magnetically and sports Android-specific buttons. At $399, the 101 XS costs the same as tablets that don’t come with this accessory. Is this slate really a bargain?
