Archos G9 tablets get ICS in Q1 2012

Break out the ice cream and turn up the music, it’s an Ice Cream Sandwich party. Great news because the guest list just got a little bit bigger. Archos announced today that its 8-inch 80 G9 and 10-inch 101 G9 tablets will be getting that upgrade to 4.0 that’s been on everyone’s wish list. This news couldn’t come at a better time since the G9′s had been plagued by a series of disappointing maneuvers by Archos including downgrading specs before launch, to bumping up the retail price.

In any case, while the company’s G9 Turbos are on track for a late Christmas release, the G9′s already out in the market will be getting ready to learn some new tricks. In terms of the G9 Turbos, seeing as how we’re already almost half done with the month of December, we should be hearing news shortly. So there you have it folks, your precious G9s will be playing with the big boys before the end of March 2012.
