Archos 80 and 101 G9 tablets 12-12-2011French tablet maker ARCHOS has confirmed today that they do intend to have¬†Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS updates ready for their latest Archos 80 G9 and Archos 101 G9 Android 3.2 Honeycomb powered tablets. According to their official statement ARCHOS anticipates they’ll have the updates tested and ready to go for G9 tablet owners during the first trimester of 2012 (or in other words early 2012).

When you purchase an Android tablet you have to always be asking yourself will this tablet be upgraded to the latest version of Android OS? Google is always improving on Android OS and releasing new versions of their mobile operating system to the general public (through open source) and to device manufacturers directly.

When updates are released device makers have to test the update out and make sure the OS is going to be able to run on any given devices included hardware, some devices do get left behind and then the open source community comes into play. Often times forums like xda-developers¬†release Android updates and custom ROMs –or builds of Android OS– for devices that don’t get updated by their manufacturer.

With the Archos 80 and 101 G9 tablets it seems that you won’t need to worry about getting updated for Android 4.0, at least.
