We've been waiting patiently for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to get released out to various devices, and we knew that Archos had promised to have the update out for all G9 tablets by February
, but it looks like that date was off by just a bit. Rather than February, today marks the day that the OTA ICS update for the Archos G9 tablets began its rollout.
The update began rolling out to Archos G9 80 and 101 tablets (8" and 10" respectively) this morning. And, for the slight delay, Archos has included more than just the standard update to Android 4.0. Not only will users be getting the bump to Android 4.0.3, but there are "unique Archos add-ons" in the mix as well. Those add-ons include full 1080p video support for "most codecs", as well as automatic downloading of TV/Movie info and subtitles. The update also includes DLNA support for wireless content sharing and 3D support for MKV3D files. There is an updated File Manager, Ethernet USB dongle support and even an Archos remote control app, which will allow you to control your tablet from any other Android device.
Not a bad update all total. Enjoy, Archos G9 tablet users!
