Archos has issued another round of firmware updates for their mildly popular Archos G9 80 and 101 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablets. the Archos G9 line might not be the best hardware around, or the nicest, but for a great price they are impressive tablets that run a pretty stock version of Android 4.0 ICS. More details on yesterdays update are available after the break.

Archos recently released Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich for the G9 series of their Android tablets. It has only been available for a short time but it looks like they are on top of things and have already started fixing some minor bugs. If you own an Archos G9 and recently updated to Android 4.0 ICS this latest firmware update today should solve some of those WiFi issues some have been reporting.
Archos has been rather surprisingly quick to dole out timely updates for its tablet hardware (a fact that certain parties would do well to take not of). After upgrading their 8 and 10-inch 9th generation tablets to Ice Cream Sandwich via a software update, they’re re-releasing the G9 series with ICS straight from retailers. The G9 Turbo tablets will have the latest version of Android right off the shelf, something that very few phones and tablets can say even four months after release.
Back in early January Archos announced that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich would be landing for their G9 series tablets in the very near future. Now a few months later it has finally arrived and starting today the Archos G9 series such as the G9 80 and 101 are getting the update to Android 4.0 ICS bringing the usual changes and improvements with the latest from Google. The update is listed by Archos as v4.0.4 but that is their build number.
