Gadget seller Dynamism today made available for pre-order the Archos 101 G9 ICS, one of the first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tabets. Besides Android 4.0, the Archos 101 G9 ICS sports a 10.1″ 1280×800 display, and a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU paired with 1GB RAM. Storage options include 8GB or 16GB of flash-based memory, or a traditional 250GB hard drive with a thin form factor. Archos’ new tablet has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a front 720p camera, GPS, mini HDMI port, and Micro SD card slot.
The Archos 101 G9 with built flash storage is 12.6mm thin and weighs 650g, whereas the HDD version is 3mm thicker and 100g heavier.
Images of the offered tablet suggest that it has the same chassis as the previous Android Honeycomb model we saw at the IFA show last September. It does have a kickstand, but the images unfortunatelly don’t reveal if the 101 G9 ICS has the proprietary SIM card USB stick for 3G connectivity like on the older model.
The 8GB, 16GB, and 250GB editions are priced at $330, $350, and $390, respectively, with estimated shipping time in March for Flash versions and April for the HDD model.
Note: Dynamism actually list the tablet as Archos 100 Gen9 ICS, but we think that the accurate name is 101 G9 ICS, which is in line with the old naming scheme.

Real updates from Archos will never come, people who buy the original tablets in the end of 2010 still have to deal with the slow Android 2.2
I will never buy an Archos again and would not recommend Archos to friends either.
