Archos adding a slew of Android tablets including the 101

With two Archos 5 tablets in my rearview mirror, I am definitely looking forward to the new 101.  The nomenclature is shorthand for the 10.1″ screen with 1024×600 resolution.

The specs can be found here but the most notable are:

- Android 2.2
- ARM Cortex A8 1GHz processor accompanied by a 3D OpenGL ES 2.0 for graphics

This unit would/could be just another tablet that can be bought unlocked from a carrier and without a data plan but with WiFi springing up all over the place, who cares?  We don’t need no steenkin’ 3G!
