Archos G9 first to get sweeping Android 4 patches

Archos used Thursday to roll out Android 4.0 upgrades to its G9 tablets (PDF). All 80 G9 and 101 G9 models should start getting the new firmware over-the-air. Archos' implementation adds unique touches besides what Google brings to the platform, such as 1080p video and automatic subtitle downloads for many formats, 3D MKV videos, file manager and remote control apps, and USB Ethernet adapter support.

The built-in Android 4.0 features speed up browsing, better control of multitasking apps, photo editing, the much improved autocorrection-capable keyboard, and continuous voice recognition. No mention was made of adding Face Unlock to give another method for accessing the tablet through looking at the front camera.

G9 tablets, unlike some Archos models, have Google's official sanction and can use the Google Play Store (Android Market), Gmail, and other service-specific apps.
