Under the Hood – Archos 101 Android Tablet

How annoying is it when you pick up your laptop, or any electronics for that matter, and hear a loose screw bouncing around in there. One Archos 101 user in Europe decided to take matters into his own hands and take apart his Archos Android Tablet, and documented it photographically for our viewing pleasure.

The Archos 101 Tablet has a 1GHz processor, Android 2.2, front VGA camera, rear camera, HDMI output, 8GB and 16GB internal storage, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, bluetooth and a 10.1 inch capacitive touchscreen. That’s a complete tablet fr under $300. Let’s hope we see it coming our way to North America sooner than later.

    Hey, I’m wondering if you could post a guide on how to break it down. I’d like to give mine a few upgrades, starting with an extended life battery. The next thing I want to do is up the internal memory, and I am wondering if you could help me there… Could you tell me if you found where the internal storage is located? I’m really hoping it’s a 1.8″ ZIF drive, and not soldered on to the board. When you took your unit apart did you notice anything that looked like the internal storage? And if you did… could you tell me where too look?
    I would greatly appreciate it.
