We have some good news this week for owners of the Archos G9 Android tablet. Archos has announced that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update is now rolling out OTA to tablet owners. To perform the update the user just needs to look for the notification "A" in the lower right-hand corner of the tablet, and then tap it.

Once that icon is pressed, the update will download and then install. The update will bring a number of new features including faster web browsing, better multitasking, rich notifications, and customizable home screens. Users will also get resizable widgets to enhance social media integration. Android 4.0 also offers improved text input and spell checking along with a dynamic voice input engine.

Archos also included some special items in the update just for G9 users including support for full 1080p video with most codecs, movies, and TV shows. Descriptions and subtitles now automatically download and wireless content can be shared between the tablet and any computer or DLNA device. If you own one of these tablets and have applied the update, let us know how it worked out for you.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
