Another day, another giveaway. Today, we're holding another one of our "lightning" giveaways, which will continue until tomorrow, December 18th at 11:59PM PST. For your consideration, we have two Archos tablets: the Archos 80 G9, and the 101 G9. Both come in the 8GB "Classic" trim and are equipped with TI OMAP4 1GHz dual-core processors, Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and allow for up to 7 hours of video playback. They're both equipped with kickstands as well, so there's no need to go buy a costly tablet folio to enjoy some hands-free video watching. We're giving away one of each model, brought to you by our friends at Archos.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:
  • Archos 80 G9: kongaroo, aka Stephen (Kong?)
  • Archos 101 G9: Kevin (G*)

Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.


The 80 features an 8" 1024x768 display (like a standard desktop monitor - to optimize web browsing), while the 101 sports a larger 10.1" 1280x800 screen. Each tablet has miniHDMI and microUSB ports, built-in GPS, and 720p front-facing cameras for video chat.
