Owners of Archos' G9 series of tablets should be receiving an update today, bringing the software version of their devices to 4.0.7. The update contains mostly bug fixes, but also enhances graphics performance:

Version 4.0.7 - June 19th, 2012

  • Applications: fix no audio when launching video capture impacting applications like Skype
  • Display: graphics performance enhancements
  • Hard drive based products: avoid potential loss of hard drive when 3G USB port is switched on with no peripheral attached
  • Wi-Fi: fix some more disconnect cases happening on some access points

Archos has been fairly consistent about updating the devices regularly - the last OTA update went out just over a month ago. While Archos does make up a decidedly small fraction of the already small Android tablet market, they're certainly setting an example with updates that other manufacturers could learn from. And as a clarification, no, this is not Android 4.0.7 - Archos just happens to have chosen that its own software builds.

If you have a G9-series tablet, you should check for the update now.
