If you have a 101 XS from Archos, it's time to furiously start hitting the "check updates" button, as the company just began pushing Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) to the device. This bumps the tablet up to version 4.1.0, and brings a couple other enhancements along for the ride, as well:

  • Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 firmware release
  • Archos Video: major upgrade with simplified video information retrieval and media indexing, new network shares infrastructure
  • Archos applications: future updates of Archos Video, Music, File Manager, System Monitor applications (embedded in the firmware) will be carried out through Google Play


So there you go - if Jelly Bean is what you've been feening for, the wait is over.

    It would be great if I could find one of these in the US. I'm still waiting for them to hit the Archos store.

      Why the hell would you want to by one of these? The nexus 10 is miles ahead with not much higher price.

        But this comes with the built in keyboard... pure win.

          Seems like a legit reason. The only reason ;)

    Do you mean "fiending," as in "drug fiend"? I don't know what "feening" is.

    According to this article...http://liliputing.com/2012/08/archos-101-xs-tablet-with-keyboard-case-coming-soon-for-400.html they were suppose to be available in the US in November. Since that obviously isn't true, I'd assume it's at least sometime soon! Fingers crossed.
