Archos 80 G9 Android Tablet

The Archos 80 G9 tablet is a great buy for the money.  I did a lot of research before purchasing this tables, and I am most impressed with its speed and graphics.  Archos G9 tablets have access to the true Android Market unlike many other lower end tablets. Another great feature of the Archos G9 series is the ability to add 3G connectivity via an Archos USB 3G adapter. I have downloaded many games and apps that run smooth as silk on this tablet.  Angry Birds comes with the tablet and plays smooth as silk.  The Dual Core processor is plenty to make this tablet run with the best of them.  I have also found that it has a very long battery life. I have been able to take it along on jobs where I have wireless access and listened to the radio all day thru the tablet and not lost all the battery.  I have also used the tablet to view flash enabled websites and it works fine.

PewPew 2 for BlackBerry PlayBook Coming Soon. (Early Look Review)

About a month ago I randomly downloaded a game called PewPew and wasn’t expecting much but ended up having an insane amount of fun playing the game! Obviously with it being the first game in the series, it was missing a few features and didn’t feel like it was living up to its full potential. Thankfully I got in contact with the creator of the original and he told me he was creating a second and gave me an early release copy of the game to review. The game has truly lived up to its full potential! For any of you who don’t know Pew Pew is a game where you play as a ship and have to shoot oncoming enemies in different game modes.
