I met with Archos while i was at CES and they did say that they would be getting Honeycomb.
I had a chance to check out all of their tablets too and i was quite impressed. Really solid hardware at good price points. What i really like is that they dont try to do anything fancy with the UI its relatively stock with the exception of their media apps and widgets but i believe they can be uninstaller anyway if you want to use other media apps. Archos was always a bit rough in the MP3 and PMP arena, but i certainly think they are on the right path with their 8th gen tablets.
I dont think Archos expected the demand they got for these, they are hard to find in retail and are often out of stock on their site.
