French tablet maker Archos handed out its 8-inch and 10-inch G9 tablets to world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the G20 and B20 conferences in France last week.

The 10-inch 101 G9 tablet was handed out to the heads of state and government members of G20 countries, as well as to journalists and other delegates attending the summit.

The dual-core Android 3.2 tablets were pre-loaded with the official application of the French Presidency for the G20 and G8 summits, as well as international newspaper applications and local map information.

The models were also able to access content from the summit in real-time, via the website, and were allowed to download additional applications from Android Market.

As part of the B20 summit, presidents of business confederations, and the 120 international business leaders, received an 8-inch Archos 80 G9 on arrival.

These tablets were pre-loaded with comprehensive programs of the B20, a list and biographies of the participants and various reports from B20 earlier on in the year. Videos could be accessed from the websites of the B20, and attendees were welcome to download other applications from Android Market.

The G20 and B20 summits took place in Cannes, France from the 2nd to the 4th of November.
