A Gen8 or Gen9 tablet? I have the older Gen8 tablet, not the newer Gen9.

Yes. It works like a big Android phone.

Maybe. Not all apps will work with the larger screen or with the version of Android. You will may have to "side load" some of the apps (i.e. not get them through the normal app stores).

Then the Archos should work for you.

I do all those things with my Archos 101 now. The only thing that the Gen8 had an issue with is the stuff that needed more horsepower to do (like YouTube and many Flash things). The Gen9 is supposed to have more power and should be able to run Flash stuff better.

Archos makes a great media tablet (for watching movies, reading books, light web surfing) that also works for most games. But it won't work well if you are expecting a mini-laptop. Again, the Gen9 is supposed to address issues like that.
