Archos has been making media players for years and years. The company has recently been dabbling in the Android tablet market too, and has a couple cool looking devices that are coming soon. The tablets are the Archos G9 80 and G9 101.
The main difference between the two tablets is that the G9 101 has a 10.1-inch (1280×800) screen and the G9 80 has an 8-inch (1024×768) screen. Both run Android Honeycomb 3.2 and both have a speedy 1.5GHz ARM Cortex dual-core processor inside. A cheaper 8GB 8-inch version will offer a 1.0GHz CPU. All models will offer 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR connectivity, as well as a 720p capable front-facing video camera, and HDMI video output.
Each of the tablets will come in two flavors. One version has 16GB of flash memory, while the other has a hefty 250GB hard drive inside for storage. Incredibly, the hard drive version will only be 3mm thicker than the version with flash storage. The 80 G9 16GB version will sell for $329 with a 1.5GHz CPU, the 250GB version is $369, the 101 at 1.5GHz is $399 and the 101 G9 with 250GB it’s $469. The lone 1GHz version will be an 8GB Archos 80 G9, and will sell for $299. These tablets should all be available sometime this October.
