Archos Introduces The New G9 Tablet Series, Features Android 3.1 and 250GB HDD
Earlier today, Archos announced the new Archos 80 G9 as well as the Archos 101 G9. Archos typically names their devices based upon their screen size, and these two new devices are no different. The main difference between the two Android tablets are the screen size, as the Archos 80 G9 features a 8 inch touch screen display and the Archos 1010 G9 features a 10.1 inch touch screen display.
In addition, they both feature 250GB of hard drive space, which will definitely be more than enough to store all your favorite music, videos, movies, photos, and apps. Both tablets will launch with Android 3.1 in late September. They both come with state-of-the-art industry leading dual-core OMAP 1.5GHz processor. You can expect HDMI output as well as 1080p video playback. Unfortunately, the press release does not mention any cameras on the device, but my guess is that it comes with a front facing and a rear facing camera.
While WiFi comes standard on both tablets, Archos built-in support for a 3G dongle and all you have to do is pay for the 3G dongle separately and plug it into the USB port that can be found on either tablet. The 3G dongle costs $49 and you need to pay for any applicable data charges.
Lastly, possibly the most enticing feature about the two tablets is the affordable pricing. The Archos 80 G9 will cost $279 and the Archos 101 G9 will cost $349, when they both go on sale in late September.
