    Bang for your Buck: Archos announces pair of G9 Honeycomb Tablets



    Archos today announced a pair of new (and relatively affordable) Honeycomb tablets -- the Archos 80 G9 and Archos 101 G9. Both feature Android 3.1, a dual-core OMAP 4 processor running at 1.5GHz, and a 250GB Seagate hard drive.The Archos 80 G9 -- which runs just $279 -- is an 8-inch device with a 1024x768 resolution and 4:3 aspect ratio. The Archos 101 G9 -- $retailing at just $349 -- sports a 10.1-inch screen and a 1280x800 resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio.

    In addition, both tablets can take advantage of Archos' new 3G stick -- a USB stick that, for an extra $49 turns the Wifi tablets into pay-as-you-go 3G devices.The Archos 80 G9 and Archos 101 G9 will be available at the end of September and will be featured at the IFA conference earlier in the month in Berlin.

    What's crazy is it's got a 250GB hard drive!

    Nothing new for Archos, I already have the Gen8 7" Internet Tablet w/ 250GB HDD.

    ;-)

    It runs pretty well, the only hindrance to me is the 256 Megs of RAM. Although for what you pay, it has AWESOME specs. Graphics are second to none in a tablet that only costs $300. The HDD version is going to cost more. To compare: the 70 IT (Flash) version cost around $250, whereas the HDD version is about $100 more. Its still awesome! The Gen8 supports USB-Host, so even though my HDD version doesn't have an SD card slot, it CAN support external USB Drives. I haven't had very good success getting it to work consistently, but it DOES Work.
