Archos To Launch Next Generation Android Tablets: G9

Last year, Archos launched their new series of Android tablets that ranged from a 2.8" to 10.1" screen.  In January 2011, we reviewed the Archos 70 tablet and gave it 3.69 stars out of 5.  Now, Archos is launching its latest generation dual core G9 tablets: 8" and 10.1" screens.  The 8" is a departure from the standard 7" but actually may be more ideal in terms of mobility.

So what do these tablets pack?
  • 1.5GHz dual-core TI OMAP4 (ARM Cortex A9) processor 
  • 16GB or 250GB internal storage
  • 8" supports 1024x768 resolution
  • 10" supports 1280x800 resolution
  • HDMI port
  • Front camera
  • Full USB port
  • Honeycomb 3.1
  • Optional 3G dongle ($49 extra)
  • Full Google apps including Android Market
  • 1080p
Starting price for the 80 is $279 and for the 101 is $349.  Archos may have another winner with these tablets. These are powerful tablets at a great price.  Archos stated that these should be available at the end of September.
