Archos have unveiled their new G9 Android Honeycomb tablets, which pack both great speed and storage that are lacking on others. The new G9 tablets pack the industry’s fastest processor – an OMAP 4 processor with an ARM Cortex dual-core A9 running at 1.5 GHz. And they also have large storage capacity for your data, packing a Seagate’s 250GB hard disk drive.
There are two models of the Archos G9 tablets, which are an 8-inch and a 10-inch model, known as Archos 80 G9 and Archos 101 G9 respectively. The two G9 tablets run the Android Honeycomb 3.1 and come with full suite of mobile apps and have access to Android market for over 200K apps.
Unlike the iPad or other tablets, there isn’t a need to choose between a WiFi-only and a 3G version at purchase. The G9’s 3G connectivity solely depends on an external USB 3G stick that plugs into the USB port at the back of the G9 tablet, to allow it to have 3G connectivity. But this Archos 3G stick does not come free, it’s at a cost of $49 each.
The Archos G9 tablet is also expected to deliver faster web browsing experience, thanks to its TI’s dual-core 1.5 GHz OMAP 4 processor which is claimed to deliver up to 50% faster web browsing speed while compared to other tablets. Unlike your iPad, the Archos G9 tablet allows for viewing of Adobe Flash, ensuring you won’t miss anything with your web browsing on it.
The G9 is also priced relatively lower than other tablets. The 8-inch G9 model starts at $279 while the 10.1-inch model starts at $349. Both models will be available by end of September 2011. You can find out more about their features on Archos website.
