Assuming you can't wait until October to spend $300.00.
That was quick. Less that two week's ago, Archos showed off their upcoming G9 tablet at the IFA convention in Berlin. If it didn't set the world on fire, it's still an attractive tablet that's also competitively priced (between $300 and $470) and is just the thing for a tablet buyer looking for a reasonable iPad alternative. Consumers will get the chance to see for themselves when the device launches in October, but if just over a month is too long a wait, the G9 will be available for pre-order on September 20th. The announcement was made via press releases issued today.
All models run Android Honeycomb 3.2 and sport a dual-core processor. The lowest price version - the Archos 80 G9 8GB - has an 8 inch screen, runs at 1 GHZ and sells for $299. The other four models all run at 1.5GHz. The ARCHOS 80 also offers a 16GB version at $329 and a 250GB for $369. The 101 has a 10 inch screen and is available at 16GB for $399 and 250GB for $469. All versions come with Google apps installed and optional flash storage. Not bad, even if most buyers will just be playing Angry Birds.
