Archos G9 Android tablet available for pre-order


Archos G9 Android tablet available for pre-order

The Archos G9 is an Android-based tablet, offering a decent spec sheet and styling that doesn’t look like just another Apple iPad clone. The G9 was first announced back in June, but it’s set to be available for pre-order in the next few days.

The Archos G9 is one of the latest tablets to hit the shops, and you’ll be able to pre-order it on the 20th September. It features rounded edges and a curved design that set it apart from all the iPad clones, and there’s a decent set of specs on offer to tempt you.

You’ll be able to choose from two different models – the 8-inch Archos 80 G9, and the 10.1-inch Archos 101 G9, and both feature detailed screen resolutions. The 8-inch tablet comes with a 1024×768-pixel display, and the 10-inch model boasts a 1280×800-pixel panel.

Somewhat unusual for an Android tablet, you’ll also be able to spec the G9 with a traditional hard drive. With up to 250GB on offer, could this be the ultimate tablet for home entertainment? We’ll have to wait and see, as we’re not sure what the HDD will do for battery life!

Slightly more conservative buyers will be able to opt for flash memory, with 16GB versions also available.

Will you be signing up to buy the Archos G9? Leave a comment and let us know.
