All the way back on June 23rd, Archos announced the G9 Series Honeycomb tablets, the Archos 80 G9 and the Archos 101 G9, and said that they would be out on shelves by the end of September. Well, we’re now in the middle of said month and Archos has made good on its promise as it has just announced that the G9 series will become available on September 20th.
On September 20th, you will be able to pre-order a Archos 80 G9 8GB tablet, a tablet that will cost you a mere $299 making it the first Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet with a dual-core processor to be priced under $300.
It will feature a 1GHz dual-core OMAP 4 ARM Cortex A9 processor, Android 3.2 and it will also have access to the Android Market. It will then become available for purchase both online and in-stores on September 30th.
In addition, Archos will be launching another Archos G9 tablet with a faster processor and more storage options in October. Pricing and storage options for that device look like this:
- ARCHOS 80 G9 16GB – 1.5 GHz at $329
- ARCHOS 80 G9 250GB – 1.5 GHz at $369
- ARCHOS 101 G9 16GB – 1.5 GHz at $399
- ARCHOS 101 G9 250GB – 1.5 GHz at $469
That pricing is extremely competitive for a Honeycomb-powered tablet which means this will be something to look at for consumers who don’t want to break the bank when purchasing a tablet.
