The fastest tablet from Archos, is set to roll out late this September. The company will be launching the Honeycomb tablet as an 8-inch version. The Archos 8.0G9 slate will be packing an OMAP 4 dual-core chip that will run at 1.5GHz The company is making big claims that it can reduce load time by up to 50% over Tegra 2 chips when browsing the Internet.

It will come stuffed with a 250GB Seagate hard drive – we guess you will have a hard time filling them up! Besides, it can decode 1080p H264 high profile videos when compared to the 720p H264 high profile videos, which the current tablets decode.
