Archos 101 G9 Android Honeycomb Tablet Launched; Costs $370

October 12, 2011, By Leo Xavier

Archos has officially announced the launch of their latest tablet, the Archos 101 G9. The new device, which comes with a price tag of $370, runs the Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS and is now available for purchase.

The Archos 101 G9 tablet, which follows the launch of the company’s smaller Archos 80 G9 tablet, comes equipped with a 10-inch capacitive multitouch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800.

The device boasts a dual-core 1GHz ARM CORTEX A9 OMAP4 processor, which probably makes it the most powerful tablet Archos has released to date.

 

The device, which measures in at 10.86 x 6.59 x 0.50 inches and weighs 23.8 ounces, also comes with 8GB of internal memory, HDMI output and a front-facing 720p camera. And it is also one of the first tablets from the company to ship with the official Android Market and Google app suite including Google Maps and Gmail.

But the new tablet isn’t much cheaper than some of the tablets that are available in the market these days.

As you might know, the Acer Iconia Tab A500 or the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, which are 10-inch tablets, comes with a price tag of about $400 or less. You will also find a number of smaller tablets from ViewSonic, Lenovo, and Acer that costs $200 to $330.

But it seems like Archos has ambitious plans for the future. They have plans to offer a speedier 1.2 GHz version of the newly launched tablet later this month. A 1.5 GHz version might also launch sometime next year.
