Archos Android Tablet: Out Sept. 15th

It's taken a while, but it looks like tablet PCs are finally starting to take off. Apple's new iTablet is rumored for an early 2010 release, but here in 2009 we've got both the CrunchPad, and Archos' new Android Internet tablet to look forward to. That's right; Archos has set an official release date for their upcoming touchscreen gadget. According to Pocketables, we can look forward to seeing it hit stores on September 15th.

Archos isn't just launching a tablet, though, they're heralding the release of a new generation of high-end Android products. It's time Google's OS stopped being a smartphone only affair. This new Archos tablet is a very high-end device, with a 5” WVGA touchscreen, 720p video suppport, HDMI output, up to 500 GB of storage, 7 hours of battery life, a Cortex CPU and 3.5G Internet connectivity. That's a feature list that gives all the iTablet rumors we've heard so far a run for their money.

In order to usher in this new age for Android, Archos has launched AppsLib, a new app store for “high-end Android devices”. Basically, they've decided to split the Android world between low/mid-range smartphones, and other devices like tablets, netbooks, and high-end smartphones. I'm not convinced that this new app market will produce the sort of apps Archos needs to compete with the iTablet's app store, but they've got the rest of 2009 to produce a solid line-up.

There's no information yet on the cost of this new Archos tablet, but we can expect to see more details arise over the next few weeks before launch.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
