$299 Archos G9 HoneyComb Tablet goes on Sale on September 20

French Archos announced the Archos G9 Android Tablet back in June. The Archos G9 tablet is running on the 1.5Ghz dual-core OMAP 4 CPU from Texas Instruments. Archos claims that the G9 reduces page load time by 50% compared to Android tablets running on the Tegra 2 CPU at 1Ghz. Archos is not using SSD in the G9, which allows them to offer the G9 at pretty low pricing and offer more storage for media. The G9 comes as 8-inch and as 10-inch model. Both run on the latest Android 3.2 HoneyComb operating system. 

Today the company announced that the 8-inch Archos G9 with 1 Ghz Dual-Core CPU will sell for only $299. The Archos G9 Turbo powered by a 1.5Ghz will sell for $399.

The entry model has a 80GB HDD and is dubbed Archos 80 G9 8GB. Archos says that the G8 will feel as fast and responsive as a flash device but gives you storage space to spare. Wanting to give users the best of both worlds, ARCHOS paired the Seagate Momentus Thin hard drive with a dedicated 4GB flash caching system. This ARCHOS engineered hybrid solution offered on all ARCHOS G9 hard drive tablets is designed to limit spinning and to keep the drive powered down when not in use, which will protect it when on the go as well as preserve battery life.

The Archos G9 is interesting especially if you want to carry around a lot of media on your tablet. I am not sure how well it will sell as I expect the current Tegra 2 Android Tablet also drop to $299 during the Black Friday Shopping season.

The Archos 80 G9 8GB will be joined by more powerful models in October. Here is the complete line-up of Archos G9 tablets:

  • ARCHOS 80 G9 8GB – 1 GHZ at $299 
  • 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
