ARCHOS Talks Up Its Gen 9 Super Tablets for June 2011 Release


archos gen 9 slide

We told you it was coming. Now we have a slide to take in, detailing what ARCHOS’ Gen 9 tablets will be offering this June, courtesy of Le Journal du Geek. In a nutshell, the new tablets will be lighter, thinner, and stronger using ARCHOS patented technology. They will sport a dual-core 1.6GHz ARM A9 processor (faster than the iPad2 or XOOM) and be offered in 250GB HDD and 32GB SSD variations. No doubt the HDD version will be a bit fatter and heavier. Note both models will retail for the same price, though. Sadly there’s no talk of cameras or battery life in the slide, but the Gen 9 models will have a 3G connectivity option. Could this be ARCHOS first entry at Verizon, AT&T, and the like? [via]

    I am glad to see the slew of android tablets hitting the market.

    How long until we see a definitive leader in this emerging segment?

    I am just looking for a pdf/cbr reader with a decent sized HD.

    It would be nice to have the cam/gps/1080 but I don’t want to pay 600 -800 for something that will be 300 – 400 in a year or two. (learned my lesson with PS3) Early adopters always get hosed.

    Archos+Android+tablet+250GB HD might just equal the combination I have looking for so I can liquidate my aging laptop collection. I’ve been wanting something ipad-y with Android and space for my music collection and it sounds like we’re almost there.
