Archos G9 Tablet Priced At $300, Ships In September


Remember the Archos tablet duos of Archos 80 G9 and Archos 101 G9 respectively? We've received information that the tablets have now been priced at $299.99 USD onwards for the lowest spec Archos 80 G9. Here's the full pricing list ranging from the lowest 8 GB (SSD) to the highest 250 GB (Seagate HDD):

Archos 80 G9 (8 Inch Tablet) :
  • 8 GB SSD - 1 Ghz - $299.99
  • 16 GB SSD - 1.5 Ghz - $329.99
  • 250 GB Seagate HDD - 1.5 Ghz - $369.99

Archos 101 G9 (10.1 Inch Tablet) :
  • 8 GB SSD - 1 Ghz - $369.99
  • 16 GB SSD - 1 Ghz - $399.99
  • 250 GB Seagate HDD - 1.5 Ghz - $469.99

As you can see from the price range above, Archos is trying to push the 250 GB Seagate HDD model especially on the 10.1 Inch version of the tablet which I think is a good move to generate sales but not so good for the consumers who prefer the slimmer and faster SSD version and also want a faster processor (the SSD versions of the Archos 101 runs on 1 Ghz processors only). 

Nevertheless, they're competitively priced and would prove interesting on how the new Archos Duos will fare against the current crop of HoneyComb tablets in the market.
