Archos G9 Android 3.1 Tablets Get Dual-Core Fast, 250GB Storage, 3G Ready, And Low Price

Archos is known for offering affordable alternatives, but today they've really outdone themselves and most of the competition. They've just unveiled two new Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablets---the Archos 80 G9 and the Archos 101 G9---that rock some pretty nice specs and possibly the largest on board storage, but slot in at the sub-$350 price range.

Archos has just pulled the official curtain off the company's latest Android-based Internet tablet. The Archos 70 Internet tablet may just look like another tablet on the outside, especially when compared to previously released Archos-branded Android-based tablet devices, but this one's special.

France wants tablet-tax for iPad and Android slates while Windows exempt

France wants tablet-tax for iPad and Android slates while Windows exempt

French legislators are considering imposing a tablet-tax that would affect all models with at least 40GB of internal storage, though Windows-based slates would be exempt. The proposal, reported by Numerama, is part of French "private copy" taxation which imposes extra fees on digital media like blank CDs, DVDs and thumb-drives; it's estimated it would add up to €12 ($16) to the cost of Apple's top-spec iPad or Android tablets. However, because Windows is classed as a "full" OS rather than a mobile one like iOS or Android, it escapes the taxation.

Archos Arnova $200 netbook not worth the money

Archos Arnova $200 netbook not worth the money

Given Archos' weren't exactly responsible for the design and manufacture of their last netbook, the Archos 10, we're guessing they haven't had much of a hand in the new Archos Arnova bar the badging.  The 10.2-inch ultraportable is already on sale for the bargain price of £126.75 ($202) through Amazon, though there are understandably a few compromises made in order to hit that figure.

Archos A101 Internet Tablet clears FCC ahead of US launch

Archos A101 Internet Tablet clears FCC ahead of US launch

Archos' 101 Internet Tablet has cleared the FCC as the A101IT, though a confidentiality agreement has seen all but the label positioning on a wireframe diagram hidden from our curious eyes.  Announced at IFA 2010 - you can read our hands-on report here - the 10-inch slate has a capacitive touchscreen, 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 3D OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics accelerator and WiFi b/g/n.

Though Archos' larger internet tablets grabbed our attention first, we spent some time playing with the French company's three smaller models too: the Archos 28, 32 and 43.  Ranging in size from 2.8-inches QVGA, through 3.2-inches WQVGA, to 4.3-inches FWVGA, the three palm-sized tablets are Archos' attempt at hybrid PMP/MIDs, hitting price points from $99.99 to $149.99 to $199.

Archos 70 and Archos 101 hands-on [Video]

Archos weren't short of new internet tablets for IFA 2010, though it's their Archos 70 and Archos 101 which stood out when we stopped by their booth earlier today.  Measuring in at 7- and 10-inches respectively, the two Android slates (running 2.1 right now, but set to launch with 2.2 Froyo) are certainly thin and reasonable feature-packed, each toting a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 3D OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics accelerator and WiFi b/g/n.
