Those who have been waiting for ARCHOS' 1.5GHz variants of the G9 series of tablets are in luck –  both tablets' "turbo versions" are now shipping from the manufacturer's web store.


For those who may not be familiar with ARCHOS' G9 series of tablets, here are the specs:

  • 1024x768 8" or 1280x800 10.1" display
  • OMAP 4 dual-core processor at 1.5GHz

    ah, archos. they always had such great ideas, but could never quite get it right. i love the fact that they are still trying though ;).

    in 2002, i had an archos media player with the same capacity as the biggest ipod (and half the price), that could, aside from, obviously, playing music, also show photos, play and record video, read and copy your camera's memory card, and connect to your tv via s-video. buggy as hell (actually often a complete nightmare), but so much potential and spirit, damn, i keep rooting for them even ten years later.

    I'm surprised that they're continuing to use HDDs, instead of flash across the board

    are you sure there is 1gb ram in this models?
    the previous models wad only 512mb ram and i couldn't find any indication that it is changed in the turbo models.

    Could you guys do a review of the new version?

    This seems like a perfect tablet =)
    (specially the 8 inch one, a little bigger than 7 inches... sounds perfect)
