When ARCHOS first announced its upcoming Android 3.2-powered G9 tablets back in June, we were surprised at the amount of raw power tucked away under the chassis of the duo. A bit has changed since then in way of both price and hardware spec -- but it's still not a huge deviation from the original announcement.

80 G9

The 80 G9, named such for its 8-inch 1024x768 display, will come in three variants, each a step up from the last.

If you're looking for a cheap tablet experience, then look no further - as long as you're a fan of Archos on Facebook, then you can grab the Archos 70 for $190, and it even includes a free case. Sure, it may not be the hottest thing in the tablet world right now, but for less than you would normally pay for some eBook readers, it's still hard to beat this deal.

So, two new tablets from Archos weren't enough for you? Apparently, it wasn't for them either - enter two new products that put Android in places that we haven't really seen it before: on your radio, and on your... home phone. Yeah, it took me a moment to digest the idea of a home phone as well; I haven't used one of those in years.

With that in mind, let's take a look at the 35 Smart Home Phone first.

When it comes to Android tablets, we've become accustomed to seeing near-identical specs for each one: 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16/32GB of storage. While those specs are still pretty awesome, Archos is looking to change the game completely with its newly announced 80 G9 and 101 G9 tablets. If you haven't already guessed, the biggest difference between the two tabs is the screen size, with the former offering 8 inches at 1024x768, and the latter with the more common 10.1-inch 1280x800 display.

Historically (and generally speaking), Archos' tablet offerings have failed to impress. That may all be about to change, though: the company has unofficially revealed some details about their upcoming Gen 9 tablet, and at least on paper, it looks like quite a doozy.

The Gen 9 will be powered by a 1.6GHz ARM A9 CPU, which is the same underlying processor used in the Apple A5 (iPad 2) CPU, as well as Nvidia's Tegra 2 and upcoming Kal-El CPUs, among others.

Nope, the Archos 70 wasn't the death of the good (or not so good) ol' Archos 7 Home Tablet, apparently. The manufacturer has just let revision 2 of the Archos 7 loose, and while it's still got a resistive touchscreen (ugh), its CPU has been upgraded to an 800 MHz Rockchip processor (the older model was powered by a 600 MHz chip), and it now comes with Android 2.1 (as opposed to Android 1.6 on the original).

The Archos 5 has never been the most popular Android tablet - it has its plusses and minuses, but the 500GB version at almost half off that popped up on Amazon today may make you forgive and forget some of its flaws. Considering that with the Market hack, Archos 5 gets full access to the Android Market, this little device could end up being the largest portable media hub you can get for the price.

If for some reason you were lusting after the Archos 43 upon ogling the company's lineup of Froyo tablets, good news, you can buy one right now from Archos, for a tidy sum of $250 (this is for the 16GB model, the 8GB model is not currently available). What does a quarter of a grand get you? We've provided Archos' full tech specs at the end of the post, as they're quite lengthy.

While they may not quite have the buzz that Samsung's Galaxy Tab is generating, there has been still been plenty of interest in Archos's 2010 line of Android tablets - particularly among those who like to hold on to their money. Archos's pricing has traditionally been one of the hardware's most attractive points, and this year's "Generation 8" is no exception.

L-to-R: Archos 101, 70, 43, 32, 28 - aka Generation 8

Now Archos is adding another feather to the Gen.

Sure, it's no Galaxy Tab, but the Archos 32, which just began shipping today, does offer some bang for your buck.

With specs like:

  • a 3.2 inch 400x240 resistive touchscreen
  • an 800MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi
  • BlueTooth 2.1 + EDR
  • a G-sensor

it's not exactly at the top of the Android tablet heap (or even the Archos tablet heap), but for $149.99, what more could you ask?
