Archos G9 Tablets up for Pre-Order now


The Honeycomb flavoured G9 series Archos tablets are coming to Australia this month. Now whilst Archos’Australian supplier i-Tech international has a number of places to source an Archos tablet from, they have advised that the first supplier to receive stock here will be minidisc.com.au who indeed have pre-order pages up for the Archos A101 and the G80. Hit the break for pricing and specifications

The 10″ version of the Archos G9 – the A101 – comes with either 16Gb storage which costs $469, or 8Gb of storage for $429 (remember shipping is charged on top as well). Both of the A101 models are due to ship by the end of the month.

  • 10.1″ LCD Screen @ 1280 x 800 : 149PPI

The 8″ version of the Archos G9 the G80 also comes with option for 16Gb of storage for $390 or $355 for 8Gb of storage (remember shipping is charged on top as well), the G80 is due to ship sometime in the next 2 weeks.

  • Kickstand

  • Dimensions : 226 mm x 155 mm x 11.7 mm @ 465gAndroid Honeycomb

Having used Archos products in the past I was pretty impressed with the build quality and I’m keen to get a hold of one of these to see if they have continued this, I’m also interested in seeing how the 8″ tablet form factor goes. Pricing wise they seem okay compared to other Honeycomb tablets, if you hit up the i-Tech international webpage they have a list of other suppliers, but it seems minidisc.com.au are going to be the first to receive stock.
