ARCHOS G9 Tablets Claim to be the Fastest, Price and Launch Date Announced

Archos G9
Today, ARCHOS unveiled their line of G9 tablets, which will be available this September in two sizes; 8-inch (80) and 10.1-inch (101).  Both ship with Android 3.0, an OMAP 4 processor with an ARM Cortex dual-core A9 running at 1.5 GHz, and Seagate’s 250GB hard drive.

By default both sizes are limited to WiFi connectivity, unless an optional 3G USB stick ($49), which inserts into a concealed USB port, is purchased.  ARCHOS doesn’t waste anytime pointing out that this 3G stick can also be paired with a laptop, and used on a pay-as-you-go-plan. An HDMI output insures that full HD video can be fed to an HDTV, while the 8-inch G9 can display a 720p picture on its 1024×768 screen and the 10.1-inch version a 1280×800 display.

Both sizes will cost $279 and $349 respectively.
