ARCHOS raise the game
ARCHOS are proud to present their 3rd generation of Android powered tablets, retaining their fantastic balance of power and affordability. The ARCHOS G9 Tablets are their most powerfull tablets to date thanks to their 3 years of Internet Tablet experience. The ARCHOS G9 Tablets are powered by Android 3.1 Honeycomb which is tailor made for tablet applications. G9 Tablets are designed to maximize your media and Android experience whether at home or on the move.
It's all in the processor, brains and beauty!
You'll find most current generation Android tablets are using a 1 GHz dual core nVidia Tegra 2 processor but ARCHOS have partnered with Texas Instruments to boost the performance range offered by the current family of OMAP 4 smart multi core processors. G9 tablets will be available in Classic and Turbo models, giving you the choice between a 1 GHz processor, 1.2 GHz processor.
By combining the power of the OMAP 4 dual-core processor with Android 3.2 'Honeycomb', multitasking has never been smoother on an ARCHOS. Switching between your open apps at the flick of a finger, with dozens of open web pages or flash videos, your ARCHOS G9 tablet has the power under the bonnet to handle it all with ease.
Due to the OMAP 4 processor the ARCHOS G9 tablet brings you a faster web experience, loading web pages faster than on the iPad 2 or any nVidia Tegra2 powered tablets. ARCHOS G9 tablets also include Adobe Flash 10.3 support for the full web experience.
As most films and most encoding software use the H.264 High Profile codec for full HD 1080p videos, it's important to be able to read them smoothly. Although standard nVidia Tegra 2 powered tablets are only able to read H.264 High Profile videos at 720p, and even then it's a choppy experience, the ARCHOS G9 tablet with the powerful Texas Instruments OMAP 4 dual core processor is able to read H.264 High Profile in Full HD 1080p smoothly and easily at over 30fps.
Keeping it mobile! (available seperately)
ARCHOS have designed their add on 3G USB stick to not only to be useable with any Mac or Windows PC but it is cunningly shaped to fit perfectly into the back of the G9 Tablet so once inserted you don't even know it's there. While most other tablets cost a small fortune to upgrade to a 3G model at time of purchase, ARCHOS is bringing you a world of flexibility with the G9 3G stick giving you the choice to add it to your G9 tablet at a later date should you require it. Accepting any standard SIM Card, ARCHOS has selected affordable pay as you go data plans letting you use your G9 3G Stick straight out of the box whether on your tablet or your PC. In the UK ARCHOS has partnered with Three bringing you a Three pay as you go 3G SIM card bundled with your ARCHOS G9 3G Stick. With the Archos Connect application on your tablet you can top up your pay as you go credit straight from your G9 tablet anytime and anywhere.
Keeping it sweet with 'honeycomb'
