Archos G9 Honeycomb tablet gets a bump in price

It was back in June that we caught our first glimpse of the two Archos G9 Android tablets. We knew about the 250GB hard drive and the Honeycomb under the hood. We were also told about price points and launch windows, but some of that information has now shifted.

The 8-inch Archos 80 G9 was originally slated to have a starting price of $279, but that has now increased to a starting price of $299.99. It’s not a huge jump, to be sure, and it still puts the G9 below a good number of competitors. You still get the speedy 1.5GHz dual core TI OMAP4 processor, after all, which is still faster than most of the mobile processors on the market.

Similarly, the 10-inch Archos 101 G9 was originally pegged at a $349 starting price, but that’s been bumped to $369.99. That’s likely not the version with the 250GB hard drive, so you can expect to pay a further premium for that. In any case, the September launch window still looks like it’s holding true. That gives them plenty of time for another price hike.
