Pre-orders start for Archos G9 Honeycomb tablets this month

We first learned of the Archos G9 tablets back in June. At the time, we were very happy to hear about the dual core 1.5GHz processor and the beefy 250GB hard drive. Now, you can start pre-ordering the device.

There was a bump in price announced shortly after their unveiling, but it seems like that bump is going to be the last one. As a quick refresher, the cheapest of the bunch is the Archos 80 G9 with a 1GHz processor and 8GB of storage for $299. That’s with an 8-inch screen and Honeycomb under the hood.

The real star, of course, is when you get up to the Archos 101 G9 with the 1.5GHz processor and 250GB hard drive for $469. Both of these upgrades, as well as a 16GB flash option, are available on the 8-inch variant as well with prices fitting accordingly. The 16GB Archos 80 G9 is priced at $329 and comes with the faster processor. Move up to the hard drive and that’s $369. For the 10-inch Archos G9, you don’t get the 8GB option, but the 16GB flash model is available at $399.

Pre-orders are being taken now with shipment expected by the end of the month It’s nice to see Archos finally embrace Honeycomb and full Android Market support. They’ve been at the tablet game for much longer than most other companies. How this will sell compared to the Eee Pads and Xooms of the world remains to be seen.
