Well would you look at that, a couple o' Android tablets for you to be glancing at. These tablets were foretold back on the 1st of this month and foreseen for months. What we've got here is two tablets, one of them an 8-inch tablet by the name of 80 G9, the other a 10-inch tablet by the name of 101 G0. Both of these tablets have Android 3.1, both of them have the Android Market inside out of the box, and both have the option to work with a 250GB hard drive.

This harddrive, one of the two most fabulous features on these tablets, add approximately 3mm to either of the basic versions. There's also a 3G USB-based stick that you can work with here, the image below showing you how you'll be jamming it in to your cool new tablet. Both of these tablets are ready to roll on 3G, though no specific carriers have been announced thus far and the option of adding the stick, for $49 that is, will give you a Pay as you Go plan. Then as you may already know, these two tablets mark the first Android tablets made by Archos have had access to Google's Android Market.

Both of these tablets are packing the same dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP 4 processors at 1.5 GHz, and both of them have a - yes I love this - kickstand installed on the basic hardware. Both devices will be playing 1080p videos in any of the following formats with an "optional plugin": AVI, MP4, MOV, 3GP, MPG, PS, TS, VOB, MKV, FLV, RM, RMVB, ASF, and WMV. The displays are thus: 80 G9 with a 1024×768 pixel resolution 4:3 ratio display, the 101 G9 having a 1280x800 pixel resolution 16:10 ratio display. Both devices have HDMI out that's also capable of outputting 1080p.

Plug it in!

The standard versions of both of these tablets, if you don't decide on the magnificently large 250GB hard drive addition, will contain 16 GB of flash storage. Have a look here at a teaser video as presented by Archos:

And check out these surprisingly affordable prices: the 8-inch tablet starts at $279 and the 10.1-inch tablet starts at $349. Fantastic! Both tablets will be available at the end of September. Plug and play - rock and roll! Can't wait to check em out!

    Are you sure 16gb is the flash capacity.. I thought they were coming with 32gb…
    Nevertheless, I’d like to see 500gb capacity.. at least in the 10″ form factor becuase there always has to be an incentive to “GO LARGE”.  Better yet.. 500gb in the 8″ and 750gb in the 10″ form factors. They’re already pushing beyon 1tb in the laptop 2.5″ form factor, so 750gb seems about right for the micro hard drive capacities (1.5″). Would also like to see a 5″ replacement for the Archos 43 before next year!
