Archos and TigerDirect build cheap, custom tablets for publishers

It was estimated in 2009 that if the New York Times sent every one of its paying subscribers a free Amazon Kindle, they would still save half the cost of physically printing and delivering the newspaper every day. It looks like Archos and TigerDirect are taking that thought experiment into the real world. They've begun a program that lets publishers customize and brand an Android tablet to their subscribers' needs, then subsidize the cost of the tablet for cheap, efficient e-reading.

Archos 80 G9 Hands-on and Unboxing [Video]

We've got products coming out of our ears this week here at Android Community, the newest of which is the Archos 80 G9, a lovely new Honeycomb tablet sitting itself up to compete with the now-saturated tablet market here in the USA. This tablet has a unique shape and size, feels just divine to hold with one or two hands, and does indeed have a built-in kickstand to allow you to do your everyday work and play with complete ease. Will this tablet drown in the sea, or will it have a fighting chance at taking a sizable bite out of the fledgeling Android tablet market?

Archos G9 tablet gets price and ship date

Back in late June, we spent a bit of time with the Archos G9 tablet. At the time, we knew all there was to know about the Archos G9 and its sibling with a vague launch date of "this fall" and a price pegged at $279. We know for instance that the G9 will run Android 3.1 and will be offered with up to 250GB of storage. The tablets also both have the option of a 3G USB dongle to get mobile broadband on the go.
