If you have a need for copious amounts of storage on a mobile device the new Archos 80 G9 series Honeycomb tablet would probably be a great choice. They have just released the 250 GB version of this 8″ slate and amazingly it’s still priced much lower than competing 8-10″ Honeycomb tablets with only 16GB of internal storage.
What makes this even better is while paying a bit more for the extra storage you’ll also get the 80 G9 “Turbo” which is their faster 1.2 GHz dual-core version of their latest line of tablets. Basically we get an 8″ 1024 x 768 display rocking Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet with a dual-core 1.2 GHz TI OMAP processor, 1GB of RAM, and 250 gigabytes of storage all for only $369. While most tablets have 16 or 32GB of flash storage this will have the huge hard drive. If you are concerned about speed and read times Archos claims to have a highly intelligent caching system to keep things quick, smooth, and stable — but didn’t comment on weight.
Archos might not have the best build quality when it comes to Android tablets or the thinnest, but they update often and when necessary and have a pretty solid following based on their low price budget-minded lineup of tablets. With a promise to bring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to Archos tablets soon, and already showing it off on video running great this could actually be one awesome all around device.
Having HDMI-out, 250 GB of storage, a kickstand, and soon to be Android 4.0 ICS all for only $369 this could potentially be an awesome deal — especially for multimedia lovers. The newer 250 GB model is available now from Archos.com and you can find plenty of details and the link below.
