Archos 101 G9 and 80 G9 Android tablets now shipping

Archos is now shipping two new Android tablets in its G9 series – the Archos 80 G9 and Archos 101 G9. Both devices are loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich goodness.

The Archos 80 G9 boasts a dual core 1.5 GHz processor and eight-inch screen with capacitive touch technology. The screen resolution is 1024 x 768 and the tablet has a front facing camera, which offers videoconferencing capabilities with 720p resolution.

The tablet is available in two configurations: 8 GB of flash storage priced at $269 and a 250 GB version with a small hard drive selling for $369. However, only the 8 GB version is shipping at this point int time.

The tablet – powered by an ARM Cortex A9 processor – is also equipped with HDMI out, integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, and ships for free. Additional specs include an integrated GPS module, microSD card slot, support for 3D gaming with apps from Google Play and support for multiple video/audio/photo formats.

Gadget fans wanting a larger screen can check out the Archos 101 G9 with a 10-inch capacitive touchscreen. The screen resolution is 1280 x 800 and the tablet also offers a 720p front facing camera, along with the same 1.5 GHz multi-core processor and storage options as the Archos 80 tablet.

Essentially, the only real difference between the two tablets is the screen size. The 8 GB version is available now for $329.99, while the 250 GB HD iteration weighs in at $389.99.
