Archos announces Arnova 9 G2 tablet

The second generation of budget Archos tablets expands to the 9.7-inch form factor and includes a single-core 1GHz CPU with an 8GB SSD
Allen Ngo,

French consumer electronics company Archos has released a number of budget Android tablets over the last year or so, including the Arnova 7, Arnova 8 and Arnova 9. Now, an update to the Arnova 9 is about to arrive as the Arnova 9 G2.

The 9.7-inch tablet will have a 4:3 1024x768 resolution IPS display, single-core 1GHz Cortex-A8 CPU, front-facing camera, accelerometer, 8GB SSD and run Android Gingerbread out of the box. Connectivity options include a micro USB 2.0 port as well as a full-size USB 2.0 port, microSD reader and 802.11g WiFi. The tablet is also 3G ready and should be compatible with the Archos G9 3G Stick. The amount of RAM and the expected battery runtime are not listed under the official tech specs, but Arnova promises video playback of 1080p videos at up to 30fps.

Physically, the Archos 9 G2 is only about 12.5mm (0.49 inches) thick and weighs 630 grams (1.39 pounds). Pricing and availability of the tablet are unknown, but somewhere under $250 would be our best guess. Check out the official product page for the Archos tablet here for more information.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
