Archos 80 and 101 G9 Turbo 1.5 GHz Available Now In USby Jason Inofuentes on March 19, 2012 5:09 PM EST
Quick update, to the Archos news we've had rolling lately. US buyers can now pick up the Archos G9 Turbo line of tablets at their promised 1.5 GHz; the US store is now offering the 8" and 10.1" variants for $269 and $329 respectively, with 8GB of NAND on board. These TI OMAP 4460 powered tablets will be our first chance to see what kind of performance can be wrung out of OMAP 4 when pushed to their fastest clock speed. It'll also be curious to see how this new speed affects battery life. The 101 G9 Turbo is also available for $369 with a 250GB HDD, giving you more media storage than you find on some notebooks these days. The specs on this line are impressive when you consider just how much less these tablets are than their competition, many of whom still don't have Android 4.0. We'll have a full review as soon as we can, in the meanwhile prospective buyers should follow the links to the Archos store.
