ARCHOS is at it again, improving their tablet lineup and pushing the boundaries of slate-style Android computing. While they typically don’t get as much hype as the big ticket brands like Motorola and Samsung, ARCHOS has managed to push out a few serviceable Android tablets over the past year, even if build quality has suffered at times. The latest effort, their Gen 9 series of tablets, sees a 1.6GHz dual-core ARM A9 CPU driving the action, which at the time ranks as one of the most powerful processor in an Android portable.
ARCHOS is also doing work within the Android software to support hard disk drives, and will feature up to 250GB of storage available in their Gen 9 series. You can also expect a 3G radio to be present. The whole shabang comes running on Android 3.0 Honeycomb, and should launch in June for 400 euros.
