Archos has recently officially announced a US ship date and price for its Archos 9 tablet PC. First introduced in July, the Windows 7 Starter Edition-powered tablet will be available on October 22nd for $499, in either black or white exterior colors. Official specs of the device include a 1.1GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and its namesake 9-inch, 1024x900 resolution resistive touchscreen.
A Bluetooth connection is also integrated, and there are two antennas that receive DVB=T TV broadcasts with diversity reception when the tablet is used in Europe. Otherwise, users get a 60GB hard drive and a battery that should power the device for four hours per charge. The Archos 9 will weigh about 1.8lbs. [via UMPCPortal]
