Android 3.0 paired with spinning storage
Archos has announced that it will unveil its Generation 9 tablets on June 23, at a special event to take place at the Ritz Hotel in Paris. The France-based company recently teased the ninth-generation devices, which will be based on Android 3.0 with customizations for HDD storage. All of the Gen 9 tablets are said to be the first to utilize a dual-core 1.6GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor, besting the 1GHz offerings that currently dominate the field.
The hard drives are expected to give the tablets an edge when comparing storage capacity with overall price. Archos suggests its 250GB options will be comparable in price to other tablets using just 32GB of flash storage.
The company has yet to provide images or a full list of specs for the Gen 9 offerings. [via Archos Lounge]
