Archos G9 Tablets coming to UK in September starting at £199
Want the cheapest capable honeycomb tablet? Then these are your babies. The G9 tablets come in two varieties, an 8 inch and a 10 inch models. Furthermore there are two types of storage available; the usual flash based storage found in iPads but also a hard disk, much like that found in your desktop pc, just scaled down a bit. So you decide whether you want storage, or speed, after all although not a slouch the hard disk cannot keep up with a solid piece of flash memory!
