Archos announced a slew of new products yesterday, and one of them, which we failed to cover, was the Archos 9 Internet tablet.  It measures just 16mm thin and includes an 80-120GB HDD, Intel ATOM Z515 processor, WiFi, 8.9-inch 1024×600 touchscreen, 2 antennas to receive DVBT TV, webcam, Bluetooth and a 3 hour rechargeable battery.  Unfortunately, it runs Windows 7 which will probably prove to be taxing on a device of this size – I’d want a custom UI to do the basics.  We’re hearing that it will launch for about €500 ($700 US), but nothing is set in stone at this point.  Check the video after the ‘leap’.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
