Three provides award-winning Mobile Broadband and has the UK’s biggest 3G network – offering ARCHOS customers with the best 3G access in the UK. The agreement will make available to users of the next generation ARCHOS G9 tablets (ARCHOS 101 G9, ARCHOS 80 G9) with out of the box Mobile Broadband on Pay-As-You-Go from Three.
ARCHOS now offers its users with a 3G stick (a solution for laptops designed to fit into the back of any ARCHOS G9 tablets), to enable its customers to stay connected on the go or at home.
Archos G9 tablets will ship in September, as Archos announced less then a month ago.
The two resently introduced tablet models of Archos – ARCHOS 101 G9 (10.1-inch) and ARCHOS 80 G9 (8-inch) are powered by 1.5 GHz OMAP 4 CPU. Archos compared OMAP4460 (the Texas Instruments’ dual-core processor) and stated, that it’s 50% more powerful than the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. In addition, the tablets have a 250Gb Seagate 2.5 HDD, WiFi and 3G. The 3G solution (offered as a Pay-As-You-Go Plan), is a standard 3G USB stick ($49 USD), which is designed to fit all the G9 tablets. The devices will run Google’s Android 3.1 Honeycomb (probably updated to Android 3.2 in September). Both will be able to decode (1080p H264 High Profile videos) and play movies in 1080p resolution through their HDMI output.
