1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Archos has unveiled their new Gen9 tablets, continuing to improve upon the experience of their Gen8 Tablets, by including Android Honeycomb (Android 3.1), full Google Market access, a full 250 GB HDD, 720p front-facing webcam, and by including an option to have a 3G dongle that fits perfectly into a slot on the side. The 3G dongle (if purchased) also doubles as an Air-Card for a laptop, with Windows or Mac capabilities.


    For pricing:
    The 80 (8" screen) will be around $279, and the 101 (10.1" screen) will be around $349.

    Hard drive will be Seagate's 7mm Momentus Thin, so it'll fit all 250 GB in a slim package.

    The one thing I'm worried about is RAM. The Gen8 tablets only had 256 Megs of RAM. It made for a slightly sluggish UI experience, although the graphics support was second to none in a device that cheap with that low of RAM, I personally had NO problem playing Wave Blazer or Turbofly 3D on my own Archos 70 IT w/250 GB HDD (Gen8).
