Archos 80 G9 for sale at $269 through Amazon and Circuit City

Posted by Charbax on October 12th, 2011

I just checked the latest price on the Archos 80 G9 tablet, and wow, it seems to be just $269 now on this link:

It currently says:

Ships from and sold by CircuitCity.

But you can order it right there on

The Archos 101 G9 1Ghz is also now for sale on for $369 at this URL:

Consider that the 1.2Ghz Turbo version with 16GB and 250GB hard drive will also start becoming available later this month. And that the 1.5Ghz version should start being for sale around December normally. The faster Turbo versions having more storage will obviously be a little bit more expensive.

I hope to get my Archos G9 tablet within a few days, and then I’ll post my full video-review. For now you can see my short overview video that I filmed of early pre-release prototypes of these tablets last July:

    Plus $5 for shipping. I see itself is selling it for $280. So less than the $299 we were expecting?

    I am interested to see where the 8 and the 10 will be on battery life.

    Hope you like your 80 when you get it. I just hope mine just comes back from RMA with a working touchscreen. 

    My guess on all the touchscreen problems with the 80 are due to door in the back for the USB connector. It is like placing a door in a wall, it makes the wall much weaker. Similarly it looks like the new case design of the G9 series didn’t put in near enough physical supports to handle the cutout.At least to me.

    I think it’s normal for first batches of new products to have about 5% or less defective units, especially at the screen area, sorry for you that you were an unlucky one.

    I plan to get either the 8″ or 10″ model or I should say I was… what Im wondering is will they have an update to Icecream since its right around the corner for being released? or should I wait the month or two to get a tablet with Icecream on it? this being a fan site and being listed on Archos site I figure someone here would be able to get the answer, if they find out an update will come out for it then I am all over the turbo version when it comes out since its not to much more over the non. :) Thanks guys for your help.

    That’s a good question.  I’m considering the 101 myself.  I think I’ll wait till mid November.  After researching several different tablets I have come back to the Archos and I hope that it holds up to the great reveiws I’ve seen.  Thanks !

  • Archos
