Archos G9 Tablets official $ USD pricing confirmed

Posted by – September 4, 2011

Archos is releasing the G9 tablets worldwide in the coming weeks, scheduled for global release by the end of September. Here are the official $ USD prices:

Archos 80 G9:
8GB 1Ghz: $299
16GB 1.5Ghz: $329
250GB 1.5Ghz: $369

Archos 101 G9:
8GB 1Ghz: $369
16GB 1.5Ghz: $399
250GB 1.5Ghz: $469

For the confirmation if 8GB 1Ghz versions have 512MB RAM and 16GB and 250GB 1.5Ghz versions have 1GB RAM, you have to wait another few days or weeks for Archos to give us an official confirmation on the RAM capacity. As far as I understand, they may still be testing out the different types of RAM and capacities based on the latest Honeycomb 3.2 software most optimized for the high memory bandwidth of the OMAP4460 processor, to determine which type and capacity of RAM to use. Though these 1.5Ghz tablets are probably right now coming out of those factories so Archos should be able to confirm this at any moment now. Let's try again tomorrow and the day after, when the engineers are not on their week-end break and can give us an answer.

Panasonic HX-WA10 and Panasonic HX-DC10

Posted by – September 4, 2011

Panasonic bought Sanyo about a year ago, while it takes them several months to get all things coordinated within this acquisition, here are the first couple of Sanyo-style camcorders released by Panasonic in the HX-DC10 and the waterproof version in HX-WA10. Hopefully very soon Panasonic will also release the successor to the Sanyo HD2000 form factor with better quality, optics, low light, microphone options, perhaps even some built-in YouTube upload feature.

Coupoint.net $65 1Ghz Single-core HiSilicon ARM Cortex-A9 Android set-top-box

Posted by – September 4, 2011

Here's the first time that I see an Android set-top-box with the new HiSilicon ARM Cortex-A9 Single-core processor made by Huawei. This seems to be a pretty smooth Android set-top-box implementation for the price, though obviously, just as for all other Android set-top-boxes, this will only really be useful once the Google TV software is finally open sourced for ARM Powered devices, which is expected to happen next month when Ice Cream Sandwich is released and open sourced. It's very interesting to see this new HiSilicon ARM Cortex-A9 processor from Huawei.
