Archos Arnova 9 G2 tablet arrives in US for buyers on a budget

Archos Arnova 9 G2

In 2011 we saw tablet sales figures rise, particularly in the 4th quarter around the holidays. Motorola moved over a million units last year. Hoping to capture the hearts and minds of the budget-conscience techies, Archos has engineered a new device known as the Arnova 9 G2. With a $250 price tag, it looks to be a viable option for those not wanting to spend a ton of money. Specs listed below.

  • 9.7 inch (1024 x 768) IPS display
  • 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor
  • 4GB of internal storage
  • microSD card slot
  • USB port (nice!)
  • Front-facing camera

Now for the bad news. Out of the gate, the Arnova 9 G2 will be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with no mention of a software upgrade at a later date. Beyond that, the tablet will have Archos’ own AppsLib app store instead of the usual tried and true Android Market.

Still for those looking for a basic tablet for internet browsing and media, this would be a pretty sweet option, particularly for the price. If you’re interested, you can pick up the Archos Arnova 9 G2 at B&H or at PC Richard & Son, who currently has the tablet on sale for $229.99.

Think it’s a good buy? Be sure to let us know in the comments below!

    Archos is extremely bad with updates. The original tablets that start selling end 2010 (!) are still runing on 2.2: garbage! Don’t buy Archos, it might look nice now, but in a few months you will already be hopelessly behind and Archos will not come with descend updates.
