ARCHOS introduces a revolutionary PC Tablet, the ARCHOS 9. The ARCHOS 9 combines the performance of a laptop with breathtaking aesthetics, excellent ergonomics and a touch screen. No need to bring your laptop everywhere: you can now do all your daily tasks comfortably on the go with this portable PC. The ARCHOS 9 will surely fit in your bag as it's no bigger than the keyboard of a Netbook and only 17 mm thick. You will be able to check your emails, type text and have a look to your social network anywhere, just like on a portable PC. The black stainless steel body gives a very classy aspect to the device.

they should have given this more hype than the iPad

they should have given this more hype than the iPad



They did a couple of years ago when this sort of thing first came out, remember project origami, 'viral marketing' and all that? The iPad only got hype because people thought it was going to be something interesting, if we'd known in advance it was just another ARM tablet hardly anyone would have paid it any attention.

so it's the size of a netbook but with half the memory and power but twice the price?
not voted cos it may well be a good price but it's not good value

Yeah. And watching the reviews on YouTube the thing is dreadfully slow. The iPad maybe be beautiful nonsense but at least it's fast

the price point of this is just ridiculous, why spend £400+ when u can get a netbook which would be faster and have a bigger screen for half the price!

For £400+ price, I would go for apple ipad. This Archos is definitely not a value for money.

Show me a netbook weighing 800g and with a touchscreen for £210 then.

IPad? Fast? Hardly. It's rumoured to be using a Cortex A9 processor, the sucessor to the one in the iPhone so the Atom Z510 is likely to beat it in all benchmarks - those that it'll run with the likely limited amount of memory it's got anyway.

Not fast? When it takes only 1-2 seconds to launch a browser on the ipad compared to about 10 seconds to launch firefox on the archos 9. I'd say it was fast
