Archos latest G9 tablets will be available for pre-sale starting September 20 on the company’s website. 

The devices will be offered in 8-inch and 10.1-inch versions, with the largest tablet expected to pack 250GB of storage. Archos will offer both with an A9 dual-core OMAP 4 processor from Texas Instruments, a feature that Archos believes will provide the slates with 50 percent more raw computational power over other tablets available. 

The $299 Android Honeycomb-based 8-inch tablet will come with 8GB of onboard storage. A basic version will run a 1GHz processor, while the A9 version will ship with a 1.5GHz dual-core, which will be offered online and in stores come October. This version will come in an 8-inch design with 16GB for $329 or 250GB for $369. The larger 10.1-inch edition of the tablet will be sold for $399 with 16GB or $469 for 250GB. 

While the 8-inch G9 slate will sport a 1024 x 769 display, the 10.1-inch tablet will rock a 1280 x 800 screen resolution. The G9 collection of tablets from Archos will all include a Seagate Momentus Thin hard drive with a 4GB flash caching system. The tablets will also be available starting September 30 on Amazon, Newegg and other online retailers.
