The Archos 9 PC tablet: now available in the UK

First seen late last month, the Windows 7-based device is available to buy now in the UK for £450 ($742/€496). The PC tablet can be bought from PC resellers and direct from Archos, although the manufacturer hasn’t yet updated its website to include the model.

As previously reported, the Archos 9 has an 8.9in, 1024 x 600 touchscreen and is powered by Intel’s 1.2GHz Atom Z515 processor. The gadget also has 1GB of DDR 2 memory, a 60GB HDD and access to 25GB of online storage.

The Archos 9 supports 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connections – but not 3G – and data can be transferred over Bluetooth 2.1 or USB 2.0.

Thinking of buying the Archos 9? Be sure to read Register Hardware’s thoughts on the machine following our recent fondle with it. ®
