Archos Windows tablet gets CPU upgrade

SSD too

Archos 9

Archos has updated its Archos 9 Windows 7 tablet with a faster Intel Atom CPU - 1.2GHz this time, up from 1.1GHz - and a 32GB SSD in place of the previous model's HDD.

The gadget runs Windows 7 Starter - the netbook-centric version of the OS. The display is netbook-like too: it's 8.9in with a 1024 x 600 resolution.

Wireless is limited to 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0. There's a 1.3Mp webcam on board.

Archos said it wants £400 for the Archos 9, but that's for a version with a 60GB HDD. The company didn't say how much extra the SSD will add to that price.
