Monday, start of the week, and it started out great, as my hunger for ‘tech’ info was replenished by as brands like Archos, Asus, BenQ, CoolerMaster, JBL, Powercolor, Kingston, Razer and SanDisk showed-off their wares in Astoria.
They showcased their products to online publishers who got closer look on their latest products in local stores.
Archos started-off with their tablet lines. What most people don’t know is that, Archos is not new in the industry anymore. (As I used Archos in my marketing sample before)
Personally, I think they have a good potential acquiring a good number of shares in the local market on tablets, given the specs and the price (although, I have to test it first to really know more about its actual capabilities). Their new G9 Tablets, powered by Android Honeycomb 3.2, are expected to get appreciation from the crowd wanting to get a hold of tablets at a more affordable rates. Their 10-inch tablet, which has up to 1.5Ghz dual core processor, is tagged at Php 19,995.
The Archos G9 Tablets boast of:
- Wifi capable
- HD video playback capability (720p)
- Mini HDMI Video output
- Built in Mic
- Capacitive Touch Screen Technology
Another thing that Archos is proud of, its 3G slot. It has a unique 3G dongle-slot. So if you decide later on to use 3G, it wouldn’t be a worry, since an Archos dongle will cost only around Php 3,000 (if I’m not mistaken), compared to the current tables that only features wifi only, and it would cost, literally, another to tablet, should you decide to use 3G later on.
Plus, their new tablets hold 250G HDD (equivalent to 40 HD movies). Hmmm… Sounds impressive to me. (Although, I really have to test it first to see how Archos tablets can manage the actual usage) But it can definitely be a choice if you are to buy a tablet.
