    Archos today announced a pair of new (and relatively affordable) Honeycomb tablets -- the Archos 80 G9 and Archos 101 G9. Both feature Android 3.1, a dual-core OMAP 4 processor running at 1.5GHz, and a 250GB Seagate hard drive.The Archos 80 G9 -- which runs just $279 -- is an 8-inch device with a 1024x768 resolution and 4:3 aspect ratio. The Archos 101 G9 -- $retailing at just $349 -- sports a 10.1-inch screen and a 1280x800 resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio.

    In addition, both tablets can take advantage of Archos' new 3G stick -- a USB stick that, for an extra $49 turns the Wifi tablets into pay-as-you-go 3G devices.The Archos 80 G9 and Archos 101 G9 will be available at the end of September and will be featured at the IFA conference earlier in the month in Berlin.

    At that price, I'm guessing the 250-Gb hard drive is NOT an SSD? I don't know how long a mechanical drive would hold up with all the tilting and jolting a tablet usually gets.
