Archos 9 release announced at IDF, October 22nd, $499

archos 9 The title says most of what you need to know. Archos has announced the official launch for the Archos 9, which will be on October 22nd in two colors (white and black), and the unit will run $499! Here are the specs:

  • Atom Z510 1.1GHz CPU
  • 1024×600 9” resistive touchscreen
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 60GB HDD
  • Windows 7 Starter
  • 4 hours of battery life
  • 800 grams

I have to say that I’m really impressed with that price. I couldn’t see the Archos 9 going anywhere if it were $600+, and $499 is a great surprise.
