Archos 9 Windows 7 tablet

Want to see some nice pictures of the Archos 9 Windows 7 tablet? Let me refer you to CNET in the UK where you can see some incredible photos. Click here for those pictures.

The Archos 9 Tablet is very thin and it looks like a promising ultra-mobile PC (UMPC). Maybe the Amazon Kindle will look like this one day (and maybe it will also run Windows 7 and have a color screen). Until then, I will stick with my Samsung Q1 Ultra and my Lenovo Thinkpad X200 tablets.

Here are the specs for the new Archos 9 tablet PC running Windows 7:
  • Processor: Intel Atom Z515 1.2 GHz
  • Video Chipset: Integrated US15W
  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7
  • System Memory: 1GB (DDR2 400/533) - hope you can upgrade this easily to 2 GB
  • Display: 8.9” touch screen - 1024 x 600 pixels (passive touch, not an active digitizer)
  • HDD: 60GB or 120GB - SSD should also be an option
  • Communication: Ethernet 10/100
  • WiFi: PCI-E interface, 2 Antennas, Support IEEE 802.11b/g
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Optional 3.5G HSUPA - Huawei EM750M 7.2Mbts module
  • Audio: 2 stereo speakers
  • Built-in Microphone
  • Optical Finger Navigation System with Right and Left click buttons
  • 1 USB 2.0 port
  • Audio/headphone output
  • Web cam: Built-in 1.3MP camera
Does it look like it's missing anything? I'd like to see an SD card slot, but that's about it.

  1. I too would like to see an SD card slot. Being able to boot into linux from a memory card would be incredibly useful on this thing (provided the hardware is supported, that is). It would be a shame to have all that beauty locked down to Windows 7.
