Seagate offers hard disk drive storage for ARCHOS G9 tablets


Seagate announced that it is delivering hard disk drive
storage for the world’s first handheld tablet computers with hard drives. The
ARCHOS G9 8- and 10-inch tablets, feature the Seagate Momentus Thin hard drive,
a speedy notebook drive with a super-slim 7mm profile.


The performance and capacity of the Momentus Thin drive
are the perfect complement for the cutting-edge speed of the ARCHOS G9 family of tablets that features the industry’s fastest dual-core 1.5 GHz
processor and, on the strength of the Momentus Thin drive, gives users 250GB of
capacity, eight times more than a standard 32GB tablet but at the same cost,
making the ARCHOS G9 one of the tablet industry’s best cost-performance values.


the 8-inch product, and ARCHOS 101 G9, the 10-inch model, are scheduled to be
available in late September. Estimated MSRPs for the ARCHOS 80 G9 and ARCHOS
101 GB tablets are $279 and $349, respectively.


Seagate continues to break new ground in
the development of products and technologies that matter most to customers by
delivering the Momentus Thin drive for these powerful ARCHOS tablets.


“The Momentus Thin drive gives tablet buyers a
compelling option, providing great storage capacity and performance that
dovetail with the processing power of the new ARCHOS products for great Android
and multimedia experiences,” said Rocky Pimentel, chief sales and marketing
officer, Seagate.
