We saw the first confirmation of US pricing for Archos' new Honeycomb tablets last week, and now the 8-inch version has an official price tag in the UK, too. Archos' British web store is offering the Archos 80 G9 -- that's the 8-inch version -- for a highly competitive £199.99. At the current exchange rate, that comes to $314, just $15 more than the US price, which is something of a rarity for tablets. It's also about half of what you'd expect to pay for a 10-inch Honeycomb tablet like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
In addition to the 8-inch display, the 80 G9 gives you a 1GHz dual-core OMAP4 CPU, 8GB of internal storage and Android 3.2. The product page doesn't say how much RAM the device ships with, but we heard at Archos' press event back in June that low-end models would have 512MB, compared to the usual gigabyte found in most Honeycomb tablets.
Find out more about the 80 G9 and its big brother, the 101 G9 in our hands-on report from Archos' London press event.
