Following up on their introduction of the G9 range of Honeycomb tablets back in June (see our hands-on) , Archos has announced that the devices will be available starting September 20. The big news is that the starting price point for these comes in at just $299, the first manufacturer to go under $300. 

For that you get the 8-inch Archos 80 8GB packing an OMAP 4 ARM Cortex A9 dual core processor at 1GHz, Android 3.2, and unlike previous Archos devices these come fully loaded with the official Android Market. 

Pushing on a bit further, the Archos G9 "Turbo" devices will begin to appear later on in the month. These push the OMAP 4 up to a pretty hefty 1.5GHz and will be appearing for sale from September 30. These include the 16GB and 250GB variants of the 80, and the 16GB and 250GB big brothers to the 80, the 10 inch Archos 101. All but the 250GB 101 come in at under $400, which is pretty competitive pricing. 

Check out our hands on with the devices back at the launch event after the jump.
