Archos 9 priced in the UK, Android powered 5” device in September?

Posted on 06 July 2009 by



archos 9 Trusted Reviews seems to have gotten some info from The Inquirer regarding the upcoming Archos 9 [Portal page] and potentially a new MID device coming after its release. TR says that the Archos 9 will run you £450 ($732 USD) for the 60GB HDD version, or £500 ($813 USD).

Another interesting bit is that there may be an Android powered device from Archos with a 5” screen. I’m going to imagine this would be a MID/PMP, and the first product that pops into my mind is something like the Viliv S5 [Portal page], maybe fitting considering how similar the Archos 9 is to the Viliv X70′s [Portal page] form factor.

    The 5″ Archos will probably be the Android phone that has been rumored since February. It was kind of announced again last month at the Paris event that saw the Archos 9 come to life.

    With that ‘european’ pricing one can think of a trip to the US and buy it overthere. Stupid pricing. Why is everything in Europe much more expensive?

    Because the US doms your life.

    So, a device made in France (ie Europe), is being sold to their neighbours (who stopped their country becoming a Nazi foothold) for almost twice the price the Americans (who almost sided with Nazi Germany) are paying. Well, they can keep their overpriced, bad after serviced (seriously, Google Archos after service support), products.

    I sort of understand why American companies do the $/£ same thing, but a European company… That is serious gouging.

    Will. Not. Buy. Tony.
