Archos 9 Internet Tablet with Windows 7 Starter

Updated on March 8, 2011

 

A busy lifestyle is not a prerequisite to owning an Archos 9 Internet Tablet. However, if you do have a busy lifestyle the Archos 9 Internet Tablet is a way to keep up with the many tasks you encounter every day. A Smartphone is great for communication, checking email, taking digital photos and staying organized but productivity tasks are limited at best. As a small business owner there are software requirements that can only be utilized on a PC or MAC. Laptops are the typical answer but they can be heavy and cumbersome to carry around. The Archos 9 Internet Tablet runs Windows 7 Starter, weighs less than two pounds, and measures a bit thicker than one-half inch (.67 inches) and the Capacitive Touchscreen is useable without an external keyboard and mouse. The fold out stand located on the back of the Archos provides various angles to work or read by.

 

Let’s just say you want a lightweight device to use on an everyday basis. The Archos 9 Internet Tablet has a 60GB hard drive, it can be connect to the Internet via a Wi-Fi network (802.11 b/g), Fast Ethernet (10/100), and it can be tethered to a compatible cell phone. It plays nice with other devices via Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and a USB 2.0 port. A 1.3 megapixel webcam and integrated microphone makes communicating with business associates or friends easy. Battery life is rated for up to 5 hours.

The Archos 9 Internet Tablet fills the gap between a Smartphone and a laptop. Between my iPhone 4 and my iPad I can accomplish most of what I need to on a daily basis while out and about. When I return home to my home office my laptop picks up where they left off. Payroll, government reports and scanning receipts are all important tasks to keep my business running smoothly. Some of those tasks are important whether I am at home or away from home. Recently I traveled to Las Vegas to attend the 2011 CES show and on my return home at nearly midnight I still needed to do payroll for the previous week. The Archos 9 Internet Tablet running Windows 7 Starter would have allowed me to accomplish payroll and the subsequent reports before returning home – saving me valuable sleep time. Even if carrying two devices is not your idea of a good time – carrying an iPad or other Internet tablet along with the Archos 9 Internet Tablet is doable.

 

Archos offers this version of Internet Tablet that runs Windows 7 Starter that costs under $450 as well as multiple versions that run on the Android system that costs much the same.

      Hi joinphp, I appreciate your comment.

      If you compare the price to a netbook or a laptop the Amazon price is pretty resonable at $420.

      I was at the 2011 CES last week and the Internet Tablets there did not run Windows except for Toshiba. The problem is that there is no launch date and the representative said that it may not be launched at all.

      So for anyone looking for a tablet that runs windows there are few choices.
