IDF 2009: Hands on with the Archos 9PCtablet

Last night Legit Reviews got to spend some time with ARCHOS and got a hands on look at the recently announced 9PCtablet (tablet PC). The ARCHOS 9 pushes the boundaries of one might consider the future of netbooks, as this Intel Atom powered tablet PC has some features that might just leave you wanting one!

The ARCHOS 9 that we had a chance to actually use featured an Intel ATOM Z510 processor, 1GB of system memory, a 60 GB hard disk drive (HDD), and Bluetooth to tether wireless accessories. The ARCHOS 9 was running Microsoft Windows 7 Starter, which will be officially released to the public next month. The retail version of the ARCHOS 9 will have a faster Intel Atom Z515 processor though, so if you want specifics on what is inside here is a list of the specifications.

Hey, I was wondering if you had a chance to draw with this? I'm an artist and would love to get my hands on a tablet that I can sketch with. None of these tablets tell us what the pressure sensitivity levels they have. Any insight here? if not this one, any tablets you hear of that may be good for the artist?

I've had Archos devices in the past. None with a windows os though.

$499 is a bargain for a good tablet. More than a netbook but twice the power of any smartphone. Lots of storage and windows 7. Add google voice or skype and I might end up sleeping with this under my pillow.
