I thought the price was in the £250-£290 region for the 10.1 inch tablet.
The £200 price tag was for the smaller 8".

Is the 199 including VAT? this site seems to suggest the cheapest will be 249. Also do you have the price for the 10.1 1.5GHZ tablet as well please?

Thanks

Yes is does include VAT and the £199.99 version is the 8GB 1GHz version as the 1.5GHz don't come out until 2012 and the 16GB comes out on 1st Oct, also the 8GB version is now available for order on Archos's website :)

The 10.1 version starts from £269.99 for 1GHz and £299.99 for the 1.5GHz

<br /><br />Hmm -looks like the base <a href='http://www.archos.co...d=archos101g9_1' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>10.1 going for £299</a>  <img src='http://android.modac...default/sad.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' /> Doesnt seem worth it compared the 80.

Edit: Looks like they have changed it to £269 -> Thats more reasonable - though still thinking 80 is better value.

I ordered mine on Thursday from Archos.com and hope to have it delivered tomorrow or on Tuesday before I go away on a trip for work. It was £199.
