ARCHOS 80 G9 and ARCHOS 101 G9 saddled up with 7mm thick Seagate Momentus Thin Hard drives

Remember the GoFlex Slim External Storage review which came with Momentus Thin Hard drive? Now these units are being used as Internal storage source for Archos Devices.


The performance and capacity of the Momentus Thin drive are the perfect complement for the cutting-edge speed of the ARCHOS G9 family of tablets that features the industry’s fastest dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and, on the strength of the Momentus Thin drive, gives users 250GB of capacity, eight times more than a standard 32GB tablet but at the same cost, making the ARCHOS G9 one of the tablet industry’s best cost-performance values.
ARCHOS 80 G9, the 8-inch product, and ARCHOS 101 G9, the 10-inch model, are scheduled to be available in late September. Estimated MSRPs for the ARCHOS 80 G9 and ARCHOS 101 GB tablets are $279 and $349, respectively, compared to competitive tablets starting at $499.

“Seagate continues to break new ground in the development of products and technologies that matter most to customers by delivering the Momentus® Thin drive for these powerful ARCHOS tablets,” said Rocky Pimentel, Seagate Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “The Momentus® Thin drive gives tablet buyers a compelling option, providing great storage capacity and performance that dovetail with the processing power of the new ARCHOS products for great Android and multimedia experiences.”
This is what Seagate had to say about their drives:

The Seagate Momentus Thin hard drive is ideal for tablet computers and other ultra-portables, entry-level to high-performance laptop PCs, and slim consumer electronics devices. The world’s first 2.5-inch hard drive with a 7mm profile features:
            Seagate SmartAlign™ technology to smooth the transition to 4K sectors without the need for software utilities
            320GB, 250GB and 160GB capacities
            7200RPM and 5400RPM spin speeds with 16MB of cache
            Optional: Government-grade encryption to protect computer data where it lives – on the hard drive – for powerful data security. (The Momentus Thin drive is FIPS 140-2 certified, delivering government-grade encryption, and conforms to the Trusted Computing Group Opal specification, developed to enable the ecosystem for self-encrypting drives and increase their adoption.)

Goes without saying. Way better implementation for the GoFlex Slim. Seagate is way more than one step ahead of me.
