Having trouble choosing a table but both of the above look like pretty good spec for the price, which would you choose? Which is the better deal?

I bought my wife the 70b e reader and myself the 80G9.....NO contest,the 80G9 is far better as an all round tablet.
1 it's far faster
2 the 70b is resistive screen whereas the 80G9 is capacitive
3 Games like Angry Birds is jerky on the 70b but smooth on the 80G9

I could go on but at the end of the day it's down to what you really need it for and if you can stretch the budget.
I'm waiting for a really good deal on an 80G9 or even a 101G9(for me and she can have my 80)

hope this helps.

I think TS is speaking about the 70b Internet Tablet.

hello joey,

disclaimer: i have both Archos G8 70 (froyo) and Archos G9 80.

I was a bit disappointed with the bulkiness and large bezel of the G9 80. The slightly larger screen is nice, but it feels - and is - much heavier than the 70.

I love the size of the 70. It's very portable and fits nicely in my jacket pocket!

I'd definitely go for the 70b if I were shopping now. And the price is fine too - about 220 euros in my local shop and in amazon.co.uk.

The only -small- drawback I can see in the 70b is reading full-page PDFs without scrolling, in portrait. Similarly apps such as Engadget distro might have a bit small text. The screen is just a tad small for this. However you can read PDFs fine zommed in, in landscape mode. And kindle flows the text nicely, no problem there.

However, in everything else, including games, the 70 is fine.

The interesting thing is how in the G9 forums everyone is complaining about flash video freezing and crashing yet nothing about that in this forum so far. If this holds that would make the 70b better than the G9s so far.
