The Archos 5 has never been the most popular Android tablet - it has its plusses and minuses, but the 500GB version at almost half off that popped up on Amazon today may make you forgive and forget some of its flaws. Considering that with the Market hack, Archos 5 gets full access to the Android Market, this little device could end up being the largest portable media hub you can get for the price.

      There is an effort to bring Froyo to this tablet, though it's still in alpha phase - http://www.openaos.org/

      But yeah, this is gen7 - gen8 is the one getting Froyo action (2 days ago) from Archos nowadays. Maybe someday they will update officially too.
