Guesses seem to be all on this device running Android, but no confirmation yet. It comes with its own docking station as well.

Archos launch 5 Android Internet Tablet: hands-on video & gallery

It's not all phones running Android; yesterday Archos announced their much-anticipated Android-based PMP, the touchscreen Archos 5 Internet Tablet.  Packing a 4.8-inch resistive touchscreen, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth and a choice of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of flash storage or 160GB or 500GB of hard-drive based storage, the Archos 5 has a custom UI designed by the company to sit on top of Android. Both local and streaming network content is supported, and the Archos 5 also has the usual Android web browser for internet access.  Since the PMP lacks integrated 3G, Archos have made it straightforward to tether your cellphone via Bluetooth when there's no WiFi around; you can also use the Bluetooth to hook up a keyboard and mouse, while Archos also offer HDMI docks that will output 720p HD video (and browsing at 1,280 x 720 resolution) on your TV. An optional DVR Dock allows you to record TV or other video directly onto the Archos 5; pricing for the PMP itself ranges from $250 to $440.  For hands-on first-impressions of the Archos 5 Android Internet Tablet check out our SlashGear post.

FCC outs Android-powered Archos tablet

You have to love those hacks over at the FCC. They seem to be incapable of not leaking a product ahead of its official announcement as they are testing it for compliance with all the wireless regulations in America. The FCC has become a constant source of information on new products. The latest outing by the FCC is Archos' Android media tablets. The things sure look sexy in the FCC tests. The two Archos tablets are the A5S and the A5H. The A5S is reportedly the version in the picture above.
