Everyone thinks of Google's Android as an operating system for phones, but how does it work on a device that isn't a phone? The Archos 5 Internet Tablet is an entertainment and media-playing device (think iPod Touch instead of iPhone) that uses Android as its base operating system. The Archos 5 Internet Tablet (despite the name) has no 3G Internet connection, instead relying on Wi-Fi hotspots to get on the Internet. The well-built device provides quality HD video, a good MP3-playing experience, games and, of course, Internet browsing.
