    I just got an email from Amazon advertising the Archos 7 with Android. It specifically stated in the description that apps are available from the anroid market.

    It is priced at $199 8gb 7hr battery

    Archos's web site says the 7 is linux, not android. Anyone have more info?

    They did a crappy job naming this device. There are two different devices, Archos 7 Internet Tablet and Archos 7 Home Tablet. The Home Tablet is what you are looking for that is selling for $200 and running Android.

    I am curious to see if my pre-order is going to ship or not. The Home 7 is already out of stock on the Amazon site (the status went directly from pre-order to out of stock in fact).

    I wonder how many units they got in and if all pre-orders will be fulfilled...

    Android is linux based. That's most likely what they meant.

    Check your order status, it should still give an estimated ship date of 5/21. They are only filling preorders until the end of the month, then they will open up ordering again.

    I doubt it. There have been countless third party previews of the system where the author mixes the two systems into one (ie saying that it is available in a 320gb model). Their Archos 7 Internet Tablet is a custom Linux based OS that has no Android on it.
