Android-powered Archos 5 now shipping in the US

The Android-powered Archos 5 portable multimedia player is now being offered online through Amazon (links below). The device is equipped with a 5-inch screen that sports an 800x480 pixel resolution. Thanks to its ARM Cortex-A8 processor, the Archos 5 is capable of decoding 720p HD video smoothly and has an optional HDMI dock lets users output the video at its full resolution.

Thus far, Amazon is offering the 160GB hard drive model for $390 and the 32GB solid state drive equipped version is priced at $370. A 500GB hard drive version is priced at $500 and is so far listed as coming soon, though pre-orders are still an option. Smaller capacity flash-based versions, including an 8GB and 16GB model, are still expected to come to the North American market. [via Pocketables]
