The iPod Touch probably has no problem selling units, but the lesser-known Archos 5 Internet MediaTablet Running Android isn’t a household name and – whether you like it or not – the average consumer doesn’t no squat about Android.

To be honest, the ARCHOS 5 matches up rather well and with a bigger screen and running Android, it is a formidable opponent indeed. Whether consumers will be willing to spend an extra hundy on a lesser-known brand I’m not sure, but its at least a deal worth looking at – especially for Android fans.
