The Archos 5 Android Internet Tablet started shipping earlier this month. Back then only the 160GB and the 32GB Archos 5 Android players were available. Now the top of the line 500GB Archos 5 Android ships as well for $499.99 from Amazon.com.

Over the last days Archos 5 Android users reported issues with their device and Amazon actually stopped offering the 160GB model due to customer reports.
On October 12th Archos issued a new firmware 1.1.01 that offers new features and improvements. The changelog does not mention any fixes for freezes.
Chabrax over at Archosfans got some more details from Archos and dissects the reported issues.

Android is in general still something that is more ideal for early adopters. Things will improve fast and the Archos 5 will also get Android release 1.6 Donut by the end of the year. 2010 will be the year Android matures as the install base will be pretty wide.
