Correction: G-sensor is a present feature in the A5IT
openAOS (Open Source Android Operating Systems) is working on a port of Android 2.2 onto the Archos 5 Internet Tablet, which has the TI3440. Texas Instruments has a good platform for opensource firmware development. A public alpha release will be available soon.
openAOS is stating that they are still months away from a stable release. The hardware specifications make this device Android 2.2 and Adobe Flash capable.
This can be had for as low as $190 (JR.com sale). While it does run an older version of Android, the specifications, pricing and availability make it one of the most viable Android tablets on the market today at 5".
Check out this alpha build, shown with wifi and OpenGL acceleration working:
