According to reports by users at XDA, the capacitive touchscreen is 1+1 touch. While it works for pinch to zoom actions, it is not a true multitouch device. This rules it out from being a true next-generation Android device. Other Tegra 2 devices released on the market that have true multitouch are typically 10", such as the Viewsonic G-Tab.
Other useful interesting bits includes the device being reported as a 'Compal NAZ10' with 375MB of actual application memory available.
For those who are looking for a last-minute Christmas gift, the Nook Color might be the better looking device for the tech savvy. But right now, the $299 price tag on the A7 is still tough to beat, especially compared to the Archos 70, which is certainly a lesser device in terms of raw hardware capability. Tack on the fact that the A7 is available now and shipping everywhere in the US (Canada as well, through Tigerdirect).
