 No, Android is not yet available in a ROM format.Currently Android is installed by using a clean SD Card, and booted from there.It is booted by running a special application called 'Haret.exe' residing on your SD Card which will terminate the Windows kernel and boot into Linux/Android.

It can't easily be run from ROM because :
a) it's too experimental to risk putting in ROM and then killing a device 
b) WinMo does some hardware initialization that isn't documented, but is needed before Android can run.
