Could Best Buy find success in the low-priced Android tablet market? We should find out next month as their house brand Insignia is set to launch a 9.7-inch Android tablet for around $239-259. Insignia teased the product on their Facebook page last week and now Reuters reports it will hit stores on November 11th.
Details on the tablet are limited, but we know it will be called the Insignia Flex and ship with Android 4.0. The tablet features a 9.7 inch display and 1 GHz dual-core processor. Insignia also promises the device will feature a 10 hour battery life, but they fail to mention under what conditions.
We have seen cheap 10-inch tablets before, but most of them have been pure crap. It is unclear if the Insignia Flex will feature the Google Play Store, so we wouldn’t get too excited about the device until we learn that important detail.
Is anyone in the market for a low-end, almost 10-inch Android tablet?
