Best Buy announced recently on its Facebook page, that it’s releasing a new Insignia Flex Android tablet. The device’s specifications are rather modest, but the design is interesting. This may look like a budget tablet, but we have no details on the price just yet.

Best Buy has been teasing a mystery product for the past weeks, so this might be it. Flex Tablet runs Android 4.0 ICS and packs a 1 GHz dual core processor, a 9.7 inch display and a battery that offers 10 hours of functioning time. The Twitter and Facebook product announcements say that this slate will hit the shelves a “month from today”, so around November 11th or so. Speculations also say that the price will be somewhere between $150 and $250.

We have no specs for this model, aside from what we see pictured: stuff like a microSD port, a headphone port and integrated microphone. I wonder who’s the maker behind this product, especially since Insignia is a brand that usually does audio, TV, video and car accessories. Usually cheap tablets come from Asia, but this one appeared in USA. Will you buy it?

    This is an expensive undertaking and I had thought Best Buy was infinancial trouble. I guess with all the store closings and laying off employees Best Buy can now afford this.
