    Best Buy officially announced their plan to launch their own Android tablet November 11th, hoping to compete for the attention of Holiday shoppers amongst the gamut of options available.

    • 9.7-inch display
    • Dual-core 1GHz processor
    • 10 hours of battery life
    • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
    We will keep you informed when more info is shared.

    Last year's specs and no discernible services make this a transparent and somewhat weak marketing ploy that will simply be in the background during your shopping.

    Do yourselves and your loved ones a favor this season: Go for brands you know so you at least have a chance of some real support down the road.

    Fairly standard operating procedures for Insignia anything. Cheap is the key.

    Not enough info to really comment, should be jelly bean though, there may be an upgrade available who knows. Right now to early to speculate on what it will or will not have.

    hmmm, cut rate brand sold by Best Buy.

    I don't think I need much more information than that.
    Its name is flex, that doesn't imply what it does, and certainly not at THAT price point.

    Don't get your hopes up, and by all means steer clear of wishful thinking! LOL
