    Just a few days ago we shared the official announcement that Best Buy would be launching their own 9.7-inch Android tablet called the Insignia Flex. Today we have a rumor regarding the pricing and availability of the device. According to the intel, the Insignia Flex will hit Best Buy store shelves on November 11th and cost somewhere between $239-$259. The source of this info is a report from Reuters, which typically has a good track record for reliability. Here's a quote with some more info,

    If accurate, this price could be fairly competitive. Could Best Buy's tablet create any ripples any the Android market?

    Since it's a 9.7" IPS display, it comes to mind this could be a re-badged Le Pan or Matsunichi tablet.

    LP just launched their lower costed Le Pan S, and it's priced at $229 at welmart.com. Even colours like pink and purple, for those that enjoy them. White and plain black for more conservative tastes.

    Seens this in another site, and immediately thought it could be a Le Pan. They do sell their tablets at BB as well.

    Other than that, the price is not attractive enough to buy a no-name, who's going to support this, device. Le Pan itself is pretty slow at delivering promised updates and upgrades.
