Gadget site Best Buy posted on their website specs of a previously undisclosed Android unit that they have been giving “sneak-peeks” about.
This was the Insignia Flex, an Android-operated tablet measuring 9.7 inches. There was no price stated in the product unveiling, but a source claims that it would range from $239 to $259.
Many other features of the tablet are yet to be revealed. In a statement released by Insignia through its official Facebook page, the tablet would be having a 9.7 inch display, 1 GHz, dual-core processor, and a battery capacity of 10 hours.
The picture tweeted by Insignia after the announcement also shows that the unit has a microSD port. The source also claims that the new tablet would be having a built-in camera and would be weighing 0.6577 kilograms.
The new tablet would be on sale solely through Best Buy starting on the 11th of November. The suggested price range would make it more costly than the highly preferred Kindle Fire HD and Google Nexus 7, both having on sale at $199.
Although cheaper than other Android-running tablets and the popular iPad, and with similar screen dimensions with other tablets, including the Galaxy Tab 2, the Insignia Flex is definitely into some tight competition in the tablet world.
Insignia is an in-house brand of gadget site Best Buy, and is the company’s means to supply relatively affordable electronics to those who are not inclined to costly gadgets from popular brands.
This could have a negative impact in terms of company profit, with buyers willing to pay more for a tablet from more popular brands. The features, however, and the modest price still makes the Insignia Flex a good tablet for consumers on a budget.
