Bargain hunters, Best Buy has a deal for you. As expected, the popular big box retailer launched an affordable Android tablet under its own Insignia brand. The Insignia Flex, as the device is called, is listed for $250 on Best Buy's web page and qualifies for free shipping.
As far as specs go, don't expect to have your socks knocked off by the Insignia Flex. It comes with a 9.7-inch LCD screen with 1024 by 768 pixels of resolution. With an aspect ratio of 4:3, this display is clearly not the most suitable for watching movies, but surfing the web should feel quite comfortable on it. The processor inside it is a dual-core TI OMAP 4428 running at 1.0GHz, paired with 1GB of RAM. There is a 2-megapixel front-facing camera present, and the 8GB of storage that come on-board can be expanded with the use of a microSD card. Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth connectivity come standard. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is what comes loaded on the Insignia Flex.
So overall, perhaps the Insignia Flex isn't too bad of an offering, but it surely isn't the best one either in this price category. Still, keep an eye out for this one if you're looking for a reasonably priced Android 10-incher.
The Insignia Flex is available at Best Buy for $250
