It seems like every company is producing tablets these days, and Best Buy is taking the plunge as well with the 9.7-inch Insignia Flex. Announced on Friday via Facebook, the Flex is coming to Best Buy stores on November 11th. Only a few specs were listed on the Facebook announcement, including that the Flex will have a dual-core 1GHz processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and 10 hours of battery life. According to a Reuters source, it will also have a front-facing camera and will weigh in at 1.45 pounds. The source also has the price tag: between $239-$259. As it has done before with its other...

Sure, you can spend several grand on a swank home theater setup that kicks out enough volume and bass to knock the dishes out of your neighbor's kitchen cabinet, but hey, times are tough and disposable income isn't as disposable as it once was. So for most of us, we're simply looking for a modest speaker set that (A) won't break the bank, and (B) doesn't suck. Hoping to meet both of those goals, Best Buy today announced the new Insignia 5.1 Home Theater System with Audyssey audio technology. Best Buy is the only place you can snag the speaker set, which the electronics chain promises will be "reasonably... Read more...
It's still too early to tell whether these types of information displays are going to be a hit in the mainstream, but with Sony entering with the Dash, there's at least a slight chance. Chumby Industries has been creating these types of displays, which are basically a digital photo frame but with web connectivity and access to a number of widgets. These displays are used to easily check the weather, check e-mail and browser photos, video and music. Insignia, which is Best Buy's brand of consumer electronics, has just introduced another option in this growing product segment: the 8" Infocast Internet... Read more...
This is easily one of the most interesting partnerships that we have seen this year in the consumer electronics world, and it's one that most general consumers will overlook. Insignia is the "house brand" at Best Buy, a label of electronics that are generally priced below that of Sony, Sharp, LG, etc. Over the years Insignia has expanded to cover televisions, portable media players, memory accessories, and lots more, but it has remained a brand that hardly anyone took seriously. But now, the most recognized name in the DVR industry is partnering with Insignia, and not only in branding, but in an... Read more...
Oh, wow. What in the world is this? Insignia's Little Buddy Child Tracker, which absolutely has the worst product name we've ever seen, it a GPS tracker that's designed specifically to track kids and help parents keep their worrying in check. Of course, there are plenty of benefits to having this, but it's the approach here that bothers us. Marketed under Best Buy's in-house label, the tiny GPS-enabled stick has an integrated battery in it and continually tracks location as it moves. The idea here is for parents to shove this into backpacks, notebooks or lunch containers in order to keep tabs on... Read more...
It may not be the first portable HD Radio player announced (that honor would arguably go to Microsoft's not-yet-available Zune HD), but it certainly is the first portable HD Radio player that you can purchase. Starting today, gym rats and portable music lovers alike can finally get their taste of HD Radio on the go with the Insignia NS-HD01. On sale exclusively at Best Buy, the "first ever portable HD Radio" gives users the ability to hear crystal clear, supercharged FM radio for free, and there's even a full-color LCD to help them navigate the menus and channels. As expected, there's a built-in,... Read more...
