Best Buy Joins the Tablet Business with $239-$259 Insignia Flex

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 Insignia products, Best Buy will apparently not sell its tablet to the exclusion of any others; instead, the Insignia Flex will occupy store shelves alongside the competition.
