Best Buy Insignia Flex tabletBest Buy’s in-house branded tablet, the Insignia Flex, will feature a dual-core 1GHz processor, 9.7 inch screen, and 10 hour battery life, putting it in direct competition with Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD and Google’s Nexus 7. But where Amazon and Google’s tablets will be priced at $199, rumors are that the Insignia Flex will run $239-$259. Another vendor shooting itself in the foot – this is priced too high to be successful. Getting tablet hardware to a $200 price point is an almost impossible feat for most brands but thank heaven for the price war that is benefitting consumers thus far.

The Insignia Flex will run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and is expected to be released November 11, 2012.
