Ok, so maybe not an iPad killer.
But I have to admit that this type of tablet is going to certain cut into the iPad market share!
K-Mart just released a $149, 7″ Android powered tablet called the Augen GenTouch 78
What do you get for the $149 ($149.99 to be exact):
The Augen GenTouch 78 7″ tablet is now available for $149.99 with the following features:
- 800×480 color TFT touch panel screen
- CPU: 800 Mhz
- RAM: DDR2 256mb
- Internal Memory: 2GB
- OS: Android 2.1
- Expansion Slots: SD/MMC card slot up to 16GB
- Wi-Fi Connectivity with full web browsing capability
- Supports Ebook Formats: Text, PDF, E-PUB, HTML
- Supports Media Formats: MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC
- Picture Viewer in JPEG, BMP
- Video Player
- Rechargeable Lithium Battery
- Leather carrying case, USB cable, and AC adapter included
That’s right, you’ll get a free leather carrying case for your tablet as well. All for the price of $149.99.
And I suppose you could also pick up a 3G data package from Verizon as well for another $30 a month.
All in all, the Augen Android tablet at K-Mart is something that will certain fly off the shelves.
You can save about $350 by buying the Augen from K-Mart instead of the iPad.
That’s a 350 reasons that a lot people might like!
