Best Buy tablet

Best Buy may be making its own Android tablet soon. Robert Stephens, CTO of the giant retailer, tweeted an image of a tablet on Friday that sported Best Buy's 'Rocketfish' branding. 

Next, Ben Hedrington, a web strategist for the company, tweeted his own "hidden" message: 

"Hint looking for a little green robot on that Best Buy tablet screen..."

Now if that doesn't give away the operating system of the tablet, I'm not sure what will. Best Buy is set to launch Best Buy Connect, a 4G data service soon, so a tablet should not be too surprising. 

Great to hear more news about Android tablets and you know one from Best Buy is going to receive a huge marketing push. Hopefully it won't prevent them from selling other tablets, like the rumored Samsung and Motorola devices. [Androinica via CrunchGear]

Best Buy tablet in the works?


I really hope this is good. Best Buy does some decent stuff with their Rocketfish brand so this could be pretty nice.

P.S. The CTO's name is Robert Stephens.

does anyone really care who the best buy cto is?

You could've called him Rupert Anderson and I wouldn't have cared either way.

FIRST!!! i've always wanted to say that....

seriously though. If you can get this sans data plan, it will be a thing of beauty

Wow, that's about as well hidden as my nephew when he wants to play hide and seek, and says, "I'M NOT HIDING BEHIND THE COUCH!!"

You can keep it, My GF had a RocketFish HDD enclosure Cost 60 bucks, and was shorting out. Walked into Fry's picked up USB/eSATA case for 25 dollars from Thermaltake.

I do not trust their quality control.

I love peoples attitudes to store brands... If the first product they buy from it is a dud, they all are.

I have a Bluetooth mouse and combo set, 5 or so HDMI cables, an optical cable, a micro Bluetooth adapter, a headset or 2, a few chargers, a mouse pad, and have bought many HDD enclosures for family from Rocketfish. They're one of the best store brands I've ever seen and their quality control is fantastic from what I've seen.

I've never been happier to be a best buy employee. I'll try to hook up Android Central with as much inside info as possible on this.
