Kmart and Android are names you probably never though would be uttered in the same breath, but in their weekly circular the discount retailer has a 7-inch tablet, running Android 2.1 on sale for $149.99. Before you say "meh" and click away, this one has a bit better specs than what we've seen for ultra-cheap Android tablets so far:
- 800x480 TFT display
- 800 Mhz CPU
- 256 MB RAM
- 2 GB internal memory
- On board WiFi, and a SD/MMC card slot
The weekly Kmart ad shows the tablet on sale through July 31. I've been on the phone with every Kmart in a 200 mile radius, and it seems none has received any stock as of yet, but several stores claim they should have them on the shelves by Thursday July 29. With a little bit of hacking, and a little bit of Froyo, this might be the first Android tablet worth buying. If we can get our hands on one we'll be sure to let you know.
