Augen 7 inch Android tablet

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.  [Augen US via Engadget and Kmart] Thanks Charles!
