Apple has the iPad, Amazon has the Kindle Fire HD and Barnes & Noble has the Nook HD+. Clearly feeling left out, Best Buy is going to enter the tablet fray with its own device, the Insignia Flex. According to Reuters, the tablet will sell for between $239 and $259. Best Buy released the specs on the Insignia Facebook page last week and the specs are as follows: 9.7-inch screen, Dual-core 1GHz processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 10-hour battery life. Best Buy didn’t offer any details about the screen type, onboard storage or connectivity, but given the low price point, we’re not expecting it to compete against the higher-tier 10-inch tablets.
