Best Buy to sell Flex tablet for about $250 Last week, Best Buy announced their first tablet, the Insignia Flex.
The company did not reveal all too much about the tablet, except to say it would have a 9.7-inch screen, a 1GHz dual-core processor and battery life of 10 hours. Insignia is Best Buy's in-house branding.

Additionally, the company noted the device will initially run on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, with an update to 4.1 Jelly Bean possible in the future. The tablet has a mic, headphone port and microSD slot, but other ports are unknown.

The device will ship in the second week of November but there was no word on price. This week, however, we have a better idea of the pricing, thanks to Reuters.

"$239 to $259" will be the price, says the report, likely implying a price tag of $249.99 when the price is officially unveiled.

For a 9.7-inch tablet, the price undercuts anything out there and the price matches the upcoming 32GB 7-inch Nexus 7.
