Little known manufacturer Augen are set to release a 7” Android tablet called the GenTouch78 via Kmart. The whole thing should cost around $150. For your money you will get a whole host of features. In truth, the only thing that is missing seems to be 3G connectivity because this puppy is alleged to offer Wi-Fi only. However, given what the rest of your money will grab you, the 3G omission could easily be overlooked. We’re expecting to see this 7” display offer a 800×480 color TFT touch panel screen. The core inner workings include a 800 Mhz CPU along…

These specifications are strong and reliable, but nothing too exciting. I hope that this is not the highest of the high-end devices…
