Kmart 7-inch Android tablet for $150

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 with 256mb of DDR2 RAM and 2GB of internal storage. You can expand up to 16GB via the SD/MMC card slot. As previously mentioned, the tablet supports Wi-Fi Connectivity along with the full web browsing capabilities that one comes to expect from Android. Furthermore, the tablet offers a host of multimedia options for audio and visual content, including JPEG, BMP, Text, PDF, E-PUB, MP3, WMA, FLAC and AAC file formats. Right now we are not clear on the size of the battery, but we’ve heard that it is a rechargeable and removable lithium battery. The $150 will also get you your very own carry case.
