"Kmart has begun touting a seven-inch "Gentouch78" Android 2.1
tablet for $150, as well as a Linux-based seven-inch color e-reader
called "TheBook eReader," both from Augen. Meanwhile, TheStreet
quotes analyst Ashok Kumar as saying Motorola will release a
10-inch tablet this November running Android 3.0.
"Augen's Gentouch78 may not be able to compete on price with
India's upcoming $35 tablet, but it's about as low as it goes so
far in the fledgling Android tablet market.
"Yes, the Android tablets are finally arriving, with new models
set to go on sale in the coming weeks, including the e-reader
focused, $200 Cruz Reader from Velocity Micro. Meanwhile, a version
of the seven-inch, Android-ready Eken M001 was seen selling in
China in April for as little as $143."
