"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."
