"Kmart began selling an Android 2.1 tablet from Digital Gadgets for $180 called the Sylvania 7" Tablet. Meanwhile, NEC will soon start shipping its LifeTouch Android tablet, sales of Toshiba's Folio 100 Android tablet have been halted due to screen defects, and Lenovo is prepping a tablet for 2011, say reports.

"Joining a growing number of Android tablets available in the U.S. for under $200, the Sylvania 7" Tablet is now selling at Kmart's online store for $180. (The tablet, formally known as the Sylvania 7'' MID Tablet Wireless Mobile Internet Device, was first selling for only $150, according to a Christian Science Monitor story, but today's price is $180. The story adds that the tablet will soon be selling at Toys R Us for $140.)

"The Sylvania 7" inch is equipped with a 1GHz IMAPX200 processor, according to a web-page from Digital Gadgets, an official licensee of Sylvania-branded products. The IMAPx200 is an ARM11-based applications processor from Infotmic (further details, here) which is said to support 1080p HD video."
