Kmart touts $150 Android tablet

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.

Smaller consumer electronics firms like Hollywood, Florida-based Augen, are clearly hoping to gain some momentum before heavy-hitters like Acer, Lenovo, Sharp, Toshiba, Samsung, and others enter the market in the fall. Motorola may well join them with an Android tablet.
