Attention Kmart Shoppers: $150 Android Tablet Rainchecks Now Available

Paul Lilly

We're as tired talking about all these upcoming no-show tablets as you are of reading of them, but sooner or later, these early announcements will have to translate into actual shipping products, right? Well, it happened, and in most unlikeliest of places: Kmart.

Kmart's latest circular advertises the Augen 7-inch tablet on sale for just $150 through July 31, and as you might imagine, that caught a lot of interest. So much so, that Kmart is having to hand out rainchecks.

"It's taking us a bit longer to get the product in all of our stores, but if you go to your local Kmart store and pick up a raincheck for the device -- it's on sale for $149.99 right now; the regular price is $169.99 -- wi will honor the lower price when you pick it up in stores," Kmart wrote in a blog post. "The Augen tablet should be in Kmart retail locations soon.  (Of course, if you don't have the raincheck, you can still pick it up at the regular price, which we still think is a bargain!)."

The 7-inch Gentouch78 tablet sports a touch panel LCD screen with an 800x480 resolution, 800MHz processor, 2GB of internal memory and 256MB of RAM, SD card slot with support for up to 16GB, and Wi-Fi, all wrapped into Android's 2.1 platform. It will also have access to the Android Market App Store.

It doesn't appear as though the Gentouch78 comes with any USB ports or webcams, but hey, neither does the iPad, and that costs several hundred more.
