There's another tablet computer on the loose, and this time it's a 7-inch Android-based slate from Augen with a nice looking price tag at Kmart.

Also referred to as the Gentouch78, the tablet runs on Android 2.1 out of the box. The processor is unnamed, but it runs at 800Mhz. The specs are on the budget side of the spectrum, such as the 800x400 resolution TFT touchscreen, 2GB of storage space and 256MB of memory.

But there is a SD/MMC expansion slot that allows up to 16GB of more space, built-in Wi-Fi, an included leather carrying case, and users can watch 720p HD videos. Unfortunately, battery life remains a mystery.

Best of all, this gadget only costs $150 over at Kmart's online store.
