After much teasing and speculation on social media about an exciting new product launch Minneapolis based electronics retailer Best Buy announced the upcoming launch of a Insignia Private Brand tablet on its Facebook page. The Insignia Flex Tablet will retail for between $239 and $259 when it goes on sale November 11.
