  1. A picture recently shared by Best Buy's chief technology officer and Geek Squad founder, Robert Stephens, suggests the company is working on a tablet to sell under its Rocketfish brand. Not much is known about the device yet other than the fact that it bears a striking resemblance to the HP Slate and it is expected to run Google's Android platform.

    Rebranded electronics with a Best Buy logo on it?? No thanks. The only items I'll buy from Best Buy are things they can't mess with like prepackaged music CD's, movie CD/Blu-ray's, cables, etc.

    I had just received my Chinese knock-off unknown name brand, with no logo or info except for the box that read, iRobot on it. The unit had 3G, Vibration for Video, Music, Games for in the car usage, Ethernet connection, WiFi 802.11(b,g,n) But it only had Android OS 1.6 with a build that was tweaked v1.7.4. Here's my full hands-on review of this produce compared to AuGen Gentouch 78 sold at Kmart for $149 on sale to $169 not on sale. Video Review on Youtube use this title to search it out:
