Best Buy (BBY) is preparing to go head-to-head with the iPad and every single Android tablet on the market. The electronics retail store casually posted an image of its upcoming Insignia Flex Tablet on its Facebook (FB) page revealing that the slate will come with a 9.7-inch display, a dual-core 1GHz processor, 10 hours of battery life and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The page didn’t reveal any information regarding storage capacity, nor did it reveal pricing, but it’s likely the slate will be very affordable given the fact that it is being sold under the company’s Insignia label. Best Buy’s Insignia brand has traditionally offered competitive HDTVs and other home electronics at discounted prices compared to big brand names. Best Buy’s Facebook page also teased that the Insignia Flex Tablet will arrive at brick and mortar stores “one month from [Thursday],” which would be November 11th.
