Augen GENTOUCH 7-inch Android Tablet will sell for $149 at Kmart

The name Augen doesn’t ring any bells, although it does sound like something a player would scream out loud in a Street Fighter II match. The company is based in Hollywood, Florida, and has products ranging from eReaders, Netbooks, to Internet Tablet PC’s. Their latest incarnations that peaked my interest are the 7-inch Android tablet “GENTOUCH”, and 7-inch e-Reader “TheBook”.

HTC-EVO-GB-700

Sprint’s first WiMax/4G phone is official, and it’s everything your dream smartphone could be. The HTC Evo 4G is a combination of HTC’s Touch HD2 hardware, and a bit of Sense UI Android goodness of the HTC Legend, pushing 720p HDMI output and ultimately becoming the future of portable multimedia entertainment.

The Evo will be exclusive to Sprint, with blazing fast downloads over their 4G network, it will also work on their existing 3G network, but 4G is really where its at (10 times faster than 3G). Running Android 2.1, with a beautiful 4.3-inch TFT LCD screen at 480×800 resolution, we would expect this powerful machine to support DiVX, but no official word on that just yet.
