Cheap Android netbook at Kmart

| Laptops News | Posted: Sep 15, 2010 7:02 pm

Years ago, most of the Kmart stores in my part of Texas went out of business and I haven't missed them until today. An interesting new netbook has turned up at Kmart from a company called Augen that is very cheap and runs the Android operating system. If you have been dying to get a netbook with Android, this may be the cheapest way to do that.
