Topic: Did Best Buy Carry A Competitor To the Insignia InfoCast 8?

As posted above, I am just wondering if there ever was a competitor to the Best Buy Insignia InfoCast 8 that was sold by Best Buy? My memory is a little sketchy on this, but I seem to recall seeing the  Insignia InfoCast 8 on display and then in the same general area there was a competing device. Maybe it was made by a computer company like Hewlett Packard or Toshiba. How did those devices compare to the Insignia InfoCast 8?

Not sure about that. I don't think they sold the Chumby 8 because the Info was their product. That was the only product at time that compared to Info 8. I could be wrong.

Did find they used to sell
Insignia™ - 8" Flex Tablet - Intel Atom - 16GB - Black
Model:NS-15MS08 SKU:9347013
It looked a little like the chumby8.

I did a bit more research and I think the ones I were thinking of were:

HP DreamScreen 100/130, and

Toshiba DMF82XKU/DMF102XKU

I don't think they were as feature rich as the Chumby, however.
