This is quite the odd combination that seems to have come straight from the depths of nowhere. Augen – a company I’ve never even heard of until today – is looking to offer their Android-based tablet for K-Mart shoppers later on this week. The device – being dubbed the GenTouch78 –  has a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen, Android 2.1 (yes, this is an Android tablet with a fairly recent version of Android), an 800MHz CPU, 256MB of RAM, 2GB of internal memory, WiFi, and more.

The device will be market-enabled and will run you for about $150. If these unofficial-looking official press shots are anything to go by, then the user interface on these things have had no customization whatsoever: stock Android through and through. That may not sit well with some of you who’d like to use all of that real estate to its full advantage (there’s no customization to employ a widget and icon grid larger than 4×4).

For $150 it may not be everything you’ve always dreamt your Android tablet to be, but it’s a start. We’ll let you guys know if someone can manage to find this thing in a K-Mart store sometime this week.
