Best Buy is the only official non-Apple retailer that sells all versions of the iPad, but that's not stopping the leader in brick & mortar electronics from trying to get a more direct cash-in on the tablet craze.
Robert Stevens, chief technology officer of Best Buy, has posted a few photos on his Twitter account of what a Best Buy-branded tablet would look like. These mock-ups don't have any guts inside them, but Stevens said there is definitely work being done to bring the idea to a reality.

Best Buy sells TVs, DVD players, and other mass consumer electronic devices under various brands like Insignia and Dynex. These devices are generally much cheaper than the other big-name brands but they are usually of considerably lower quality.

Not much is known about what a Best Buy tablet would do - how much processing power it would have, what operating system it would use, or how it would market itself as a more desirable product than the iPad.

My guess is it would likely be a much cheaper alternative, something in the range of $200.
