Does Best Buy belong in the tablet business?

From RetailWire, where the discussion centers around private-brand tablets (like Dynex or Insignia) at Best Buy. I think there’s a place for this kind of merchandising, even in the increasingly crowded marketplace for tablets:

To some degree, tablets are displacing not only desktops and laptops but also TV’s. It’s not news that consumers watch movies on tablets, but consumption of TV series and other cable content is growing rapidly. So Best Buy needs to get into the game, just as they carry a credible assortment of private-brand TV’s under the Dynex and Insignia labels. I agree with the assessment that $199 (not $250) is the magic price point — otherwise, why not buy a Kindle Fire or other branded tablet?
