    Best Buy doesn't make anything and neither does their brand, Insignia. Other companies take their products from last year and rebrand them with the Insignia logo for Best Buy to sell. I wonder who actually makes this tablet?

    it's called an ODM

    google define: ODM

    ODM
    Original device manufacturer is a company that produces hardware which other companies sell under their own brands.

    whatever works I guess.
