Despite the budget pricing, most Ematic tablets offer these features:
- A Web cam
- Kobo book application for eReading
- A powerful processor to enhance gaming
- HD video player
- A camera
- Built-in voice recorder
- A personal assistant
- A music player
An Ematic App Shop comes loaded on the devices, and although the tablets don't come with the Google Android Marketplace or game store, user shortcuts for downloading the apps are posted on forums online. Some report difficulty in getting the Google features to work while others have no problem.
A USB cable, wall charger and a card for free music download come with a tablet purchase, and the eGlide Prism model even comes with a pair of 3-D glasses for movie viewing. Accessory kits and stands and protective colored sleeves also are available.
If you're in the market for an Android tablet with speed, storage and a low price point, you might want to kick the tires a bit and add Ematic to your list of test drives.
