Ematic have today announced their latest budget tablet, the eGlide Pro X. Running Android 4.0, the 4:3 9.7 inch tablet is retailing for a remarkably low price of only $219.99.
With the budget tablet market geared up for what Google has to offer this week the eGlide Pro X could well be a contender as its specs are not to be sniffed at.
Packing a 1.2GHz processor, 400MHz GPU and 1GB RAM, Ice Cream Sandwich should flow nicely on the new tablet.
Combined with 8GB of internal storage, 5GB of available cloud storage and MicroSD support up to 32GB of storage the eGlide Pro X sounds pretty interesting.
