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.

If this tablet had access to the Play Store and other proprietary apps, I'd be a better choice than the Nexus 7. No Google Apps = no full Android experience, which is as bad as the non-expandable storage on the Nexus 7.
mystery specs mentioning clock speeds but not soc? sent to die.
exactly... clock speed means nothing out of the context of which SoC...
I realize that they're trying to monetize on their own app store, but if it doesn't have access to the play store, that's a deal breaker for me.
4:3, no thanks
eGlide Pro sounds like a personal lubricant.
They probably should include a tube of lube with the tablet...
Tablets like this are given as gifts by people who have no idea the normal Android Market is not on here. They should be shunned. Although, I am not sure why people are jumping to the conclusion that the Play Store cannot be loaded onto this. Was that mentioned somewhere? I see it talks about their market but maybe it is just an additional market like the HTC Hub or Amazon App store?
cheap android tabs, almost never get official Google certification...meaning no Play Store out of the box. If this little guy had Google Certification, they would be touting it all over the place. Your right, they'll have to hack this and get gapps working on it, which takes some time.. Another android tab for they haystack.. this one isn't that much different than the Le Pan here http://www.amazon.com/Le-Pan-II-9-7-Inch-Tablet/dp/B0067XX3AI/ref=sr_1_1... except it has Google Cert, but no ICS! Haha..you can see why Google wants to take the reigns on the tab market..
My only question.. why is the screen not centered?? Either a terrible photoshop job.. or terrible product design.
Off-center screen is less likely to get sued by Apple. How does it matter anyway?
