Ematic intros the eGlide Pro X tablet
Reportedly, the California-headquartered personal electronics company Ematic has officially unveiled its latest tablet, called eGlide Pro X. According to the manufacturer, the device is priced at $219.99 and will “soon” start shipping.
Roy Rayn, President of Ematic was quoted as saying: “We listened to Ematic consumers’ needs and we’re excited to build on the explosive success from our previously released Android 4.0 tablets,” … “This tablet was created to meet the demands of consumers requesting diverse personal and professional elements in one touch screen device.”
While the above mentioned price-tag is fairly impressive for a 9.7-inch (4:3 aspect ratio) slate PC, J&R (where the eGlide Pro X is currently up for pre-order) claims the capacitive touchscreen display has a native resolution of 840-by-480 pixels, which is low for a tablet this size.
Underneath the hood, this portable device packs an ARM Cortex-A9 central processing unit with one physical core operating at a frequency of 1.2GHz. Furthermore, users will be provided with a 400 MHz GPU for accelerating 3D graphics, 1GB of internal RAM, 5GB cloud storage and 8GB built-in storage (expandable by up to additional 32GB via the integrated microSD card slot).
Ematic’s eGlide Pro X presumably comes outfitted with Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n adapter, microHDMI output, one microUSB port and dual cameras. Other features include an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, a three-axis gyroscope and a pre-installed Kobo Reader for “for access to millions of books”.
