This 7-inch slate has a Bay Trail-T processor, IPS display, 1 GB of memory, 16 GB of internal storage and microSD support.

Ematic is not a new name when it comes to cheap Android tablets, but they do not sell any Windows tablet yet. Apparently that is about to change soon as the 7-inch Ematic EWT716 has been spotted at the FCC earlier this week. This is a cheap Windows 8.1 tablet powered by an Intel Atom SoC from the Bay Trail-T family.

Ematic EWT716 has, according to the user manual, the following specs and features:

  • Processor: 1.3 GHz Intel Atom, quad-core (model not specified)
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 32 GB
  • Display: 7-inch IPS touchscreen with 1,024X600 pixels
  • Cameras: front and back, no other details available
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, micro USB
  • Operating system: Windows 8.1
  • Battery: 2800 mAh

Toshiba and HP have similar models on the market already with prices around the $100 USD mark, so the Ematic EWT716 will probably sell for about the same amount. Unfortunately nothing is official yet, but we will get back to Ematic's first Windows-loaded slate as soon as they confirm it.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
