Cheap Windows tablet by Ematic spotted at the FCC
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.
