Ematic eGlide Prism tablet does the Android dance
When it comes to the world of tablets, there is none out there which is as popular as the Apple iPad. It has sold millions and millions of devices ever since it was released to the masses, and not only that, it has also been so carefully marketed so much so that a line will form for a new iPad at Apple Stores around the world a few days before the new model is actually released, now how about that? In addition, we have also heard some random bits of news about a teenager in China who actually sold one of his kidneys to raise money to purchase an iPad 2, which is rather sad when you think about it.
Well, other manufacturers have failed to come close to what Apple has done with the iPad in terms of sales figures as well as popularity, not to mention ease of use, although I must say that Samsung has bridged the gap quite a bit with their Galaxy Tab range over the past couple of years. It is basically iOS vs Android on the tablet front, until Microsoft does something about their Windows 8, of course, and the latest Android-powered tablet to be introduced would be the Ematic eGlide Prism.
According to Roy Rayn, General Manager of Ematic, “The eGlide Prism is packed with the latest technology designed for an improved user experience. It’s also slim in size which makes it the perfect tablet for people who are always on the move.”
The eGlide Prism will be powered by the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, where it will deliver improved multi-tasking capability, faster web browsing and a refined interface. The eGlide Prism itself has been optimized for rich media entertainment, never mind that the 7″ touchscreen display might seem a wee bit too small to many of us. There is also an integrated 3-axis gyroscope that will work in tandem with an accelerometer, allowing the eGlide Prism to experience advanced motion sensing such as user acceleration, and full 3D altitude and rotation.
It will also be able to support 2160p 3D HD videos, and each $216 purchase will come with Wi-Fi connectivity, 8GB of internal flash memory, 5GB of cloud storage, a microSD memory card slot, a front facing camera, and an integrated speaker. Accessories include a pair of 3D glasses, a protective sleeve, earphones, wall charger, and a USB cable.
