Ematic has jumped headlong into the tablet market with their eGlide Prism tablet that runs off the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, making it sound like an attractive proposition right out of the box. The thing is, even with a sleek design, will it be able to overhaul the other more established players around? Let us take a closer look at the 7” eGlide Prism to find out right after the jump.
Roy Rayn, General Manager of Ematic, says, “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.”
He is not that far off, and I find it interesting that the press release claims that the eGlide Prism’s HD video player is capable of supporting up to 2160p resolution for 3D HD videos. Now that is definitely a notch above the standard 1080p resolution even in Full HD videos, so will my eyeballs scream for joy when I check out 2160p? Other than that, this 9mm thin tablet tips the scales at a mere 0.6 pounds, featuring 8GB of internal memory and an additional 5GB of cloud storage space to augment it.
Connectivity options of the eGlide Prism include Wi-Fi and USB, while the rest of the hardware specifications comprise of a front facing camera, an integrated speaker and a microSD memory card slot. For just $157.16 at the moment (slashed from the regular $216 price point), the eGlide Prism will ship with a pair of 3D glasses to get you started right out of the box. [Press Release]
