    We have an announcement of another Android 4.0 tablet coming for the budget-friendly market. A company called Ematic just announced their new eGlide XL Pro 2, and it looks like it could be a major bargain. The tablet has some pretty decent specs, but what makes it really stand out is that it is a 10-inch tablet but has an MSRP of only $219.99! Here are the specs followed by the full press release:
    • Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich
    • 1GHz processor and a 400MHz GPU
    • 4GB of storage (expandable to 32GB via microSD)
    • 10-inch display
    • HDMI connection
    • Pre-loaded with the Ematic App Shop, a voice assistant and the Kobo eReader app (but does not have access to the Google Play Store).
    This seems pretty amazing for the money. We will do some more digging on this one in the future. "The eGlide XL Pro 2 is now available at ShopNBC.com, Walmart.com, and Amazon.com. It retails for $219.99 (prices may vary)."

    Why put these things out without access to the Google Play Store and Amazon store? What is the point of a decent tablet that has access to 6 apps?

    If someone puts CM9 on this, it's a no brainer. That being said, I still think if you can manage to nab a used Touchpad somewhere it might be a better deal.
