If you are in the market for a cheap tablet, then you may want to take a trip to WalMart. They have a new Android tablet there called the Ematic eGlide 4 and it is selling at a very affordable $79.99. It's specs will definitely not "wow" you, but they are decent for just $80 bones, especially that it comes with Ice Cream Sandwich. Here's a breakdown,
  • 7-inch touchscreen
  • 1 GHz single-core processor
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 4GB of internal storage
  • 5GB of cloud storage
  • A microSD card slot
  • Office suite software
  • Mini HDMI Output
  • Wi-Fi
  • Android 4.0/ICS
What do you think? Could this be a good traveling or kid's tablet?

Capacitive or resistive touch screen?
 
If only it had a front facing camera. My 7 year old is in the market for a tablet and he wants one he can use to video skype with me when I am away.
 
I can't imagine this being all that great, but I guess you get what you pay for.
 
That's Nice! Great price! "Perfect Tab for the kids" and travel like you said! Bought the boy a Kindle Fire for Xmas, and after a month, the newness wears off and I'm pretty much the only one who uses it now! lol . I want the new Nexus 7, but then I'll have a kindle sitting in a desk drawer!

You should definitely get a nexus 7. I sure love mine. I sold my old nook color to make up for some of the cost of the nexus 7. You should think about doing the same if your kindle is just going to be sitting in a droor :biggrin:
 
Lol ...problem with that is its "his"! God forbid if I would try and take it back from him :) even if he don't use it, :p
You know its all about the XBOX!!!

I love the size of it. 10" is a little awkward to me. The nexus will receive updates faster than any other android device currently out which is definitely a plus. While I'm aware that the Xoom has a solid developer base, I imagine with the price tag alone on such a powerful device that most developer's across the Android platform will buy a nexus 7. The developer support for the device is sure to be widespread. Quad core > dual core too. Not to mention that its Google's first true nexus tablet :biggrin:

It's a little ridiculous to me that THIS has ICS and my Droid4 still doesn't :angry:
 
Sooo....like, no one knows whether the touchscreen is capacitive or resistive? I'm not finding any specs which will say. Should we assume resistive, since it's low-end (and therefore has only single-point gestures)?

Whichever one of those two sucks more, I'm sure that's what it is.

Yeah I would imagine it is resistive. For the price I also wouldn't have high hopes for good build quality or nice parts, like the screen.

Also, it doesn't say anything about the Android market being included, so I doubt that is there along with other gapps. It may be possible to sideload it (them), especially if rooted.

While the device may not be a terrible device, generally you get what you pay for. In this case, while it is very surprising, and awesome that it has ICS, I wouldn't have very high expectations about this.
