Ematic introduces $100 quad-core Android tablet

Ematic has made a habit of releasing dirt cheap Android tablets over the past few years, but you often pretty much get what you pay for. But the falling cost of components means that cheap tablets aren’t nearly as bad as they used to be, and Ematic’s latest actually doesn’t look all that bad.

The Ematic EGQ307 is a 7 inch tablet with a quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and a rather affordable price tag of $100.

It’s available now from B&H and Walmart.

The tablet features a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive multitouch display, a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, and 8GB of storage. It also has a microSD card slot, a mini HDMI port, a VGA camera on the front, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi.

The EGQ307 is a Google Certified device which comes with access to the Google Play Store and other Google Apps including Gmail and Google Maps.

Ematic also offers the tablet in a range of colors including black, blue, red, and yellow.

    Impressive specs. I wonder if the Venue 8 is being discounted to 129$ this Black Friday because there is an 8 inch tablet just around the corner which will be better and cheaper than it.

    The specs read well generally, although the resolution is a little on the low side.

      The cheaper 7″ quad cores from China often seem to use ATM7029.

    Wow! Only $99? I just ordered one from WalMart. Looks like a nice tablet, but 4 hours of battery life is kind of short. Will post a review when it comes in the mail.

      That might be the hidden flaw in this tablet.
      3 hours is fairly short, but it makes me wonder if there might be room in there for a bigger battery to be hacked in later?

    I just bought this tablet from Walmart for $99 and it is amazing! I am soo happy with it compared to the problems I was having with my ipad. I’m starting to like android and definitely THUMBS UP EMATIC!!

      Please, common, you’re not fooling anyone. Can’t Ematic marketing department hire someone a bit less conspicuous?
