The Ematic E-glide Pro X is an Android 4.0 tablet with a 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. It has a 9.7 inch IPS display and a capacitive multitouch screen with support for 10-point input.

You can pre-order the tablet from J&R for $219.99, where it’s listed as “coming soon.”

Ematic E-glide Pro X

The tablet has a 9.7 inch, 800 x 600 pixel display, 1 GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, and Android 4.0 software. The processor is unspecified.

Ematic isn’t exactly a top-tier tablet maker. But for a few bucks more than the price of the Amazon Kindle Fire, this tablet offers a larger (but lower resolution) display, twice the RAM, a front-facing camera, and Android 4.0 operating system.

Another 9.7 inch tablet from Ematic also showed up at the FCC website this week.

At first I thought the two tablets were one and the same, but the model shown at the FCC has a 1024 x 720 pixel display. The camera is also located in a different place and there are Android menu buttons on the side of the tablet in the FCC model but not on the tablet shown at the J&R website.

  1. If that’s really an IPS screen, it’s almost guaranteed to be the same 1024×768 display from the iPad/iPad2. The listing on J&R’s page says 800×480, which is definitely not the case. They tend to have issues on their pre-order details. If it really is a lower resolution display, then it likely isn’t IPS.

    1. Definitely agree, this is likely the 1024×768 IPS screen of the old iPad. The product description is probably wrong.

      It is so good that the iPad went to a higher resolution, now LG and Samsung can sell those panels to cheapo OEMs. The development and equipment capital is likely already amortized so they can sell it dead cheap.

  2. As your recent deals of the day indicate, there is a flood of refurbed tablets around the $200 mark.  Some of them, like the Pantech Element, were introduced just before CES 2012.  Some have 3G or 4G radios, dual core CPUs, HDMI out, 16 GB internal storage.

    If one waits long enough (or if NVIDIA is correct in its Tegra 3 prediction), I’m sure some of the models will include Android 4.0 ICS, IPS panels, and 10″ screens, which this unit has and the refurbs don’t. 

    All in all, it’s going to get tougher and tougher for the no-name tablets to get a foothold.  They will have to price at $150 or below.  

    1. Refurbs aren’t the problem, as I doubt they sell in large enough numbers to impact the marketplace that much (most consumers don’t read trawl the web for refurb bargains). The no-names may feel the pinch more if more companies start selling last year’s models at a discount – as Apple and B&N have started doing. If I can buy a quad-core TF300 for $299 in 2013, that leaves little room for the lower tier to play in.
