Budget Android tablet maker Ematic’s latest entry isn’t as some of the company’s offerings, but what the Ematic Cinema Tab lacks in rock bottom pricing, it makes up for in size. It’s a 13.3 inch tablet designed for watching videos, among other things.
It’s even got a built-in kickstand that lets you prop it up and use it like a small TV (or large tablet that just happens to be propped up on a table).
I spotted the Ematic Cinema Tab ETH102 in an FCC listing, but it’s already available for purchase from Adorama for $300.
Gettington.com also sells the tablet for $350 — I wouldn’t normally mention the more expensive store, but the retailer’s product listing page has a few photos and a more detailed spec sheet than Adorama.
The Ematic Cinema Tab features a 13.3 inch, 720p display, a 1.6 GHz Rockchip RK3066 ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage, and a 1000mAh, 37Whr battery.
It has a capacitive multitouch display, a microSD card slot, 2 USB ports, and WiFi. The tablet runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software, measures 13.3″ x 9.1″ x 0.5″ and according to Gettington it weighs 2.7 pounds, which seems kind of heavy to me — so I’m wondering if that’s actually the shipping weight.
The tablet reportedly gets around 5 hours of battery life, which should be good enough for watching a movie or two between charges.
The Cinema Tab joins a relatively small group of 13.3 inch Android tablets (many with similar specs), including the Archos Arnova FamilyPad, Kocaso GX1400, and Colorfly CT132.
