  2. Looks really interesting, though I went for the Sero7Pro for the same price at Walmart…Android 4.2 and 1280×800 res.

    For a cheap tablet, it is surprisingly good…I really have no complaints at all, though I got a screen protector for it due to it being a fingerprint magnet.

  3. I wonder everytime somebody talking about cheap tablet starts to sale in us.
    Here in russia we have HUNDREDS of cheapest tablets. It is real invasion from china. Retail prices starts from about 50 usd. More or less interesting models costs about 100 usd.
    Check aliexpress. You can find there many b-brands with quality on par with asus, lenovo, acer and so on.

  4. This was a very helpful article Janet, I feel like Ematic doesn’t get enough of a spotlight that it deserves. It might not be the most versatile and impactive brands out there, but there’s many of us out here that are on a budget so I think it’s important to have a “spotlighted” value tablet brand for everyone to know about. Plus, they actually have a bunch of other gadgets and accessories other than tablets.
